    Kigali, Rwanda – (African Boulevard News) – It was a dramatic turn of events at Nyagisenyi Stadium as Amagaju FC secured a crucial 2-1 victory over Gicumbi FC on Wednesday, to move up the ranks and put themselves in contention for promotion to Rwanda’s topflight league.

    The match began with both teams playing with high intensity and energy as they battled for the win. However, it was Gicumbi who broke the deadlock in the 35th minute, with a well-executed free-kick from striker Papius Ishimwe, leaving the Amagaju goalkeeper rooted to his spot.

    Amagaju fought back in the second half, relentlessly pushing forward in search of an equalizer. The equalizer finally came in the 70th minute, courtesy of a well-placed header from forward Gervais Irumva.

    With the momentum now firmly on their side, Amagaju continued to push for the winner, which came in the 85th minute through a brilliant strike from midfielder Herve Nzeyimana. The Amagaju fans erupted in jubilation as they could sense victory was near.

    Speaking after the game, Amagaju FC coach, Jean Marie Ntagwabira, expressed his delight at the win and praised his players for their resilience in bouncing back from a disappointing loss over the weekend. “We knew that this game was vital to our promotion hopes, and I am very proud of my players for giving a good account of themselves,” he said.

    The win sees Amagaju move up to second place in the second division mini-league, with 31 points, two points behind leaders Etoile de l’Est. With only one promotion spot available, the battle for the top spot is likely to be intense and competitive, with much at stake.

    In conclusion, Amagaju FC’s win over Gicumbi FC has positioned them well in the race for promotion to Rwanda’s topflight league, and they will be hoping to maintain their momentum in their upcoming games. The team’s hard work and determination have paid off, and they now have a real chance of achieving their dream of playing in the top tier of Rwandan football.
