Jinja S.S’ Joel Madondo celebrates one of his four goals in their 5-1 victory over Citizens

Jinja Secondary School star striker Joel Madondo single handedly led the assault against Mbarara’s Citizen High School with four individual goals in their 5-1 victory at Masaka Recreational stadium.

This was during the second quarter final of the game that followed 9-man Kibuli’s 3-1 shootout win over hosts, Masaka S.S.

Madondo scored as early as the second minute, arguably the fastest goal of the tournament so far.

His striking partner Ivan Wani then tapped home the second from an acute angle as they led 2-0 by the half time break.
