Antananarivo, Madagascar, April 6, 2013 – Heavy favourites Ahly (Egypt), FAP (Cameroon) and Ndejje University (Uganda) joined the already qualified Prisons, Pipeline (both Kenya), GS Petroliers, Bejaia (both Algeria) and APR (Rwanda) in the quarterfinals of the 2013 Women's African Club Championship on Saturday.

The teams finished first or second in their pools at the end of the preliminary round at the Palais des Sports in Antanarivo.

Ahly collected their third victory in Pool D to finish as leaders of the pool, followed by FAP who defeated VB Diamand of Madagascar. Ndejje University clinched a crucial victory against Manga Sport (Gabon) in Pool C to finish second.

Other matches saw third victories for GS Petroliers (Algeria) and Pipeline (Kenya) over Prisons (Kenya) and Les AS (Burundi), respectively. MB Bejaia (Algeria) topped Pool A following their win against APR (Rwanda). 

At the end of the preliminary round, Ahly and Pipeline were the only teams to win all their matches without dropping a set. 

Sunday is a rest day for all the participating teams and the competition will resume with the quarterfinal matches on Monday. 

Pool A: 

MB Bejaia (ALG) 3, APR (RWA) 0 (25-21, 25-12, 25-15)

MB Bejaia overcame a sluggish start to defeat APR (Rwanda) in straight sets in 65 minutes. Bejaia started slowly, allowing the Rwandan team opportunities to challenge them in the first set, but then Bejaia controlled the match in the second and third sets. 

Pool B: 

GS Petroliers (ALG) 3, Prisons (KEN) 2 (25-22, 25-27, 25-23, 28-30, 15-12)

In the competition’s most exciting game, GS Petroliers beat Prisons in a match lasting 123 minutes. After dropping a thrilling first set, Prisons rebounded in the second set to have a wide lead 8-3 and 16-11 at the TTOs before Zohra Bensalem and Safia Boukhima brought GSP back to lead 24-22. Prisons responded with good work from setter Jane Wacu to win the set 27-25. The fight became more aggressive in the third set as the Algerians showed a highly disciplined backline defence that prevail narrowly 25-23 to lead 2-1. Prisons fought hard to win the fourth set 30-28 after efficient blocks from both teams. GSP controlled the tiebreak thanks to Prisons’ mistakes to win 15-12.

Water Sport (ETH) 3, Kutlwano (BOT) 0 (25-11, 25-16, 25-22)

Water Sport played their best to fly past Kutlwano. The Ethiopian team sent down some sharp services that upset Kutlwano's reception and aided their attacks. Water Sports finished the pool matches in third position with 1-2 record, leaving Kutlwano at the bottom of the pool with 0-3. 

Pool C:

Pipeline (KEN) 3, Les As (BUR) 0 (25-15, 25-9, 25-10)

Pipeline was in total control during a one-sided match against Les As. The team from Burundi was still feeling the effects of their 3-1 win against Manga Sport the day before and couldn’t sustain their form. Pipeline had good performances from their substitutes and after Les AS fought hard in the first set, were able to fully control the match.

Ndejje University (UGA) 3, Manga Sport (GAB) 0 (27-25, 25-12, 25-14)

Ndejje University (Uganda) qualified for the quarterfinals for the first time following their straight sets victory against Manga Sport in 70 minutes. The Ugandan team was more determined to win as they fought hard in defence and were better in their attacks. They finished second in the pool with 2-1 record, while Manga dropped to 0-3. 

Pool D 

Ahly (EGY) 3, AS Tanda (CIV) 0 (25-10, 25-11, 25-13)

Ahly completed a clean sheet and hammered AS Tanda in the competition's shortest match, which lasted just 50 minutes. Ahly started with substitute players who performed well, especially Nahla Abdelkader and Nermeen Seifelnasr. In the second and third sets, Ahly introduced more of their main players and used strong spike services to upset their opponents’ tactics. Ahly finished the group stage at the top of the pool with a 3-0 win-loss record, while Tanda dropped to 1-2 to place third.

FAP (CMR) 3, VB Diamand (MAD) 1 (18-25, 25-13, 25-14, 25-20)

FAP came back from a set down to pull off a 3-1 win against VB Diamand (Madagascar) in 90 minutes. The Cameroon team started poorly and lost the first set after a good showing from the Madagascar team. FAP concentrated then found top gear to take the next three sets. The victory improved FAP’s record to 2-1 to finish the pool matches in second position, leaving Diamand at the bottom of the pool at 0-3.
