Toyota Buffaloes have now won four in four this season, preserving a secret advantage in the title race. A first week walkover in Lira, narrow victory over Sadolin Mongers, 35-10 against Mutoni Warriors and the latest, Saturday’s thriller at Kyadondo rugby grounds that cemented four consecutive losses for G4S Pirates.
Toyota Buffaloes clearly bossed the game and often pushed forward to the try line. Kevin Mukasa had the crowd at the edge of their seats in the first half scoring tries alongside Eric Kasita’s, Ezekiel Okol and Phillip Pariyo’s conversion.
Second half only had an early Kevin Makmot penalty for G4S Pirates, succeeded by a Buffaloes’ James Odong try extending the score to Buffaloes 30 G4S Pirates 09. Phillip Pariyo, James Odongo and Kevin Mukasa came through again,with tries each and two conversions sending the game into a full time score, Toyota Buffaloes 49 G4S Pirates 9.
Eventually, it could be remembered as the day when Pirates were ‘trampled by the herd of Buffaloes’ with Kevin Mukasa’s brilliance of the day, that left pirates defense in trails of disappointment,worth Nile Special Man of the match.
