MATCHS DU JOUR 13
KCC FC rediscovered their winning touch to stop Vipers SC 1-0 in a 2022/2023 Uganda Premier League match played last Saturday at their Philip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.
Brian Mato nodded in the lone goal that made the difference 6 minutes into the match after picking a neat cross from Allan Okello.
Fresh from a 3-1 away defeat to Arua Hill FC, coach Morley Byekwaso’s team was not ready to drop more points in front of their fans.
KCCA FC kept pushing upfront and creating scoring opportunities with Okello showing his good game awareness and skill. Vipers SC skipper Milton Karisa and Yunus Ssentamu kept pushing forward but failed to find the goals.
“This is a very important win for us because we defeated the defending champions,” said KCCA FC’s coach Byekwaso.
Vipers SC who ejected DR Congo’s TP Mazembe to qualify for the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League stage have only managed to pick one point from the two League matches they have played.

Record 16 time Uganda Premier League winners SC Villa are second on the log with 7 points, while Arua Hill FC are third with six points after winning all their two matches. KCCA FC are in 4th place, while Vipers SC are placed in 13th place.
