  • Description

    ENGELBERT OF LUBUMBASHI, SOCCER CHAMPIONS OF CONGO KINSHASA MADE PROGRESS IN THE AFRICAN CHAMPIONS CUP COMPETITION BY BEATING "LES ABEILLES" (THE BEES) FROM POINTE NOIRE, CONGO BRAZZAVILLE, BY TWO GOALS TO NIL.

    THE GAME WAS PLAYED AT THE TATA RAPHAEL STADIUM, KINSHASA, BEFORE A CROWD OF 50,000 FANS.

    EARLY ATTACKS BY THE POINTE NOIRE TEAM FOUND THE ENGELBERT GOALKEEPER IN EXCELLENT FORM, BUT AS THE GAME PROGRESSED THE LUBUMBASHI TEAM'S SUPERIORITY BECAME MORE AND MORE CLEAR-CUT.

    LUBUMBASHI MOUNTED A NUMBER OF DANGEROUS ATTACKS AND IT WAS DURING ONE OF THESE THAT THE TEAM'S CENTRE-FORWARD WAS BROUGHT DOWN BY THE OPPOSING CENTRE-HALF AND THE REFEREE AWARDED LUBUMBASHI A PENALTY, FROM WHICH THEY SCORED.

    THE GAME WAS PLAYED CLEANLY, HOWEVER, AND THE POINTE NOIRE TEAM WAS A LITTLE UNLUCKY TO CONCEDE ANOTHER GOAL. BUT LUBUMBASHI WERE DESERVING WINNERS. THEIR TWO-GIRL VICTORY MEANS THEY PROGRESS FURTHER IN THE AFRICAN CHAMPIONS CUP COMPETITION.
