*Vipers 2-0 KCCA FC
Vipers’ striker Fahad Bayo notched a double on his debut to help Vipers beat KCCA FC 2-0 in a FUFA Pilsner Super Eight finals at Betway Muteesa II Stadium at Wankulukuku.
Vipers take home Sh20M while KCCA FC who had John Revita sent off late in the second half, bags Sh12M as prize money.
The striker who joined the Venoms from Buildcon taunted KCCA FC defence with power and pace before nodding in from Abram Ndugwa’s well weighed freekick in the 11th minute.
He later doubled his advantage when he tapped in from close range from substitute Brian Nkuubi’s low assist from the right flank.
The striker also had his header kept out by Maliyamungu and his freekick was pushed out before he paved way for Denis Mwemezi.
KCCA FC, playing 24 hours after their CAF Champions League qualifier against Namibia’s African Stars, looked rusty on the day.
Erisa Ssekisambu had his header ruled out for offside at the stroke of halftime, Allan Okello went for power but his effort went far and wide as KCCA FC tried to mount a challenge.
Jackson Nunda nodded in Herbert Achai’s way but the latter arrived late after goalkeeper Mutombora collected out of danger to deny the garbage collectors.
Revita was cautioned in the 82nd minute before receiving marching orders from referee Emmanuel Kiweewa in the 90th minute of the game for another foul on Substitute Tito Okello
To reach this stage, the Venoms had beaten Proline FC and Mbarara City FC on quarter and semis respectively. KCCA beat Wakiso 2-0 in the quarter final before eliminating Onduparaka FC.
It should be noted that KCCA FC won the inaugural edition when they beat Onduparaka FC 2-0 at Wankulukuku.
