FUFA Super Cup (Friday):
KCC 1 (4) – 1 (3) Victoria University
FUFA Super league defending Champions, Kampala City Council (K.C.C) kick started the 2013/14 football season in a brilliant style with an emphatic victory over the 2013 Uganda Cup winners, Sports Club Victoria University in the FUFA Super Cup match played at Nakivubo Stadium on Friday.
The Jenifer Musisi boys code named ‘The Kasasiro boys’ took an early lead in the 21 st minute through live wire striker, Herman Wasswa after a clever through ball from former SC Villa play maker, Steven Bengo.
Bengo, who showed glimpses of his old self, had a quick one-two inter-play with man of the match, William Wadri before releasing Wasswa, who signed from the arch rivals, Villa last season, to blast the ball in the far corner of Benjamin Ochan in Sports Club Victoria University’s goal posts.
Victoria University replied through a Dennis Iguma decent header on the 57th minute mark to push the game into the FIFA post match penalties.
Majwega the Impact Player:
Cranes talisman, left winger Brian Majwega started the game on the bench. His introduction in the second half for a tired Michael Birungi immediately yielded instant dividends as he executed all the game basics with ease. His vision, dribbles and crosses down the left flank were as eye catching and welcome as a storm is in hell.
In the penalty shoot-out, Muwadda Mawejje, Aloro, Tom Matisko and Richard Malinga converted while Tonny Odur missed KCC’s only penalty.
For Victoria University, Savio Kabugo, Dennis Iguma and goalie Benjamin Ochan scored their efforts while Jackson Kibirige and Henry Lopidia blasted their kicks wide off Ssewbato’s goal posts to handle KCC the title.
Both teams used the match, which is traditionally used to taste the readiness of player via fittness and positional combinations, for trying out the new players recurited in the transfer window. KCC started Steven Bengo (from SC Villa), William Wadri (Proline) and Isaac Ntege (Victors).
Sports Club Victoria University used the platform to taste former SC Villa Goalkeeper, Benjamin Ochan, Muwadda Mawejje (SC Villa), Simon Okwi (KCC), Yassar Mugerwa (Nkumba University) , Muzamiru Mutyaba (Maroons), Ceaser Sapeo (KCC), Joseph Kayiira (Water) and Isaac Muleme (Victors).
