KCCA outclass SC Villa to maintain grip at the summit

DANIEL NSUBUGA

KCCA 4-2 SC Villa

12 time winners KCCA returned to winning ways when they put record winners SC Villa to the sword at the Star times stadium.

The much anticipated match lived to the billing after producing six goals to the thrill of the fully packed small arena.

The first 45 minutes produced less action with both teams employing a hand brake-on approach for fear of being exposed.

SC Villa were presented with the first clear cut opportunity of the evening but the lethargic Pius Wangi failed to make it count when he cut inside on the right wing but his shot went straight into the hands of Charles Lukwago on 9 minutes.

The move awoke KCCA’s attack and they responded by making several attacks which yielded a corner which Mustafa Kizza headed on the goal post.

At this moment the game had started to flow and a goal was imminent for either side, it was eventually KCCA who broke the deadlock when Mike Mutyaba cooley glided the ball past side Keni with 3 minutes left to the break.

Returning for the second period, Bamweyana and SC Villa changed approach in search for an equaliser but they were immediately made to pay when Mutyaba’s immaculate layoff met Mustafa Kizza who buried it in the top right corner to extend KCCA’s lead on 52 minutes.

Bamweyana withdrew the ineffective Emmanuel Kalyowa for young prodigy Charles Lwanga to try chasing the game.

The visitors were exposed the more and former player Allan Kyambadde converted from close to six yards after a string of passes from Allan Okello, Mike Mutyaba and Muzamir Mutyaba.

The final nail in SC Villa’s coffin was hit by Allan Okello who converted from the spot after being brought down by Asuman Alishe in the forbidden area.

SC Villa ensured they were not going down without a fight and in the 77th minute, substitute Charles Lwanga pulled one back.

Moments later, Ambrose Kirya pulled another one for SC Villa to create a nervy ending for the hosts but their resurgence came a little to late to warrant a result.

None of the bottom six teams managed to pick a point on match day 22

KCCA FC are now seated firm at the top with 45 points and a three point cushion over Vipers. SC Villa remain 12th after all their fellow strugglers failed to pick any points

The two will return to action on Wednesday March 6th against Tooro United and Kirinya Jinja S.S respectively. SC Villa vs Kirinya will be played under flood lights at 7:30 pm
