Kampala- Livingstone Kabone Messi helps Onduparaka beat Gor Mahia two goals to nil. After Several attempts on target by the visiting team of which Toha Rashid “Per” was an agent of salvation, a minute before an additional time in the first half was added, Gadafi Gadinho had a rebounded super free kick that the 18 years old Messi took advantage of by tapping it into the net giving the caterpillars the lead.
Into the second half, Gasper “the rock” got a red card in an unusual way which the referee seems to have given because of intentional time wastage however that didn’t weaken Onduparaka, a few minutes later, Livinstone got the ball and passed it Toko, as he re-positioned towards the eighteen yards of the opponent to receive a pass from Toko, he penetrated inside overwhelming a defender and dodged the goal keeper to be left with an empty net hence putting the ball in the net doubling the home-side lead comfortably.
This particular win gives onduparaka more right to be called the “Giant killer” as their massacre against giants has not stopped against KCCA, Sc Villa and Vipers but extended to the mighty East African giants. This could as well bring into question if it’s wiser to consider the Westnile side as East African giants? In an interview held by Soccer256.com with some fans, they endorsed the fact that their club deserves the consideration. This is what one of them had to say,” we beat the Kenyan champions who are big in East Africa and sensibly that makes us big in the region.”
The International friendly had helped to prepare both teams for the beginning of the second half of the season in their respective leagues. Proline hosts Onduparaka in a return league next week on Wednesday at 4:30 pm at the Philip Omondi stadium. This will be the second time the teams will face each other in life time however the last time they played, Onduparaka survived loosing to the Lugogo side in a one all draw at the Greenlight stadium after Agau Rashid netted an equalizer the end of the game.
