  • Description

    THE CONGO-KINSHASA V. CLUB FOOTBALL TEAM SCORED A TWO-ONE VICTORY OVER THE VISITING CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE RENAISSANCE IN A MATCH AT THE TATA RAPHAEL STADIUM IN KINSHASA RECENTLY.

    THE V. CLUB WERE WEAKENED BY THE ABSENCE OF FOUR OF THEIR USUAL PLAYERS, TWO OF WHOM WERE AWAY PLAYING IN A MATCH AGAINST THE SUDAN.

    BUT DESPITE THIS DEFICIENCY THE HOME TEAM SOON STARTED TO PROVE THEIR SUPERIORITY OVER THE VISITORS. RENAISSANCE PLAYED A ROUGH, VIGOROUS GAME THAT WAS MORE A DEMONSTRATION OF NERVE THAN OF TACTICS, BUT NEITHER SIDE HAD SCORED BY HALF TIME.

    THE FIRST GOAL FOR THE HOME TEAM WAS LOUDLY CONTESTED BY THE VISITORS, BUT AFTER CONSIDERATION THE REFEREE DECIDED TO ALLOW IT. IN THE 63RD MINUTE OF THE MATCH RENAISSANCE SCORED THE EQUALISER.

    THE V. CLUB CLINCHED THE RESULT WITH A SECOND GOAL IN THE DYING MINUTES OF THE MATCH -- BUT THIS ONE WAS ALSO CONTESTED. THE OBJECTIONS WERE OVER-RULED AND THE GOAL ALLOWED.

    IT BROUGHT THE MATCH TO AN UNFRIENDLY END. STILL PROTESTING LOUDLY THE RENAISSANCE TEAM WALKED OFF THE PITCH WITH FOUR MINUTES OF THE GAME STILL TO BE PLAYED.
