Ahly Tripoli of Libya overpowered Uganda’s Nemostars in straight sets to become the first team to claim a semifinal berth.

Tripoli beat Nemostars 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-19) in the quarterfinal of the 2019 Men’s African Club Championship in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday.

Ahly Tripoli will play the winner of Smouha vs Prisons, while Nemostars will play the 5th to 8th classification matches.

Attacker and captain George Aporu was the stand out performer for Nemo with 18 points.

Nemostars became the first Ugandan side to break the group barrier when they made the quarterfinals unbeaten.

They could still finish as high as 5th by the end of the tournament if they win their next two classification games, the first of which will be against Kenyan side Prisons on Monday.

Meanwhile, UCU Doves, the other Ugandan side at the tournament won their classification game against Espoir of the DRC.
