KCCA secured an impressive 6-1 victory against Gaddafi, marking Coach Abdallah Mubiru’s first league win at the helm in a game played under the Lugogo floodlights.

The match was largely decided in the opening half as KCCA dominated, leading 5-0.

Despite Gaddafi’s improved display in the second half resulting in a consolation goal by Sharif Ssengendo, KCCA extended their lead with a late strike by Dominic Ayella.

Etienne Katenga set the tone with an 18th-minute opener, swiftly followed by Shaban Muhammad and Usama Arafat each securing a brace in the first half.

Katenga ignited the scoreline with a superb top-right corner finish after a dazzling run down the left flank to open proceedings.

KCCA doubled their lead through Shaban who capitalized on Mustafa Kizza’s cross with a powerful header.

Da Silva Cungulo assisted Shaban for the third goal, who skillfully found the net with a precise finish.

Usama’s goal came from inside the box, slotting the ball home after Katenga’s attempt was blocked.

Usama got his second, the fifth for KCCA before halftime, with his volley getting a deflection to elude a helpless Andrew Ssekandi in Gaddafi goal.

Gaddafi managed to pull one back through Ssengendo’s stunning long-range effort, after leaving defender Peter Magambo for dead in the 62nd minute.

Ayella completed the rout, scoring from a rebound after Said Mayanja’s shot hit the post in the 87th minute.

This crucial win, KCCA’s second of the season, propelled them to 14th place with 7 points, lifting them out of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Gaddafi, who have suffered the heaviest defeat this season, dropped to 10th place with 10 points after nine games.

What next – KCCA visit Mbarara City at Kakyeka on December 6 while Gaddafi will welcome UPDF a day later in Jinja.
