Mandela National Stadium, Namboole
NAMBOOLE – After a frustrating season, SC Villa saved the best for last.
The 16 time record league champions put six goals past a hapless Nyamityobora side in one of the 8 StarTimes Uganda Premier League games played on Saturday, May 4th.
This was Villa’s biggest win of the season and the most convincing of all of them.
Three goals were scored in either half as the fans celebrated wildly, forgetting the agony they have endured throughout 2018/18, for once.
Ronald Magwali opened the scoring as early as the 8th minute to put Villa on their way.
Pius Wangi added the second on the half hour mark to hype the Villa faithful hopes.
Four minutes to halftime, veteran play-maker, Mike Sserumaga added a third to ensure the Jogoos go into the break holding a comfortable 3-0 lead.
A minute past the hour mark, Sserumaga who has spent most of the season coming off the bench, struck again for his side’s 4th.
Six minutes later, former Vipers winger Joseph Ssemuju joined in on the scoring party with Villa’s 5th.
By now, Nyamityobora were fearing for the worst and their fears turned into reality as the home side struck again with 15 minutes to play.
It was former Police FC midfielder Albert Mugisa who popped up with the good, scoring to put Villa 6-0 up.
6-0 is how it ended to hand Nyamityobora their heaviest defeat of the season.
It was the second time this season that the Abanyakare have conceded six after doing like wise earlier in the season away to KCCA FC (6-1).

Against Nyamityobora, the players mastered the instructions and tactics given to them.
