Rayon Sports aka Gikundiro secured their berth in the semi-finals of the Peace Cup with a commanding 5-1 aggregate triumph over second-tier outfit Vison FC in the quarterfinals.

 

Maintaining a two-goal lead from the first leg, The Blues extended their dominance at Kigali Pele Stadium on Tuesday, clinching the second leg 3-1. Manager Julien Mette implemented strategic adjustments to his initial lineup, introducing Youssef Rharb, Paul Gomis, Felix Ndekwe, and Francois Mugisha for the second leg.

 

Ndekwe initiated the scoring in the 12th minute, capitalizing on Kevin Muhire's delivery to propel The Blues ahead. Elie Ganijuru added to the tally in the 24th minute, with his cross deflecting off the goalkeeper's hand and finding the net.

 

While Vision FC attempted a comeback, Jean Claude Harerimana narrowed the gap with a goal in the 51st minute. Harerimana aimed for an equalizer with a long-range effort in the 54th minute, but Rayon's goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye made a crucial save, albeit sustaining an injury in the process.

 

In stoppage time, Rayon earned a penalty after substitute Arsene Tuyisenge was fouled in the box. Striker Paul Gomis confidently converted the penalty, marking his inaugural goal in 'Blues' colors. Rayon now awaits the winner between Police and Gorilla FC for their semi-final encounter.
