African Leagues Round-up

African leagues round-up
14.08.2006

Round-up of league action from around Africa at the weekend and on Monday:

ANGOLA - A goalless draw at home to Primeiro de Maio gave Primeiro de Agosto an eight-point lead at the top of the Girabola. Second-placed Petro Atlético had cut their advantage in midweek.

CAMEROON - Astres Douala scored a last-minute goal to beat Sahel Maroua 3-2. The win kept Astres in second place, four points behind Coton Sport who had beaten Sable Batie in midweek.

ZIMBABWE - Highlanders needed a late penalty from Johannes Ngodozo to beat bottom club Zimbabwe Saints in the Bulawayo derby and stay 13 points clear at the top. Champions CAPS United, with former Zimbabwe captain Moses Chunga in charge of his first game, suffered a third successive defeat when Black Rhinos won 1-0.

ZAMBIA - Green Buffaloes stormed into a 4-0 lead inside 50 minutes against Nchanga Rangers before conceding three goals and having to hang on for victory. Champions ZANACO, with two games in hand over second-placed Buffaloes, did not play and lead by eight points.

IVORY COAST - Sewe Sport won 2-1 at Stella Abidjan to go back to the top of Ligue 1 with champions AEC Abidjan engaged in African Champions League action. Sewe's victory put them one point ahead of ASEC, who play Racing Daloa on Thursday.

EGYPT - Zamalek's new signing Amr Zaki scored on his debut, netting the club's 2,000th league goal in a 3-0 win over ENPPI on Thursday. Alexandria club Olympic, after winning promotion to the Premier League, sacked coach Mustafa Younes on Monday after losing their first two games of the season. Ismaili and Petrojet are the only two sides with a 100 percent record after two rounds of fixtures.

ALGERIA - French coach Rene Lobello made a winning start as USM Alger beat Chabab Belouzidad 2-0 in their first game of the season on Thursday. Moulay Haddou's early penalty and a 25th minute strike from Bilel Dziri ensured victory. USMA finished second last season to JS Kabylie, who did not play because of their African Champions League game on Sunday.

Angolan striker Flávio scored his first league goal in almost a year as champions Al Ahli headed to top of the league with a 3-1 away win over Asyut Petroleum on Monday. After three matches, the African champions are tied at the top with Ismaili and Harras Al Hodoud.

Ismaili were held to a 1-1 draw by ENPPI, also on Monday while Harras Al Hodoud beat Tersana 1-0.

ALGERIA
An early goal from striker Seddik Berradja handed Mouloudia Oran a hard-fought 1-0 win over USM Alger and the early leadership of the first division on Monday.

Champions JS Kabylie, who had their opening match of the season postponed last weekend, opened the defence of their title with a goalless draw at NA Hussein-Dey on Monday.

- - - -

IVORY COAST
ASEC Abidjan recovered from a midweek setback in the league to go two points clear after their closest rivals Sewe Sport unexpectedly lost.

TUNISIA
Champions Esperance were held to a 1-1 draw in their opening day derby with Club Africain on Saturday, Taoufik Hammami scoring 10 minutes from time to save Esperance from defeat.

ANGOLA

Primeiro de Agosto drew 0-0 with arch rivals Petro Atlético in the traditional classic derby of the GiraBola season on Sunday to stay eight points clear.

CAMEROON
Coton Sport increased their lead in the first division after Sunday's 2-1 at Sahel Maroua. They now lead Canon Yaoundé by four points. Canon were held to a 1-1 draw at Sable de Batie while third placed Astres Douala also drew away in goalless encounter at Racing Bafoussam on Sunday.

A round-up of league action from around Africa at the weekend and on Monday:

ANGOLA
Primeiro de Agosto extended their lead at the top of the GiraBola to 12 points with a 2-1 win over Progresso Sambizanga.

The army club needed a stoppage time penalty from Joãozinho to ensure Sunday's win. AS Aviacão missed out on a chance to move into second place on Monday, losing 4-3 at home to Benfica Lubango despite rallying with three goals in the last 17 minutes after falling four behind just after the hour mark.

- - - -

CAMEROON
Coton Sport secured their fourth successive premier league title on Sunday, moving four points clear with a single round of the championship to be decided.

A 3-0 home win over Impots FC pushed Coton Sport to 52 points, four ahead of second placed Canon Yaoundé. Canon scored a 1-0 triumph over Esperance in their penultimate game of the season on Sunday.

