A stoppage-time goal from the talisman, Njuma Ekosse ensured the Saints and Scholars’ qualification to the second phase of the preliminaries.

The game started with the newly-promoted side gaining momentum in the early minutes of the contest.

Midway into the first half, Catholic University got its first real chance as they were awarded a penalty following a handball foul in Aljazeera’s penalty box. Star boy Njuma stepped up as he scored his 16th goal of the season to give the 2016 mini inter pool finalist the lead.

But Aljazeera didn’t lie low as they got their equalizer a few minutes before the interval to level scores at the break.

The start of the second half looked more favourable for Aljazeera as they took the lead for the first time in the game through a brilliant strike from Obi Essumba in the 62nd minute.

Catholic Unversity almost scored their equalizer after Njuma’s strike from close range was denied by goalkeeper Mbi Leg of Aljazeera.

The Saints and Scholars continue to mount pressure as they search for an equalizer – which finally came from a deflected shot from Lifoter Mborong to put the game all square.

Then, the magical moment of brilliance from the main man – Njuma who scored a dramatic stoppage-time goal to break the hearts of the Aljazeerans as they tiptoe into the second-round preliminaries.

The win for Catholic University SA means they have now won 12 matches in all competitions this season – losing twice and recording one draw.

While for Aljazeera, this is only their fourth defeat in all competitions this season – with nine wins and two draws. They will now have their attention on the mini inter-pool clash against Victoria United.
