KCCA 6-0 Masavu
Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) defending champions KCCA resoundingly bounced back from defeat to rivals SC Villa by thumping Masavu 6-0 at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo on Saturday.
A second half brace from substitute Tito Okello and a goal each from Derrick Nsibambi, Samuel Ssekamate, Allan Kateregga and Patrick Kaddu were enough for manager Mike Mutebi’s men to register the season’s biggest win.
The victory moves KCCA up to fourth on the 16- team log with 13 points, three behind leaders Police.
The six goals also mean KCCA are the highest scoring team in the league so far with 15. They have conceded five.
Defeat for Masavu, their sixth in eight matches, keeps them rooted at the bottom of the table with just four points.
KCCA came into this one on the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of SC Villa and had to respond against the league’s weakest team so far.
They duly did. Kateregga was impressive, the ‘dancing rasta’ awing fans with his energetic runs and dribbling skills.
Apart from being on the score-sheet himself, Kateregga was involved in all three goals before the break.
His pinpoint cross from the right was headed home by Nsibambi after just nine minutes.
It was Kateregga who took charge of matters again, beating his marker before crossing low for Sekamatte to slot in his first goal for KCCA in his second appearance.
It was now time for dreadlocked Kateregga to put his name on the scoreboard, the forward interplaying with Sadam Juma before driving home the third for KCCA on 36 minutes.
Sekamatte was stretchered off two minutes to the break after he pulled a muscle and was replaced by Okello.
Full back Musatafa Kizza was on hand to immediately help Okello to his first goal and KCCA’s fourth.
Kizza continued to torment Masavu from the left and with 20 minutes left on the clock, he again found Okello, who controlled before shooting past Ali Kiggundu in Masavu’s goal.
Nsibambi was preplaced by Kaddu late on, the latter putting the icing on the already made cake with KCCA’s sixth on 85 minutes when he connected home Kizza’s cross.
