KCCA edge Paidha to win first ever double

  • Paidha Black Angels 0-2 KCCA

KCCA ended a long wait for a domestic double with a Uganda Cup final 2-0 win over Paidha Black Angels at Green Light stadium, Arua.

Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambi were the heroes on the day scoring in either half to hand Mike Mutebi’s side a deserved victory.

Fresh from winning the Cranes maximum points in Cape Verde, Sserunkuma put KCCA in the lead after nine minutes to send the travelling fans into frenzy but the goal silenced the FUFA Big League side’s fans.

It looked as though a massacre was on card but the West Nile side held on as the Kasasiro went into the change rooms at half time just 1-0 up.

But the cushion was extended in the 59th minute when Nsibambi got at the end of Denis Okot’s long ball to slot home past the advancing Paidha Black Angels goalkeeper.

The Kasasiro now truly got control of proceedings with Isaac Kirabira replacing Muzamiru Mutyaba in the middle of the pack, Denis Rukundo also came on for the ageless Vincent Kayizzi but earlier, Habib Kavuma had replaced Paul Musamali who had already been booked.

The score line remained unchanged despite a late surge from Hussein Kheri’s charges and the final whistle meant KCCA won the Uganda Cup, and their first double in history.

Other double winners

The reigning premier league champions now join rivals SC Villa and Express who have won a league and domestic double on six and one occasion respectively.
