Sarpong’s late winner hands Rayon Sports Kigali derby victory

Ghana-import Michael Sarpong was the hero with a late winner to inspire Rayon Sports to a 1-0 victory over bitterest rivals APR to narrow the gap at the top of the Azam Rwanda Premier League table.

APR went into Saturday’s game at Amahoro National Stadium six points clear at the top, but saw their lead reduced to three points after tasting their third defeat this term.

The former Dreams FC star scored from the spot in stoppage time to seal victory for Rayon after Emmanuel Imanishimwe brought down Gilbert Mugisha in the penalty area.

It was Sarpong’s 11th league goal for the Blues, and the Ghana-born striker trails joint leading scorers; Jules Ulimwengu (Rayon) and Djuma Nizeyimana (SC Kiyovu) by just one goal.
