Young Africans SC 0-2 Vipers SC

As we continue our preparations ahead of a long season, we played and beat Tanzanian giants, Young Africans SC 2-0 at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium on Saturday.

The match also marked the end of the hosts’ “Wiki Ya Mwananchi Day” for 2022.

Milton Karisa and Bright Anukani netted in either half to ensure the Venoms push further the winning run in Pre-Season.

We got off to a flying start and found the net within 26 seconds through Karisa, after a clean through ball from Yunus Sentamu.

The larger part of the first half after the goal was cagey as both sides struggled to create clear-cut goal-scoring opportunities.

Early in the second stanza, Yanga nearly equalised through substitute Aziz Ki but, our new goalkeeper Alfred Macumu Mudekereza brilliantly denied him, keeping matters at 1-0.

Later, substitute Anukani stole the headlines as he netted our second directly from a corner-kick and into the net.

How We Lined Up:

Alfred Macumu Mudekereza (GK), Halid Lwaliwa (C), Ashraf Mandela, Isa Mubiru, Livingstone Mulondo, Siraje Ssentamu, Bobosi Byaruhanga, Najib Yiga, Milton Karisa, Yunus Sentamu

Substitutions: Fabien Mutombora (GK), Denis Kiggundu (GK), Hilary Mukundane, Disan Galiwango, Olivier Osomba, Abubakar Lawal, Bright Anukani, Karim Watambala, Cesar Manzoki.
