Kitara FC was today (Saturday) thumped by Wakiso Giants FC 2-7 at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium as the Purple Sharks continued their fine run of form.
The Purple Sharks who have now gone six competitive matches without tasting defeat, were dominant from the first to last whistle in what is arguably their easiest victory of the season.
A brace by Viane Ssekajugo and a goal each from Joshua Lubwama, Edward Satulo, Gadafi Wahab, Rahmat Ssenfuka and Amos Muwonge did the trick on the day.
Substitute Patrick Kusemererwa and Edson Agondeze scored the two consolation goals for the Kabaleega boys: Kitara FC- the Pride of Bunyoro.
As early as the 12th minute, Lubwama opened the scoring from the penalty spot, converting after Ssekajugo was brought down in the area by Philip Ssempira.
After Wakiso missing a host of chances, Satulo rifled in a second goal after Kitara failed to deal with Wahab’s corner.
The third came on 40 minutes through Ssekajugo who pounced onto a lazy pass by Ssempira to slot past the hapless Kitara’s Ivan Akena.
By halftime, Kitara looked like a side that was well beaten.
However, Wakiso were not done yet as Wahab pounced on another defensive mistake to net the fourth on 57 minutes.
The fifth came from a brilliant team move that involved both Atendele Gerige and Pius Kaggwa with the latter setting up Ssenfuka who put the ball in the back of the net.
Ssekajugo who had missed several chances to double his tally finally did so as he headed in, from close range, an Amos Muwonge cross to put Wakiso 6-0 up.
With nine minutes to play, Muwonge who replaced Frank Ssebufu, mid-way the second half, dinked a ball over the Kitara custodian to score the 7th.
Two minutes of madness ensured Kitara gets two goals in the game.
First Kusemererwa robbed Kirya of the ball to slot into an empty net before Agondeze rifled in from close range.
Wakiso must have felt a bit unsatisfied as they missed several clear-cut chances before conceding two lousy goals in the end.
Victory sees Wakiso move to 30 points from 24 games. They, however, stay in 9th position but climb 10 points away from the relegation zone.
For Kitara, they stay rooted at the foot of the table with just 10 points.
In their next fixtures, Kitara hosts MYDA on Tuesday while Wakiso are at home to BUL FC on the same day.
