“We did not lose hope after falling 2-1 at half time. We got our chances but did not concentrate enough. We knew that we could win the game and remained working hard so that we could win the game in the second half” Ssenyonjo who was also named the pilsner man of the match told the club media after the match.

 

He spoke of the delight that comes with scoring goals, an impetus that will push him to work harder.

“I feel good having scored four goals in a single match. I want to report focused and maintain the scoring spree even at the upcoming CECAFA U-23 senior challenge cup. I feel proud to have been picked out among the players to represent my country and I expect to perform well” Ssenyonjo added.

Andrew Kawooya and Charles Lwanga scored the other two goals for 10 man KCCA in a comprehensive victory where Denis Iguma was red carded with a quarter an hour to play.

Kawooya perfectly lobbed the goalkeeper for his first goal in the very first game started at KCCA.

Nathan Oloro and Vicent Kasoki’s goals that had given Kitara a 2-1 lead by the mandatory half way break were turned into mere consolation goals.

By the time the league was abruptly halted (due to Coronavirus pandemic), KCCA had managed 48 points off 27 matches, 10 points adrift the leaders Express.
