A fully packed Amahoro stadium witnessed a mouthwatering cracker between the two big boys of the land.
APR FC faced Rayon Sports fc and the heated derby swung in favour of APR FC when they defeated their arch rival by 2 goals to 1.
Rayon Sports opened the scoring through Shabaani Hussein aka Tchabalala as early as in the 4th minute hanging on to their lead through the first stanza.
APR FC had other ideas though when they forced the game to level terms in the 62nd minute through a beautifully taken free kick by Muhadjiri Hakizimana sending anxious fans in a frenzy.
Both sides went for the winner towards the last quarter and it paid off for APR FC when substitute Issa Bigirimana put them ahead on the 76th minute.
APR FC were victors on the day winning 2-1 but Rayon Sports had the last laugh as they hang on to win this years Heroes Cup with a healthy goal difference.
In the first match Police FC was held to a barren draw by 10 man AS Kigali.
Final standings of the Heroes Cup as as follows:
