2014/15 Pepsi National Beach Soccer League:
Quarter-Finals: Nkumba Select 4-3 YMCA
After a dismissal performance in the regular season, last year’s losing finalists, Nkumba Select have picked up the pace at a stage where it matters most.
The Entebbe based outfit pipped YMCA 4-3 in the first of the four quarter final matches played at Lido Beach on Sunday.
Uganda Sand Cranes deputy captain, Dougals Muganga scored a brace before fellow teammates at the national team, Yasser Mugerwa and the lanky striker, Roch Somoka got one apiece and seal the last four slot.
YMCA fought gallantly as team captain, Derrick Tekkwo endured the fatigue from the Uganda Kobs Kigali trip to score a brace with teammate at Kira Young in the national league (grass football) getting the other goal.
Nkumba Select team manager, Isa ‘Chimbonda’ Assimwe reasons this is the right time his team has picked up momentum.
We have been struggling in the league but at this stage we are like a poisonous snake seeking for its prey
