SUPL: Nsimbe score three times as BUL humiliate Busoga in Jinja derby
BUL Football Club bounced back to winning ways with a stellar performance at Kyabazinga stadium on Tuesday.
Ibrahim Nsimbe’s hat-trick, as well as goals from Musa Esenu and Richard Wandyaka earned BUL FC a resounding 5-0 win over Busoga United.
Nsimbe put BUL 1-0 and 2-0 up before Esenu made it 3-0 before half-time. The former then got his hat-trick and our fourth before Wandyaka wrapped up the win to make it 5-0 early in the second half.
After a fair opening 20 minutes for both teams, BUL broke the deadlock in the 24th minute through Nsimbe who teased a defender and then left goalkeeper Michael Nantamu down for dead before he shot in an empty net.
The forward was on target again five minutes later as he picked a pass from Pascal Ngobi to score from inside the box.
After several attempts, Esenu finally got on the scoresheet when he made it 3-0 for the Eastern Giants on the stroke of halftime with a clean header at the near post.
Busoga United rarely threatened Saidi Keni’s goal in the opening period, with Anthony Mayanja having a free kick cleared and then the captain getting flagged for offside in the 37th minute at 2-0 summing up the away side’s opening 45.
With BUL in a commanding 3-0 first-half lead, they almost made it four shortly after the break but Simon Peter Oketch was judged offside by the first assistant referee before he could launch a shot.
But it only got better for the Eastern Giants as Nsimbe got his hat-trick goal in the 55th minute with a simple tap in after some decent work from Esenu and Oketch.
Then the scoring party finally came to a stop but after Wandyaka registering his presence on the scoresheet when he powered in a header from close range off Hilary Onek’s conor kick from the left on the hour mark.
Ibrahim Kazindula also tried his luck from distance on several occasions but his swerving shots missed the target on all the attempts.
BUL FC’s points tally now stands at 17 from nine games which lifts them to third on the table, and their next engagement will be away to Tooro United on December 10.
