Buddo SS emerged boys’ football champions of the Brookside Federation of East Africa Secondary Schools Sports Associations (FEASSSA) games on Sunday.

They defeated hosts Lycee De Kigali (LDK) 5-3 on penalties, in a tense final at Ubworoherane Stadium in Musanze on Sunday.

Buddo goalkeeper Tonny Kyamela saved one penalty as team captain Samuel Kato composed himself to slot home the last of Buddo’s five kicks, to send the hundreds of Ugandans into wild cheers and runs across the stadium.

“We have worked hard for this title and our efforts have been rewarded. I have come a long way with my team and I thank the boys for the great effort because this was not an easy championship,” said Buddo SS coach Simon Peter Mugerwa.

The boys’ football final was the climax of the week long secondary schools games, that had started on Sunday last week, with teams from Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, battling in 13 disciplines of football, netball, volleyball, basketball, handball, hockey, rugby
7s, rugby 15s, table tennis, badminton, lawn tennis and athletics.

The Buddo-LDK final was preceded by the girls final between Uganda’s Kawempe Moslem and Kwale Girls from Kenya and Kwale emerged champions after beating Kawempe 1-0, a result Kawempe players and officals protested on rounds of unfair officiating by Rwandan referees.

But team captain Mariam Nakabugo won the MVP accolade.

Mukono High, Uganda’s other representatives in girls football, had finished third, after beating Rwanda’s GS Remera 2-1, while Blessed Sacrament Kimaanya finished fourth in boys’ football, after losing 2-1 to Kenya’s Kakamega.
