Pilsner Super 8

Vipers 2 KCCA 0

Vipers beat 10-man KCCA 2-0 to win the Pilsner Super 8 competition on Sunday at Wankulukuku Stadium.

Fahad Bayo who joined Venoms from Zambia's Buildcon this month scored in both halves for Vipers to secure the club’s first Super 8 title.

Vipers who were taking part in the competition for the first time were difficult to breakdown down that’s to a defence marshalled by skipper Halid Lwaliwa.

The victory saw the Kitende-based side bag a cash prize of sh20m while KCCA took sh12m.

KCCA who were playing the final just two days after eliminating Namibia's African Stars 4-3 on aggregate in the CAF Champions League had defender John Revita sent off by centre referee Emmanuel Kiweewa following two bookable offences.

Despite the defeat, KCCA midfielder Allan Okello emerged as the top scorer with three goals.

Vipers' Fabien Mutumbora who conceded only one goal in the competition was voted best goalkeeper while URA's Said Kyeyune was named the best midfielder.

Ronald Otti from Mbarara City was voted the best defender.

Mbarara City and Onduparaka who finished third and fourth walked away with cash prizes of sh10m and sh8m respectively.

The teams from fifth to eight received sh5m (URA), sh4m (Tooro United) and sh3m (Proline).

KCCA will now take a two-day break before taking on Proline FC in the FUFA Super Cup.
