SC Vipers 4-0 Kansai Plascon
SC Vipers eased past Big League side Kansai Plascon in a Stanbic Uganda Cup game played at St Mary’s Stadium Kitende.
The Venoms won 4-0 to reach the round of 16, ending Kansai’s run that had seen the Big league outfit oust Ndejje University FC at the round of 32.
Desmond Kyobe scored in his own net and Halid Lwaliwa doubled the advantage before halftime. Abraham Ndugwa scored a brace in the second stanza to seal a routine victory.
Coach Nam Ouma made changes to his starting eleven with stars Fabien Mutombora, Taddeo Lwanga, Mzee Dan Sserunkuma, Moses Waiswa among others, sitting out.
However, the second string side proved too good against Kansai Plascon who struggled to retain possession on the artificial turf.
The first chance fell to Tito Okello but the forward tapped over the bar off Abraham Ndugwa’s delivery.
Vipers opened the scoreline when Desmond Kyobe scored in his own net, thanks to a beautiful work from Innocent Wafula in the 17th minute.
The Venoms continued to press forward and cane close to doubling their advantage but Ndugwa was denied shooting space.
Lwaliwa made it 2-0 when he fired in after the visitors failed to clear their lines from the corner before the half hour mark.
The best chances for Kansai Plascon fell to Usman Mutumba – The forward failed to meet Brian Oyuka’s low cross before his effort a minute later was kept out by Derrick Ochan.
Masiko shot wide after good build up that involved Ndugwa and Duncan Sseninde at the restart.
Ndugwa made it three with a beautiful curl from outside the box in the 54th minute before adding the fourth, his brace, when he cut inside to score at the far low post in the 75th minute.
