The group stages for the 2019 Copa Coca Cola schools football championship will climax on Monday, May 13, 2019 over the different venues in Jinja.

There are a number of matches lined up as the schools complete their group stage assignments to determine who progresses to the round of 16.

These comes come after a grueling week of action where all the 59 schools have at least played six games apiece.

In some of Sunday’s games, Mbarara High walloped Ngora High 12-0 in arguably the biggest score-line at the tournament so far.

St Mary’s Kitende overcame Pallisa’s Hill View Bulangira 6-1 with a brace apiece from left winger Abdul Karim Watambala and Umar Kyebatala at the Kakindu Stadium.

SC Villa’s striker Charles ‘Neymar’ Lwanga and Dennis Ojara got the other goals for a dominant St Mary’s Kitende before a capacity crowd which included St Mary’s director Lawrence Mulindwa (Dr).

St Mary’s Kitende right back Emmanuel Munoobi poked the ball in his own net for the consolation of Hill View Bulangira who had a promising start to the game but later faded.

Wakiso representatives Kawempe Royal humbled Kitara Model 4-2 and Paidha SS won 2-1 against Mandela S.S.

The Jinja Progressive Academy (JIPRA) – Kapchorwa Standard encounter ended prematurely with JIPRA leading 4-0 after 13 minutes.

Kapchorwa Standard had kicked off the game with only seven players and the game could not continue when one of their players picked up a knock and could therefore not continue.

The round of 16 draws will be held at Jinja College where the secretariat is found.

Also, all the participating schools are residing at Jinja College with all the referees staying at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.
