Vipers SC Takes Away Express’ Championship Crown

Friday saw the end of Express FC’s reign as league champions after badly losing to Vipers SC at the St. Mary’s Stadium in kitende. The game ended in a 3-0 victory in favor of Vipers.

The first half brace from Yunus Ssentamu and Bright Anukani’s second half turned out to be all the Venoms needed. They humbled the Red Eagles who remained in the 6th position with 42 points.

Sentamu put the hosts in the lead after twenty-five minutes run-in behind John Byamukama to slot home a decent Hilary Mukundane cross.

He then doubled the lead in the 34th minute with Mukundane delivering the ball again. Anukani put the icing on the cake with a deflected shot in the 60th minute to earn a well-deserved win for the new champions.

The fifth league title means Vipers SC overtake URA to become the fourth most successful club in Uganda’s league history behind SC Villa (16), KCCA (13) and Express (7).

With four games to play, Roberto Oliviera’s men will now focus on breaking their own record of most points (69) in a 30-game league format they set in 2015.

They are currently on 64 points with 12 still to play for. They will also have plenty of time to focus on the Stanbic Uganda Cup where they are in the semis alongside Booma, BUL FC, and Mbarara City.
