Kampala – Results from the Philip Omondi between KCCA and Vipers makes it possible to believe there is first time for everything indeed. After enjoying three quarters of the season unbeaten at the newly revamped Stadium, finally Mike Mutebi and his boys have had a pinch of what it feels like to lose at home when Vipers’ Geofrey Wasswa and Tony Odur’s goals completed a comeback that nullified Sserunkuma’s goal and gave The Venoms Victory.
Every notable, big or Tom Dick and Harry that came their way were wiped out of the surface of the artificial turf as if God was wiping sinful generation of man in Noah’s era. Including inter-continental competitors like Al-Masry, and the historically hugest in which they silenced the mighty Onduparaka with seven goals to zero in the presence of their Mummies, Daddies and dearest hence making us believe beating them at home meant a team has to build an artificial turf that provoked the population sing usual chorus “Gavumenti etuyambye”.
With the exception of club Patron Lawrence Mulindwa who hired a colored Coach by the names Miguel De Costa all the way from where Christiano Ronaldo hails ‘Portugal’ and built a class apart Stadium in Ugandan capacity named St. Mary’s without artificial turf to undo the perception that rooted itself in the hearts of footballers, spectators, coaches, journalist and or the entire soccer fraternity in Uganda.
As Sserunkuma is threatening to be to the golden boy with 18 goals after scoring for KCCA at 15 minutes, Vipers responded with an equalizer from Odur at 64 minutes’ as a results of defensive gap and defender Wasswa finished writing the history with a winning goal at 71 minutes. KCCA now loses at Lugogo for the first time after winning 11 and drawing 1 however still remains on top of the table with goal difference.
The boys in Yellow will be visiting another tough side Express in Wankulukuku on Friday 28th April 2017. On the other side, excited Miguel’s boys ‘Vipers’ which seats 3rd on the log will be hosting 4th place URA with confidence on Saturday 29th April 2017 at the St. Mary’s Stadium Kitende.
