Kawadwa surges forward past a Kirinya Jinja S. S defender.
Joshua Kawadwa was the unlikely hero for Bright stars when he came off the bench to win all 3 points for his team.
The game was destined to another stalemate after Nelson Senkatuka had cancelled out Musa Esenu’s 4th minute strike, but Kawadwa had other thoughts when he timely tapped in Nelson Senkatuka’s free kick rebounded effort off Tom Ikara 12 minutes to full time.
Bright stars have now extended their home unbeaten record against the Jinja based teams. They have now lifted themselves up the table to 3rd on 6 points after 4 rounds of play.
Stand in coach Paul Kiwanuka was thankful to his team for the great effort they exhibited after falling to an early scare from Musa Esenu’s strike. He said,
“I am proud of what the boys have done today that even when we fell to a goal down, they continued believing in themselves and they fought back to win our first game of the season. We are glad that we go into the international break on a high. “
Kirinya Jinja SS suffered their first defeat of the season and they remain on 5 points and lie 6th on the table but head coach Charles Ayiekho still insists that his team are on track to achieve their target of finishing in the top 5 positions,
” I think we donated to them the second goal, we lost concentration and my defender committed a silly mistake by failing to clear the ball, but in the overall play I am very happy with my boys that they are improving day by day.
” I am happy that Musa Esenu got on the scoresheet which is a big positive for us because it’s going to boost his confidence to score many. We are still on track on attaining our target of finishing in the top 5 positions.
