SC Kiyovu ended the first leg of the Primus National Football League on top of the standings despite being forced to a 1-all draw away to Musanze over the weekend.
Kiyovu had skipper Eric Serugaba to thank for the equalizer that cancelled former Kiyovu captain Jean Shyaka’s first half goal.
The Mumena-based side finished the first leg with 26 points in 13 matches played this season.
Police FC produced an admirable defensive performance to dig in for a 1-0 Primus league victory against home side AS Kigali at Stade de Kigali.
Striker Peter Kagabo scored the only goal of the game on 4th minute when he rounded off an AS Kigali defender to shoot a long range shot past goalie Emery Mvuyekure.
Both sides had several attempts on goal but they did little to find the net again for the entire duration of the game with Police defending harder to safeguard their victory until the final minute.
The victory put Police on second position with 25 points with a superior goal difference over Rayon Sport who also snatched a 3-0 win over Espoir to move to third position.
Police has an opportunity of finishing the first leg on top of the standings should they secure a win in their re-scheduled fixture away to Espoir which has been set for January 19.
Elsewhere, Marines shocked La Jeunesse to a 2-1 victory at Mumena stadium while APR was also forced to a goalless draw by Etincelles at Umuganda stadium.
In Nyamagabe, Mukura won the Southern Province derby with a 1-0 victory over Amagaju and Muhanga secured a home victory over Isonga at Muhanga artificial turf.
The second leg of the Primus National Football League will return back on January 23.
