Dec 11, 2010-A late penalty flick awarded by an Egyptian umpire and scored by Bummi Ikiriko denied defending champions Telkom Orange a second win at the Africa Cup of Club championship at the National Hockey Stadium in Accra Ghana.

The match against Yobe Queens from Nigeria who arrived late for the tournament ended in a 1-1 draw. This is a game Telkom Orange would like to forget in a hurry especially after their opening 5-0 win over Sharkia. The forwards fired blanks in a match they could have easily won. The usually reliable front runners Betty Tioni - scorer of two goals against Sharkia and Jackline Ogot could not beat the Yobe Queens goalkeeper. It was left to Jackline Mwangi to score the lone goal in the 68th minute and barely a minute later the Nigerians got the equalizer.

Coach Joseph Openda did not mint his words and alleged biased officiating which prompted him to file a formal complaint with the organizers. “This is a game we could have easily won but made it difficult for ourselves. We created the chances but failed to score and bad refereeing did not help either,” he stated.

In another match, hosts Reformers beat Nigeria’s Heartland 1-0. On the opening day, Extinguishers doused Reformers 3-0.
