Vipers SC beat ten man Wakiso Giants 5-0 to occupy the league log summit. The game was held this evening at St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.
Forward Yunus Ssebtanu scored four and one from Ceacer Manzoki to inspire Vipers to the second consecutive season win.
Vipers SC took an early lead through Yunus Ssentamu just 13 minutes into the game, slotting Milton Karisa’s ball past goalie Samson Kirya before he extended the lead to 2-0 after lashing onto another Milton Karisa’s effort in the 23rd minute.
After a short while, Congolese forward Ceaser Manzoki made it 3-0 for Vipers SC when he pounced on a rebound as Wakiso Giants’ defence proved to be too exposed.
34 minutes into the game, Wakiso Giants faced a huge blow when midfielder George Kaddu was shown matching orders for a second bookable offense.
Kaddu was shown his first yellow card for protesting a Ceaser Manzoki goal in the 25th which he claimed to be from offside situation.
Yunus Ssentamu register his hat-trick to make it 4-0 for Vipers SC in 61 minutes of play just 19 minutes after the break.
