- Bright Stars 0-0 Vipers
After a close scrutiny of team sheets before Bright Stars and Vipers game on the opening day of the 2017-18 season, one can easily term the duel as a mis-match.
Hell no, it would not be until you watched the game, lest followed to the dot of the full time mark.
Bright Stars played with 10 men for almost 75 minutes but still held Miguel Da Costa’s side to a barren draw.
Usual suspect, Jimmy ‘Kachanga’ Kakooza, one player with a career alarming send offs was once again given marching orders for dangerous play on Erisa Ssekisambu on the opening quarter hour mark.
For starters, this is one match that has always given the Venoms as much headache and sleepless moments.
With the red card, it was numerical advantage granted to the visitors for the rest of the match but the home side regrouped and changed strategy to at least hold onto the score-less state of the match.
Bright Stars goalkeeper Hamza Muwonge who was making his debut was called upon to make countless saves denying his former pay masters the much dreaded maximum points on a day dominated by barren draws.
Only Sports Club Villa Jogoo who beat Soana 1-0 in Masaka got maximum points.
