Action between APR and Kirehe during the KAVC International tournament

They may have lost to APR in the final of this year’s KAVC International tournament but Kirehe Volleyball Club still have a shot at silverware this year.

The Rwandan outfit will now turn their focus to their semi-final tie in the national league playoffs as they look to land the title.

“What is important now is the game against IPRC South, winning it would be a very good turning point. Everyone knows how important it is to win the game, we lost against APR but I hope Saturday will be another story and we are ready for the challenge,” Kirehe head coach Fidele Nyirimana told local daily New Times.

IPRC South won the first match 3-2 in Kirehe while Kirehe took second game in Huye to force a decisive game that will be staged in Kirehe.

“We have prepared well and we will keep our fighting spirit in order to win the game. We will give our best and at home we have a good chance to reach the final in-front of our home fans.”

The winner of the tie will face Gisagara in the final of the national league.

The winner of the playoffs will represent Rwanda at next year’s CAVB Club Championships.

Meanwhile APR didn’t make the playoffs and will only take pride in winning the KAVC tournament this year.
