Het blijkt maar weer dat je niet altijd moet geloven wat er in de kranten staat. Volgens The New Times kwam de Police met 1-0 voor voordat het 1-1 werd. In werkelijkheid werd het eerste doelpunt door APR gescoord. Gelukkig hadden ze de eindstand wel goed weergeven.

APR claim 10th Peace Cup title
By Ostine Arinaitwe

Peace cup
APR  4- 2  Police
3rd place play-off
AS Kigali  2-2  Mukura (4-3) penalties
JEAN Baptiste Mugiraneza a.k.a Migi scored a brace to guide APR to their 10th Peace Cup title yesterday at Amahoro Stadium.
Police who were playing in their first final, scored first through prolific goal scorer Kagere Meddie on the 18th minute but the league champions equalized 16 minutes later through Ernest Kwizera’s powerful header.
After the break, Police regained the lead through winger Ibrahim Ndikumasabo and looked like they had done enough only for Migi to score on the 86th minute forcing the tie into extra-time.
A few minutes later, Migi scored his second to give APR a 3-2 lead.
Malawi international Victor Nyirenda then put the tie beyond Police’s reach with APR’s fourth goal.
Earlier on, AS Kigali defeated Mukura 4-3 on penalties in the 3rd place play-off. The sides had settled for 2-all draw in normal time.
APR pocketed Rwf5m for the triumph while Police took home Rwf3m. AS Kigali settled for Rwf1.5m courtesy of MTN Rwanda, the tournament sponsors.
APR’s triumph means that Police misses out on continental football. Kiyovu, who are certain to finish second in the Primus league will now represent Rwanda in next year’s Orange Confederation Cup.

Police storm Peace Cup final
By Ostine Arinaitwe


Police  6-1  Mukura
APR  4-0  AS Kigali
POLICE are a game away from recording their first major silverware in Rwanda’s football history.
The law enforcers ran riot yesterday as they thrashed Mukura 6-1 to reach the Peace Cup final at Amahoro Stadium.
Police, who look recharged under their new Serbian coach Goran Kopunovic, put the tie beyond Mukura’s reach with six unanswered first-half goals.
Primus league top scorer Kagere Meddie returned from injury to net a hat trick while midfielders Leandre Sekamana, Gashugi Abdul Karim and Eric Ndahayo also got their names on the score sheet. Muvara Valens Fils then netted Mukura’s consolation on the 74th minute.
In the other semi-final match, APR thumped AS Kigali 4-0.
Striker Ernest Kwizera scored a brace while Haruna Niyonzima and Johnson Bagoole scored the other goals. The final is slated for Saturday.
Police know that besides ending their trophy jinx, victory in the final will also give them a ticket to play in the Orange Confederation Cup.
