Africans too good for World Stars

African All Stars cruised home to a 4-0 win over World All Stars in a Group B tie in the ISI Palm KMH Super Cup at KMH Stadium in Chaom Chao on Sunday evening.

Africa ran in first-half goals from Mohammad, Momoh Degule and Julius Osegha and Julius Oiboh added killed off the game with an early second half.

In the day’s second game, Benjeng Family took firm control against Avatar FC after Chan Kumheak and May Sasol gave them a 2-0 first-half cushion. Ol Ravy made it three just past the hour-mark, but Avatar fought back.

With Korede scoring twice in a matter of six minutes, Avatar came charging back to put pressure on Benjeng, who stoutly defended their lead to end up 3-2 winners.

In sharp contrast to the opening day’s feast of goals, the second day was more subdued, but the size of the crowd was up, much to the delight of organisers, who were also happy with the smooth operations on their newly introduced e-ticketing system.
