Six-time league champion Rayon Sport cruised into the Peace Cup last 16 with a thumping 7-0 victory over amateur side Rwamagana at Stade de Kigali on Sunday.
The blues dominated the game though the underdog seemed eager to prove a point and had some slight ball possession for first 15 minutes.
The deadlock was broken in the 15th minute when Fuadi Ndayisenga struck a tough shot to give the hosts an early lead.
Two minutes later, Cedric Amissi doubled the lead with a well-placed header off Karim Nizigiyimana cross which left Rwamagana custodian frozen in his tracks.
Ndayisenga snatched a brace when he sent another roaring shot from just inside the area which caught the whole defensive line and goalie off guard to ensure a 3-0 win before recess.
The blues charged out from the half time break and five minutes later defender Faustin Usegimana got himself on the scoresheet with a superb goal.
Striker Papy Kamanzi heaped misery on the Rwamagana defence as he snatched a treble with brilliant strikes on 50th, 60th and 80th minute to put the result beyond doubt.
Elsewhere, another surprise shock came in for giants SC Kiyovu as they got knocked out of the competition following a 2-4 penalty loss to Musanze after a goalless draw in normal time.
SC Kiyovu has joined other giants like SC Kiyovu and Police in the exit chamber of this year’s edition.
The heaviest win of the day was registered at Mumena stadium as Primus league side Etincelles thrashed second division side UNR 8-0. Espoir beat Sorwathe 3-0 in Muhanga while Interforce lost to Vision FC 0-1 at Ferwafa turf.
Amagaju secured a 2-1 win over Akagera in Rwamagana; Sec beat Gicumbi 1-0 while Aspor registered a 3-0 win over United Stars in Rwamagana.
The winner will represent Rwanda in the 2014 Caf Confederation Cup.
