Ssentongo’s goal enough, Kyetume move out of the relegation zone


Veteran striker Robert Ssentongo scored the only goal for Kyetume as they edged Proline FC 1-0 at the Startimes stadium, Lugogo to move out of relegation

Robert Ssentongo headed in from close range in the 13th minute of the game to give Kyetume an early lead.

Vincent came close to doubling Kyetume’s lead but Shatif Magoola stood firm in goal and paved the ball away to the corner to deny Kyetume FC.

Joel Mutakubwa played a big role when he denied Hamis Kiiza and Joseph Mandela from finding the back of his net ,just for the first half to end in Kyetume’s lead.

The best chance in the second half fell to Mustafa Mujuzi but the flying defender’s hard taken shot managed to hit the upright.

Kyetume’s win meant that they completed a double against Proline FC. Robert Ssentongo also netted in the first round at Namboole to grant the Slaughterers a hard fought home win.
