KCCA FC whip Nyamityobora FC to go top of the UPL table

If playing on a Sunday comes with a special blessing, then 12-time league champions KCCA Football Club clearly enjoyed that blessing as they whipped league debutants Nyamityobora Football Club to go top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

Uganda Cranes darling striker Patrick Kaddu opened the scoring for the Kasasiro Boys with a goal in the 4th minute to set the temple too for the visitors.

Captain Timothy Awany doubled the lead for the hosts when he converted from the penalty spot while Allan Okello managed to get his name onto the scoresheet just three minutes to halftime as coach Mike Mutebi’s side went 3-0 up before recess.

In the second half, perhaps the slightly forgotten to some, the industrious Suleiman Mike Mutyaba bagged a brace with strikes in the 62 and 70th minutes respectively, in between which Dada Juma had picked a consolation for the Ankole side in the 66th minute.

Jackson Nuda put the icing on the cake with a goal of his own, making it 6-1 in the 89th minute as the 2016/2017 champions moved top of the UPL table on a better goal difference as compared to a second-placed Vipers SC, with both sides on 18 points from 8 games.
