Our Stanbic Uganda Cup journey comes to an end

2022-04-25 02:45:33

Sam Ssenyonjo struck late but only a consolation as we bowed out of the Stanbic Uganda Cup at the quarter final stage after losing 3-1 to Vipers.

Yunus Sentamu’s double and Bobosi Byaruhanga goal condemned us to defeat for the first time in this season’s competition.

The lads started well and could have gone ahead but Moses Aliro was denied by the cross bar in the 10th minute before his cross cum shot missed target by inches.

“The difference was that they were clinical when they got chance and we weren’t,” said Coach Alex Gitta.

“It’s unfortunate that we didn’t achieve our set target of playing at least five games in the competition but we shall recharge and hopefully do better next season.”