- - - -

SOUTH AFRICA
Zambian international Chris Katongo returned from trials at Dundee United in Scotland to score twice for Jomo Cosmos as they won 2-0 at home to AmaZulu on the first weekend of the new season.

- - - -

IVORY COAST
ASEC Abidjan's stranglehold on the title race was strengthened at the weekend without even kicking a ball as their nearest challengers both lost at home.

ASEC, involved in the African Champions League on Sunday, remain two points clear of Sewe Sport but now with a game in hand. Sewe were beaten 2-1 by Entente Bingerville on Saturday. Third placed Denguele, six points off the leaders, lost 1-0 to Sable Bouane on Sunday.

- - - -

EGYPT
International midfielder Hosni Abd Rabou marked his return to Ismaili with a controversial late penalty that ensured a 2-1 away win over Petrojet on Saturday and top place in the premier league.

Ismaili won 2-1 away to move to 10 points from their opening four matches. Abd Rabou, who played at Racing Strasbourg in France last season, was joined on the score sheet by Mohamed Fadel. Ismaili lead by two points from Al Ittihad and Arab Contractors.

- - - -

ZIMBABWE
Highlanders stretched their premier league lead to 12 points as they won on Saturday and then saw their closest challengers Motor Action held to a draw on Sunday.

Highlanders beat Monomotapa 4-2 at home to move to 50 points for the season. Motor Action, who had beaten Highlanders last weekend, drew 2-2 away at Hwange, allowing their opponents to come from behind for a share of the spoils.

- - - -

ZAMBIA
Kabwe Warriors missed out on a chance to go second in the premier league after being beaten 2-1 at Nkwazi on Sunday. Warriors stay on 38 points, two behind Green Buffaloes. ZANACO, who were in cup action, have a 10 point lead.

- - - -

ALGERIA
Paradou AC ended Mouloudia Oran's 100 percent start to the new season with a 2-0 win on Friday to go top.

Abdelmalek Touati and an own goal from Cameroonian Augustin Gilles Bunya pushed Paradou to seven points, one ahead of Mouloudia Oran and USM Alger, who beat Widad Tlemcen 3-0 on Friday. Veteran midfielder Bilel Dziri scored two of the goals for last season's runners-up.

Coton Sport win fourth Cameroon title in a row
Reuters
28.08.2006


Coton Sport secured their fourth successive Premier League title in Cameroon on Sunday, moving four points clear of their nearest rivals with one match left.

A 3-0 home win over Impots FC gave Coton Sport 52 points, four more than second-placed Canon Yaounde.

Canon were also weekend winners with a 1-0 triumph over Esperance.

Coton Sport qualify for next year's African Champions League. They failed to reach the lucrative league phase in their three previous campaigns in that competition.

Not quite sure if this is a good example as it may not count for the whole of Africa but In Gambia crowds drew of about two grandstands of the whole stadium.

I cant speak for all of Africa but in North Africa (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia) the games are always packed. Regular games we're talking 20,000-30,000. For derbies and classics, there can be as many as 90,000 people.

Ocean Boys set to clinch maiden Nigerian league crown
AFP in Abuja
09.09.2006


Unfancied Ocean Boys defeated Wikki Tourists of Bauchi by a lone goal late Friday to stay on course to winning a maiden Nigerian league title.

Ocean Boys now top the four-team tournament with six points from two matches. Nasarawa United moved to second place after a 1-0 victory over bottom team Kwara United while Wikki are third in the standings with a point.

The Yenagoa-based club netted the match winner through impressive skipper Blessing Okardi after only 10 minutes to stay on course for this year's Nigerian league crown.

Despite Wikki being reduced to 10 men after Abu Ali was sent off in the 55th minute, they pushed Ocean Boys all the way in the second half.

In the other play-off match Nasarawa United shot back into the reckoning with a lone goal victory over favourites Kwara United.

The turning point of the game was when Kwara's Tochukwu Okoli was sent off after a second booking. Nasarawa took advantage of their numerical strength to score the match-winner through Emma Onuh on 76 minutes.

The championship play-offs will be rounded up Sunday with the overall winner as well as runners-up representing the country at next year's CAF Champions League.

The third-placed team will feature in the CAF Confederation Cup.

African league round-up
by Mark Gleeson
Reuters in Johannesburg
12.09.2006

A round-up of African leagues from the weekend and on Monday:

ALGERIA

Entente Setif won 2-0 at Paradou AC on Monday to leapfrog above their opponents at the top of the standings. Isaad Bourahli scored both goals to put Setif ahead of Paardou on goal difference. Both side have 10 points. USM Alger are third, one point behind, after beating CA Bordj Bou Arreridj 2-1 in Monday's other match.

