St. Mary’s Kitende (Team A) registered a commanding 3-0 victory against Dynamic SS in the USSA Elite Championship at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on Friday.
The hosting team, St Mary’s Secondary School, Kitende started on a high earning an early goal through Faizul Tumwine who placed the back of the net off John Kokas Alou’s chip.
Kitende nearly extended the lead through captain Andrew Kawoya’s long-range shot but it missed the target by inches.
Moments later Kitende extended their lead by forward Tumwine who sealed a personal brace.
Kitende’s second goal was such a beauty to watch. Kawoya engineered an attack before he released Enock Luyima on the left flank, he laid a low cross before Kawoya made a zero pass which was completed by Tumwine from close range.
Dynamic SS nearly pulled one back through Amos Ayikowa but his well-taken freekick parried off the goal post after beating custodian Ronald Kiberu.
In the second stanza, Dynamic added pace and it looked like they would bounce back but they were poor in the final third despite the numerous chances created.
Second-half substitute Brian Olega missed a clear cut chance after going past Dynamic custodian Shafick Olega but his resultant effort rattled off the goal post.
Habibu Oloya made a mazy run past Dynamic defence but Olega rushed off the line to handle matters.
Dynamic hit the goal post the second time through a well-taken freekick by Alex Yiga after curling past the wall.
With a few minutes to play, Olega placed the ball in the back of the net after Dynamic defence thought they had made an offside trap.
Kitende registered three points and a clean sheet at their home ground.
