Birungi stars in KCC win

Michael Birungi grabbed a brace as reigning champions KCC thumped Soana 4-0 in the Uganda Premier League (UPL) at Lugogo on Tuesday to close the gap on leaders Vipers to four points.

Herman Wasswa, arguably man of the match, netted the other before Derrick Nsibambi completed the rout.

The victory saw coach Abdallah Mubiru’s side leap-frog SC Villa into second place to move to within four points of leaders Vipers, who are on 31.

Defeat for Soana, who were coming off a 4-1 drubbing of Rwenshama last week, saw them stay third from bottom on nine points.

Birungi gave the hosts a deserved lead on 10 minutes, connecting Wasswa’s pass before completing his brace six minutes later when he chipped an on-rushing Soana keeper Godwin Bbule.

Wasswa made it 3-0 for the hosts to go into half time with the game almost wrapped up. The champions created fewer chances after recess but still managed to put in one more.

Wasswa beat Misi Katende on the ball inside the 16 yard area before setting up Nsibambi for the fourth.
