FBSL: Fierce Battles To Highlight End Of First Round

Beach soccer enthusiasts are in for a thrilling Sunday featuring headline duels involving Kampala City, Mutoola, Buganda Royal and defending champions St. Lawrence University. With Kampala City’s latest triumph over Buganda Royal setting the stage, St. Lawrence’s quest to trim the Ab’emikwano’s lead sees them facing off in a block buster clash this Sunday at FUFA technical centre in Njeru.

Having missed the previous two outings, St. Lawrence, who are also the record league champions with five titles, will dominate the outing in terms of appearances as they also have to play their rescheduled matches against eternal rivals Buganda Royal and Mutoola, with all the ties having more than just bragging rights at stake.

Clash of the Titans: Kampala City Vs St. Lawrence

A tactical chess match awaits as Ivan Kulika’s men aim to protect their perfect winning record in the league. Kampala City may be rookies here but have started their maiden season with a bang.

Boasting with seasoned men on the sand, including former and current national team players – Douglas Muganga, Paul Lule, Paul Kato, Shaka Ssozi and the gigantic Nicholas Mwere, they remain the only side yet to drop a point this term as they have collected a maximum of 24 points from the eight games played to sit on top of the pile.

Davis Nnono’s St. Lawrence must shore up their ranks to withstand Kampala’s onslaught. The Ab’emikwano have a strong attacking nerve and their attacking fire power can demolish any defense. SLAU’s response will hinge on a disciplined defensive strategy to thwart Kampala City’s potent attack, and also hope that their marksmen Baker Lukooya, Brian Nkuubi and Ronald Magwali hit the net at the opposite end.

Buganda Royal Vs St. Lawrence

It’s the battle that will open the promising outing packed with beach soccer drama. Buganda Royal will look to extend their impressive run of form. The Abambowa, fuelled by recent victories, are eager to solidify their claim for a top four place but must be at their best or should even seek divine intervention to quieten a star decorated SLAU. The reigning champions, with their eyes on the top spot, are expected to display their might against this youthful side that has defied expectations so far.

St. Lawrence Vs Mutoola

FUFA technical centre beach soccer arena will buzz again as Mutoola flex muscles with the Saints in a sparkling encounter.

Mutoola, struggling to find their footing this season, face a must—win scenario to maintain their chase for a top four status. Ensnared in arguably a perilous form, they find themselves at crossroads where every point could be the difference between a top four spot and despair even though it’s still early. They need to win this one to rekindle their hope and confidence.

Rounding off the day, MS Sand Lions will play Wolves; Mutoola will be against Grace Church while Buganda Royal will close their first round business against Wolves.
