When referee Alex Muhabi called for the foul by Abel Eturude on Vipers’ intelligent midfielder Tom Masiko, 20 yards away from goal, the latter temporarily sat on the Kitende surface as he sighed with delight.

Taking his time, he pulled the stockings up. SC Villa players paraded the wall and Masiko confidently stood to hold the ball.

He kissed the ball, placed it down before curling it expertly past goalkeeper Samson Kirya with a slight deflection into the net.

Kitende exploded. The Fans whistled and roared louder as the former KCCA captain happily wheeled off to the corner flag as he was followed by teammates.

The goal on the half hour mark won the game and granted Vipers maximum points in a match marred by mild violence in the stands by fans in the visitors’ wing.

In the aftermath of the sweet victory, Masiko has dedicated the goal to club director Lawrence Mulindwa.

I dedicate the goal to Mr. Lawrence Mulindwa. He is the reason for the club success for his sacrifice and love for the game.

We all worked as a team and i am happy to have scored the only goal of the day.

First league goal

Masiko officially opened his league goal account at the club he joined in the primary transfer window.

This followed two other earlier matches at Bright Stars (0-0) and the narrow 1-0 victory at home against Jinja side, BUL.

He appreciates the teammates, technical team, management, sponsors and club loyalists alike.

I wish to thank the entire working team at Vipers Sports Club.

We are one complete family from my teammates, coaches, management, the sponsors and the fans. Personally, I have a target to score 15 goals in the season.

Masiko and the rest of his teammates will engage in a recovery session on Sunday before Monday’s final training ahead of short visit to Entebbe to face Masavu.

Masavu will host Vipers at the lake side Fisheries Training Institute playground in Bugonga, Entebbe.