-------------
ANGOLA

Primeiro de Agosto extended their lead at the top of the Girabola to 11 points after a 2-2 away draw at relegation-threatened Académica do Soyo on Saturday. On Monday, AS Aviacão, who won three championships in the last four seasons, failed to move out of fifth spot after losing 1-0 to FC Bravos Maquis. They are 14 points behind the leaders.

--------------------
SOUTH AFRICA

Moroka Swallows were the only side to register a victory in the seven premier league matches played at the weekend and even then needed a goal five minutes from time by new Zimbabwean signing Evans Gwekwerere to win at Silver Stars. Jomo Cosmos and Black Leopards went to the head of the standings after both drawing at the weekend, while champions Mamelodi Sundowns registered their first points with a goalless draw at AmaZulu in Durban.

---------------------------
IVORY COAST

ASEC Abidjan tightened their stranglehold on the title race on Sunday after second-placed Sewe Sport missed another opportunity to cut into their lead. A 0-0 draw at Jeunesse Club Abidjan left Sewe six points behind ASEC and having played one match more. ASEC, who were involved in the African Champions League on Sunday, now need just a single point from their last three matches to win the Ivorian championship for a seventh successive season.

----------------------
TUNISIA

Mohamed Ali Gharnai scored a 21st minute winner as Club Africain beat Stade Tunisien on Saturday to share the lead in the first division after the weekend. Esperance Zarzis overcame Olympique Beja on Sunday with a first minute goal from Abdou Janneh to join Club Africain on four points.

----------------------
EGYPT

Ismaili's 3-1 win over Friday over army club Al Gaish saw them remain unbeaten and take a two point lead in the premier league over Al Ittihad and Arab Contractors. Alexandria-based Al Ittihad came from behind to run out 2-1 winners at home against Tersana while Arab Contractors were also a goal down before winning 2-1 against ENPPI on Saturday. Champions Al Ahli lie seventh but have two matches in hand because of their participation in the group phase of the African Champions League.

----------------------
ZIMBABWE

Highlanders were held to a goalless draw by Black Rhinos on Sunday but still have a 10-point lead at the top of the premier league. Motor Action went back into second pace after winning 1-0 away at Shabanie Mine on Sunday. Masvingo United dropped back to third, two points behind the leaders after a 0-0 draw with Dynamos in Harare.

Amakhosi and Ezenkosi in four-goal thriller
Posted on 14 September 2006 - 00:25
Kaizer Chiefs 2 (17. Bartlett 21 min, 7. Motaung Jnr 88 min)
Jomo Cosmos 2 (11. Katongo 7 & 20 min) FNB Stadium
13th September 2006
Premier Soccer League
Temperature: 22° C
Chiefs put up the fight of their lives against Jomo Cosmos at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening as they turned around an early two goal deficit to share the spoils with Jomo Sono’s men in what can only be described as a highly entertaining game, that kept all those at the FNB Stadium riveted and on their edge of their seats from the word go.

It was The Amakhosi who did all the early running and were able to create the first goal scoring opportunity, as David Obua sent in a long searching ball from the left which was well controlled by Shaun Bartlett, who once he had the ball under control tested warmed Khumalo in the Cosmos goal with a shot from close range. That was on three minutes and then three minutes later in the sixth minute; Bartlett again came close as he shot narrowly wide of Khumalo’s goal off a Chiefs corner.

As Chiefs were beginning to stamp their authority on the game a lapse in concentration at the back saw Chris Katongo steal possession and start a move towards the Chiefs goal, he sent a short pass to Sam Magalefa who returned the favor. The Zambian international was able to collect the return ball and found himself in acres of space in the Chiefs 18 yard area. The leagues top goal scorer then struck the ball past Fernandez to give Cosmos the lead one could say against the run of play.

The Amakhosi began to find openings and were fighting the way back into the game that was until a Chiefs attack broke down and Cosmos counter attacked quickly. Katongo was fed the ball and he moved with lightening speed into the Chiefs penalty area. As a result he was able to complete his brace in the 20th minute as he shot past a helpless Fernandez as Cosmos went two goals up. That is where Cosmos dominance ended as Chiefs hit back immediately.

Arthur Zwane, who did not feature when Chiefs drew with Benoni United, was in an ungiving mood and showed his determination to keep his place in the starting eleven, as he set about tearing the Cosmos defence apart. Zwane ran at three Cosmos defenders and left them in his wake as he was able to send in a cross into the danger area which, Shaun Bartlett needed no second invitation in getting the ball into the back of the net as a result scoring his first official goal for Chiefs.

Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp was not pleased with the performance of his defence early on. He set about making changes and he took off Captain Cyril Nzama and brought on Derrick Spencer, in an effort to tighten things off. The Coaches’ gamble almost paid dividends when on thirty minutes, Spencer was played a short pass from a free kick and he struck the ball with venom from way out. Khumalo was unsighted as the ball whizzed past him and rocketed onto the post.

Chiefs continued their domination of proceedings in the second half and had a hatful of chances, which had they converted would have seen them probably scoring five or more goals. Their second half fight back continued with Shaun Bartlett bringing out the best in Khumalo. This was after Arthur Zwane had once again done some good work down the right and sent in a pin point ball for Bartlett, who turned and shot the ball at Khumalo who was at full stretch to keep the ball out. Soon after that, Jimmy Tau tested the Cosmos goalkeeper with a good effort from distance, the Cosmos keeper could not hold onto the ball and punched it downwards, David Mathebula reacted quickest to the rebounded ball and headed the ball goal wards but looked on as his header went inches wide.

As Chiefs continued to attack it looked as though they would be rewarded when Kaizer Motaung Junior was brought down in the Cosmos 18 yard area on 74 minutes. Instead of pointing to the penalty spot the referee booked Motaung for simulation. The referee’s inconsistency did not affect Chiefs as Shaun Bartlett, went close to finding the net two minutes later off a corner, Kaizer Junior shot wide when the rebound fell to his feet. As the game moved into the final five minutes Kaizer Junior again made himself a nuisance for the Cosmos defence, and along with David Mathebula were involved in a goal mouth melle but Cosmos eventually composed themselves and cleared their lines.

In the final minutes of normal time Cosmos let their guard down and Chiefs, lead by Scara Ngobese and David Obua combined in a number of short passes which eventually lead to Obua playing a ball to Kaizer Motaung Junior. Just as he did on the opening day of the season The Amakhosi striker came to the rescue of Chiefs and found an equalizer for Chiefs with a well taken effort from the edge of the Cosmos 18 yard area, which deceived Khumalo and flew past him and rested in the Cosmos goal mouth, Sending the crowd and Ernst Middendorp into delirium and ensured that Chiefs remained unbeaten in the 2006 – 2007 season.

In the lead up to the game, Ernst Middendorp had called on some of his senior players, inpiticular the likes of Shaun Bartlett, Siyabonga Nkosi and David Obua in particular to put in the kind of performance that will help lift the team. On Wednesday night’s performance it is clearly evident that they heeded the coaches’ call as Chiefs looked a more dangerous team then they were in the goalless draw against Benoni United on Sunday. Ernst Middendorp will take a lot of heart from his team’s performance against Cosmos and will be hoping that they can maintain the momentum as they prepare for their next league game against Ajax Cape Town in Kimberley on Sunday.

Nigerian league kings sack Belgian coach
AFP in Lagos
21.09.2006


Recently-crowned Nigerian league champions Ocean Boys have sacked Belgian coach Maurice Cooreman for gross indiscipline, according to club chairman Ngor Silva.

Silva said Cooreman has been sacked with immediate effect following "negative comments" he made about the club.

"He has generated negative publicity for the club with his unfounded remarks and as such we have no option than to let him go," said the top club official.

Cooreman, who has worked with several local clubs including Insurance, Lobi Stars and Gabros, has been widely quoted in the local press saying that he has not been paid his salary for the past six months.

Ocean Boys emerged as league champions against the odds for the first time in their history on September 10 when they finished top of a mini-tournament for the top four clubs during the regular season.

They will now represent Nigeria in next year's CAF Champions League alongside runners-up Nasarawa United.

ASEC Abidjan win seventh successive Ivory Coast title
Reuters in Abidjan
21.09.2006


ASEC Abidjan secured a seventh successive league title in the Ivory Coast on Thursday, winning 1-0 against Ecole Formation Yeo Martial to move out of the reach of their closest challengers.

ASEC, coached by Frenchman Patrick Liewig, made sure of the title with two games to spare.

A 22nd-minute goal from Didier Ya Konan ensured the win for the hosts, who need only a draw to clinch the title. They are nine points clear of second-placed Sewe Sport.

ASEC now turn their focus to the African Champions League where they meet holders Al Ahli of Egypt in the first leg of their semi-final next weekend.
