URA Lifts First Super Cup

ambulance Arial, sans-serif; padding: 0px; margin: 14px 0px;”>Alex isabirye’s side scored two goals in the first half before completing the rout after recess to take home Shs1.5m. Express pocketed Shs0.5m.

Sam Ssenkoomi, Moses Ali Feni and Saidi Kyeyune were on the score sheet for URA as Moses Basena began his career as Express coach on a losing note. The Super Cup is played between league winners and Uganda Cup victors.

Ssenkoomi put URA ahead when he headed in Simeon Masaba’s corner after 10 minutes before Feni latched onto Oscar Agaba’s pass to beat Mulindwa Muwonge in goal for the tax collectors’ second before the break.

Express did give it a go in the second half with Frank striker Kalanda keeping Allan Munaaba and Derrick Walulya at bay.

But that Kyeyune’s goal for URA’s third after Muwonge had stopped Robert Ssentongo’s effort ensured the tax collectors started their new season with a comprehensive victory.

“Of course victory, and a 3-0 victory over Express is always something big,” said Isabirye after the match, adding, “But there are mistakes we committed and those are some of the areas we must go back and address.”

Express’ Basena said: “All three goals were give aways but there are positives we can pick from the performance.

“Of course my boys are all from lower divisions and some of the play against a very experienced URA side was encouraging.
