The current trend of scoring goals at the Wakiso Region Copa schools football qualifiers spells out two contrasting scenarios.

First, it is a case for weakened defenses or explicit creativeness vis-à-vis sharpness of the midfield and forward players as they seek to break down ‘Berlin Walls’ to score the much needed goals.

To go with the latter, it brings special smiles across many of ardent football followers to witness free dribbling players with excellent shooting abilities as they score at will.

Buddo Secondary School has so far scored the most goals 11-0 against a hap-less Kisubi Mapeera side during a Thursday morning game played at Kisubi Seminary ground.

Saddam Masereka scored four individual goals in the result. Peter Mukaaya and John Ssekyaaya each netted a brace.

Playmaker Goffin Oyirwoth, Samuel Kato Nahimana and the intelligent Hakim Kiwanuka were also on target.

Other schools as Boston, St Mary’s Kitende, St Juliana and Standard High School, Zana have also been free scoring sides.

St Mary’s Kitende, boasting of Vipers’ trio of Pius Wangi, Frank ‘Zagga’ Tumwesigye and Bashir Asiku completed their Group C games with a 5-0 win over Royal College at Kisubi Seminary playground.

Apart from the 2-0 hard fought win against little known Nsangi S.S, Kitende has been in blistering form scoring 21 goals in five matches.

St Juliana managed 14 goals in six matches, Standard High has 14 goals and Buddo has 17 with a game to spare against Kisubi High.

Peter ‘Caniggia’ Dronzi, a football coach with Bugonga Soccer Academy who specialized in young players is so excited about the scoring rate of the goals.

There is hope that we shall start to score goals at the national levels even national teams if such players are scoring at free will.

The best two sides from each of the four groups will play in the competitive quarter finals.

The quarter finals shall be played on Friday.
