FUFA Beach Soccer League: Mutoola Face St. Lawrence’s Test

The meeting of defending champions St. Lawrence University and leaders Mutoola BSC, as well as the former’s showdown with Buganda Royal are among the highlights as FUFA beach soccer league enters the fourth outing this Sunday at FUFA technical centre beach soccer arena in Njeru.

St. Lawrence BSC Vs Mutoola BSC

In-form Mutoola will get the fourth outing underway when they come against four-time champions St. Lawrence on Sunday morning.

Mutoola’s Sharif Apuuli has six goals in three matches

They have had a promising start to the season, winning all their opening four games against Grace Church, MUBS, Jinja Lions and MS Sand Lions to assume the summit of the table with 12 points.

But their perfect feat will now be checked by the unforgiving St. Lawrence who will be eager to collect as many points as they can, and as soon as possible to narrow the gap at the top.

Davis Nnono’s side is in fifth position and nine points behind Mutoola having played only one game this season.

St. Lawrence BSC Vs Buganda Royal 

After losing their opening two games, pressure piled on Buganda Royal that compelled their experienced coach Tony Ssebagala to return to the touchline the previous outing. They won 5-1 against Kiringente to rise to sixth on the table.

They will be renewing their acquaintances with St. Lawrence later on Sunday.

The sides’ past two meetings ended with Buganda Royal writhing after two heavy defeats; 9-5 in the league final last year and 10-7 in the UBSA super four beach soccer tournament in mid-January to eventual winners St. Lawrence BSC.

Kampala Junior Team (KJT) Vs Jinja Lions BSC

Debutants KJT have caught everyone by surprise, announcing themselves aloud on the big stage with two resounding wins in three matches to pick up six points, same as their opponents.

Jinja Lions will however want to make their 4-3 humbling by Mutoola last week a distant memory and they will be desperate to deliver the goods this time as the race for the play off positions gains momentum.

Wolves BSC Vs MUBS

It was a false start to the campaign for the two-time league champions – MUBS, losing 3-1 to Mutoola in their opener before beating KJT by the same score in their second match of the season. Coach Kato Adam Juma wishes to use the result as a springboard to relaunch their campaign going forward to restore their pride.

As for Wolves, their start to the season has not been good either. Following their 4-3 loss to KJT in their opening game was a three all draw against Grace Church. Meaning they have just one point to look at.

Fixtures that will follow will have KJT feature again, against the eighth placed Kiringente while Jinja Lions will also make a second appearance with Wolves in the last showpiece of the day.
