Ashgold in crucial Champs Lge win 1/29/2007
Jonathan Quartey''s stunning finish gave Ghana''s Ashanti Gold a crucial 1-0 away win against Renacimiento of Equatorial Guinea in the Champions League on Sunday.

Quartey volleyed home in the 55th minute to give the Obuasi side a victory in their first appearance in the tournament in ten years.

Ashgold, finalists in their last appearance in 1997, could have won the first-round, first-leg tie by a wider margin but striker Lamini Nasir failed to convert a spot kick just after the break.

Also on Sunday, DR Congo side TP Mazembe beat visiting Police XI of Botswana 3-0 thanks to a hat-trick by international striker Mputu Mabi.

Egyptian club Zamalek defeated Burundi''s Vital''O 4-1 in their game in Cairo.

Strikes from Amr Zaki, Hazem Emam, Mostafa Gaafar and Tarek Al-Sayed secured the win for the home side.

Cameroonian sides Coton Sport and Canon Yaounde were other clubs to take advantage of playing at home, winning by against Uganda Revenue Authority and Etoile du Congo respectively.

Nigerian champions Ocean Boys failed to benefit from their home advantage as they were held to a goalless draw by FC Kallon, the club owned by Sierra Leone international striker Mohammed Kallon.

Meanwhile, Cape Verde''s Sporting Club failed to turn up for their game against Guinea''s Felo Star, staying at home over safety concerns after a violent general strike.

Human rights organisations say at least 60 people were killed and many more injured in a violent 18-day general strike against Guinean President Lansana Conte, which was suspended late on Saturday under a deal with unions.

Felo Star''s secretary-general Mamoudou Drame said Sporting Club had forfeited the tie by failing to turn up, although Confederation of African Football officials were unavailable for comment.
