The Khartoum based side won 5-0 for the biggest win of the competition so far.
It took 21 minutes for former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah’s side to fine the back of the net through a tap in by captain Salah Eldin after Telecom custodian Nzokira Jeef saved his initial kick from the spot. Eldin doubled the lead on 36 minutes to give his side a 2-0 lead at half time.
Coach Appiah brought on Badri Eldin and it took him only two minutes to find the back of the net in the 80th minute for the fourth goal before Murwani Salih signed off with the fifth goal minutes later.
Appiah commended his team for the display but was quick to caution them against complacency in the next games.
“We have won and we can take it from there to the next game. It is always a challenge to win with many goals and in two days you have another game so they (players) shouldn’t be complacent in our next game” said Appiah.
In the second game of the day, Gor Mahia continued with their fine form cruising to a 3-1 win over KMKM of Zanzibar.
Gor Mahia went up after only four minutes following a fine play from Godfrey Walusimbi and Michael Olunga, who slotted past the KMKM goalie for Medi Kagere score the first one.
The Kenyans dominated for another 10 minutes but their defence broke loose to give away a corner kick that resulted in a goal for KMKM through Mateo Antony Saimon on 14 minutes.
In the second half, Olunga restored Goa Mahia’s lead in the 70th minute before scoring his second of the day ten minutes from time to secure victory.
Gor Mahia coach, Frank Nuttal lauded his team’s display whilst singling out youngster Olunga for praise.
“It’s a great run we are having but it’s important we go up till the end with this because the most important part is how you finish not how you start” said Nuttal.
Olunga is the leading top scorer in the competition so far with three goals from two games.
