STARTIMES UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE
Vipers SC 3-0 Express FC
We clinched our fifth StarTimes Uganda Premier League trophy after beating Express FC 3-0 at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on Friday.
Roberto Oliveira’s Venoms cruised to their fifth league title with zest and aplomb – and had the luxury of sparing four games.
Two first half goals from live-wire forward Yunus Sentamu on 26th and 34th minutes and a thumping finish from midfielder Bright Anukani in the second half took Vipers to 64 points from 26 matches.
Against James Odoch’s Express, the champions elect exhibited the gulf in class between them and the chasing pack, bossing possession and punishing all the visitors mistakes.
Express rarely threatened to bite while the Venoms bayed for their blood until the last whistle.
Sentamu’s brace to take his goal tally to 13 goals – three adrift of leading marksman and teammate Ceser Manzoki.
League winners in 2010, 2015, 2018, 2020 and now 2022, Vipers are set to turn their focus on the Stanbic Uganda Cup semifinals to fulfill the double dream.
And while the long chapter of this season has been marked by ups and downs, this trophy will forever remain a landmark in the great history of Vipers SC. And the season is not over yet. Our 2021/22 Uganda Champions will finish their campaign with four more matches, starting with a trip to Arua to face Onduparaka FC next Tuesday.
Clinching the title at home was the icing on the cake as the jubilant fans chanted and partied till late.
