Sunday’s Result

Vipers SC 8-1 BUL FC

In the end, this wasn’t so much of a stroll like a whitewash.

Vipers whitewashed Bul FC in a fashion which was as brutal as it was devastating.

The Venoms beat Bul FC into pieces to win the 2021 Stanbic Uganda Cup title. By full time, the Jinja-based side couldn’t wait to be put out of their misery.

Vipers, who became the first team in history to score five goals in the final of the Uganda Cup, secured a 4-0 first half lead before scoring a similar number after resumption.

There was a downpour at the Fufa Technical centre in Njeru but the real rain was the goals that kept pouring into the Bul net.

Yunus Sentamu struck four times to take home the match ball, Cesar Manzoki added a brace to complement the strikes of Milton Karisa and Livingstone Mulondo. The latter opened the floodgates in the third minute.

Hamis Tibita’s consolation in the 73rd minute was a footnote on a day when Vipers played like Samba Boys.

The St Mary’s Kitende-based side will start as one of the favourites for the league title and it was easy to say why given how they distributed the onion bag and played with a new-found confidence and style under coach Roberto Olivieira aka Robertinho.

Goalkeeper Fabian Mutombora was voted best goalkeeper, Mulondo best defender, Bobosi Byaruhanga best midfielder and Manzoki top scorer.

The four, who are all from Vipers, took home trophies and 40 inch LG flatscreens.

It was only Vipers’ second Uganda Cup title in history after the one they won in 2016.

Vipers will receive Shs50m for winning the trophy while Bul FC get Shs20m.
