Rivers United overcome KCCA in Confed Cup


 Enterprising Bernard Ovoke trying to beat a Ugandan opponent. 

Early goals from Bernard Ovoke and Frederick Obomate helped Rivers United to a 2-1 victory over Kampala City Council in Tuesday’s Caf Confederation Cup Group A match decided at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port-Harcourt.
Ovoke’s first minute goal set the tone for a dazzling first half that was dominated by the home side.
After scoring the opener, he turned goal provider for Obomate who increased the tally on 15 minutes.

United’s defence left the experienced Geoffrey Sserunkuma unmarked, who maximized the opportunity to score KCCA’s consolation goal just before the break.

Despite the exchange of fireworks in the second half, both sides couldn’t find the back of the net.

This is the first time United will score twice in the group stage of the competition.
Victory on match day has moved the Nigerians away from the base of the group.

Interestingly, KCCA won the previous fixture by the same margin.

Rivers: Akande, Nweke, Douhadji, Ovoke (Odah 78'), Olalekan, Zoumana, Obomate (Igbinoba 61'), Sakin, Odumegwu (Keumian 73'), Atuloma, Saka.

KCCA: Kisembo (Ochan 51'), Okot, Awany, Kavuma; Poloto (Kayizzy 68), Muzamiru, Masiko, Muleme; Okello (Ntege 58') Serunkuma, Nsibambi.
