Egypt Cup Roundup: Zamalek oust Ghazl El-Mahalla as Wadi Degla progress
Zamalek overcame Ghazl El-Mahalla whilst Wadi Degla came back from behind to beat Arab Contractors amongst other games in the Egypt Cup.
Zamalek 2-1 Ghazl El-Mahalla
Relegated from the Egyptian Premier League and several financial problems didn’t prevent El Falaheen from putting up a fight against the Whites at the Cairo Stadium.
Ahmed Ali put the hosts ahead when he guided his header past El-Mahdi Soliman before Dominique da Silva converted a spot kick to make it 2-0.
Ten minutes from time, Moataz Mahrous scored for Ghazl El-Mahalla but it only proved to be a consolation goal.
Arab Contractors 1-2 Wadi Degla
Degla came from behind to win at the Osman Ahmed Osman Stadium, thus booking themselves a place in the last eight of the Egypt Cup.
Mohamed Farouk put the Mountain Wolves ahead inside four minutes before Mostafa Talaat made it 1-1 38 minutes later.
Former Ismaily man Mohab Said then made it 2-1 thirteen minutes from time to take the 2013 runners-up to the quarter-finals.
Haras El-Hodood 1-1 ENPPI (4-3 pens)
A replay of the 2008/2009 final saw the same outcome unfold. Abdelsalam Nagah put Hodood in the lead before Ahmed El-Saidi made it 1-1 taking the game directly to a penalty shootout.
It was all up to Haras captain Mohamed Halim and he duly converted his penalty, booking the 08/09 and 09/10 champions a place in the quarter-finals.
Al Qanah 1-1 Al-Ragaa (5-4 pens)
Having already been relegated, Al Qanah entered the game with hopes of reaching the last eight. However, they fell behing through Ibrahim Hassan who put the Matruh side in the lead.
Shady Taha though had other ideas when he equalised for Al Qanah to take the game to penalties, in which the Matruh side won with a scoreline of 5-4.
