Madondo stars as 10-man Kirinya halt Vipers’ perfect start


Kirinya JSS 2-2 Vipers

Joel Madondo scored in each half as Kirinya Jinja SS held Vipers to a 2-2 draw at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.

The match saw Kirinya play with a man less for more than an hour but that didn’t not deter them from ending Vipers’ 100% record start.


Kenyan forward Noah Wafula had put Vipers in an early lead with a long range strike in the 5th minute but Madondo levelled matters a minute to the half hour mark.

Kirinya JSS goalkeeper Didi Muhammad was given matching orders after fouling Wafula in an unsporting manner 5 minutes to the mandatory halftime break.

A penalty was subsequently awarded to Vipers and Dan Muzeyi Serunkuma flawlessly sent Emmanuel Rubangkene the wrong way to restore Vipers’ lead.

Madondo then tied the contest once again with only 2 minutes played in the second half with a strike that takes his tally to 6 goals this season.

Vipers brought on Brian Nkuubi, Halid Lwaliwa and Joseph Janjali for Rahmat Senfuka, Abraham Ndugwa and Dan Muzeyi Serunkuma but couldn’t change the scoreline.

Besides goalkeeper Rubangkene who came on for Yusuf Abatoo, Charles Ayiekoh also brought on Joram Kirya for Douglas Muganga and Fred Amaku for David Bagoole.

The results keeps Vipers on the summit of the log with 13 points garnered from 5 games whereas Kirinya JSS sit 10th with only 5 points.

Next on card for Vipers will be a tie against rivals KCCA on Saturday 3rd November at Kitende while Kirinya will next play against Bright Stars on the same day.
