Twelve-time Uganda Premier League champions Kampala Capital City Authority Football Club (KCCA FC) beat Onduparaka FC by 2-0 to win the inaugural Pilsner Super 8 tournament.
Two first-half goals from sensational midfielder Ibrahim Sadam Juma and youngster Allan Okello were enough for the Mike Mutebi-coached side to claim victory over the Caterpillars at Muteesa II Memorial Stadium, Wankulukuku.
On the big day, the Kasasiro Boys looked the better side with striker Patrick Kaddu netting one that was disallowed for a foul on goalkeeper Nicholas Ssebwato. Samad Juma then finally broke the deadlock with 33 minutes on the clock from a well taken free kick that followed an infringement on Patrick Kaddu.
Just three minutes later, Allan Okello proved his worth as he got his name to the scoreboard before eventually being named as Man of the Match.
Second half changes from either side didn’t yield much despite Onduparaka coming back a much better side. Coach Asaph Mwebaze withdrew Abel Eturude and Simba Sibir for Nicholas Kagaba and Richard Ayiko respectively while Gift Ali and Muzamir Mutyaba were introduced for Patrick Kaddu and Lawrence Bukenya respectively on the KCCA side.
KCCA FC won the trophy, taking home a cash prize of 10 million shilling while the losing finalists commiserated with 5 million. SC Villa and Nyamitryobora FC, the two losing semi-finalists bagged 3.5 million each with the other tournament participants taking 2 million apiece.
