A well taken hat trick from towering forward Fahad Tooko was the major highlight as premier side, Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU) brushed aside Kigezi regional side, Nyarusiza Football Club 0-5 in a one sided encounter played at Seseme play grounds in Kisoro district on Tuesday.
Team captain, Martin Mpuuga opened the scoring chart with a well timed header as early as the 7th minute off Muzamiru Mutyaba’s curling effort from a free kick 30 yards from goal.
Man of the match, Tooko netted his first on the day at the half hour mark before doubling his personal tally 3 minutes later with a wonderful lob over the advancing goal keeper, Brian Muhwezi.
The half time score line read 0-3 in favour of the visitors and they energized their efforts as soon as the second stanza of the game resumed.
Nyarusiza F.C Starting XI
Tooko completed his hat trick with a perfectly drilled penalty after he was illegally felled to the ground inside the 18 yards goal mark by defender, Herbert Nsabiyera.
Striker, Dan Nsubuga a wasteful element on the day eventually had reason to smile as his goal bound effort was deflected by defender, Fred Nyozima.
Second half substitute, Rashid Kiyini, who had replaced Tooko with 20 minutes left on the clock was unlucky not registered his name in the referee’s books for scoring as he twice missed from close range.
