After master-minding Lweza’s 2-1 win over Vipers Sports Club on the International Women’s Day, veteran forward Geoffrey Sserunkuma dedicated the sublime strike to his better-half, Rashida Kyaligonza.
Sserunkuma, second half substitute scored a 94th minute winner to give Lweza the bragging rights in the explosive Entebbe road league derby.
I dedicate the goal to my wife, Rashida Kyaligonza. Scoring on women’s day is a plus.
I was prepared to score at any time even when the minutes were running out
Lweza F.C took the lead in the 69th minute through mid-season signing Sula Bagala.
The strike followed a ‘kindergarten’ goalkeeping error from custodian Ismail Watenga (playing for the first time after that troublesome CHAN 2016 hamstring injury) who granted Ndawula possession.
Ndawula thereafter laid the ball for an unmarked Bagala to tap into an empty net.
With the match destined for a climax, another goalkeeping blunder from the opposition side (Charles Lukwago) granted Vipers a corner.
Aggrey Madoi’s curler was converted into an empty net by Erisa Ssekisambu.
Then came Sserunkuma’s defining moment of the well attended match.
Well positioned, the towering 33 year old striker slotted into an empty net off Ndawula’s assist to bury off the game and grant Lweza the crucial three points in their desperate fight against the relegation monster
Sserunkuma, who also scored a similar goal at the 2016 CHAN finals against Zimbabwe is excited to maintain the scoring form;
When i was introduced, i expected to score. I never give up every-time i enter a football field of play. That is my job and i love to put the ball at the back of the net.
