St. Lawrence Down Mutoola To Retain Super Four Crown

St.  Lawrence University defeated Mutoola BSC 4-2 on Sunday to retain the super four beach tournament crown at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru. Super four is the competition that serves as the curtain raiser to the new season. It is played by the top four teams as ranked by the previous season.

Baker Lukooya scored a hat-trick before Jonathan Kikonyogo added the fourth for the Saints to secure the trophy, their second in three finals played.

Mutoola cruised past MS Sand Lions in the semifinals but were a shadow of themselves against Davis Nnono’s side.

They looked nervous and coiled their tails at the ultimate stage that mattered most. Their two goals came through Simon Peter Kijjo and Faisal Ssekitti.

Despite finishing fifth, Buganda Royal took part as a replacement for Jinja Lions who dropped out of the competition but were swiftly undone at the semifinal stage by an experienced St. Lawrence team. The new look side soon had their heads in their hands a few moments into the first period when Emmanuel Wasswa struck for St. Lawrence.

Veteran Sulaiman Ochero and Baker Lukooya grabbed a brace each to seal victory for their side while Dalton Davis Ssewanyana stood tall for the Abambowa with all the two goals.

MS Sand Lions, appearing in this competition for the very first time, were swept aside at the first time of asking by Mutoola. Faisal Ssekit (2), Simon Peter Kijjo, Sharif Apuuli and Farooq Kiberu scored for the Sand Giants. The Lions from Makindye had their goals through Simon Kizito and Emmanuel Matovu.

Buganda Royal beat Ms Sand Lions 5-3 in the third place play off to finish third.

St. Lawrence has now won the most super four titles – two, having defeated Buganda Royal in the previous edition held early this year.
