Football: Gor Mahia revival ends abruptly

ENPPI of Egypt brought a revival by Gor Mahia of Kenya to an abrupt halt this weekend as they triumphed 3-0 in a CAF Confederation Cup tie. The Nairobi club had hoped to build on a 5-0 triumph over Anse Reunion in the Seychelles this month -- their first victory in the competition after two earlier appearances resulted in four losses and no goals. But Ivorian Vincent Die Foneye broke the deadlock on 30 minutes in Cairo, Ahmed Omran scored a second before half-time and Ahmed Raouf completed a comfortable victory five minutes from time.

Gabonese club US Bitam created a CAF Confederation Cup record when they overwhelmed Desportivo Guadalupe from Sao Tome e Principe 12-1 at the weekend.

Football: Late goals spoil South Sudan club debut

El Nasir became the first South Sudan club to compete in a CAF competition this weekend, but they conceded a couple of late goals to lose 3-1 at Azam of Tanzania in the Confederation Cup. Ivorian Kipre Tchetche was the dream-wrecker as he gave Azam the lead for the second time in Dar es Salaam on 80 minutes and added a third deep in stoppage time at the 60,000-seat national stadium. Abdi Kassim put the Tanzanians ahead 14 minutes into the preliminary round, first leg game and Jacob Osulo levelled on the half-hour mark for the visitors from South Sudan capital Juba.
