Copa Coca Cola Finals
Third(3rd) place play off.
St Mary’s Kitende came a goal from down to revenge against Jinja SSS with a 3-1 victory to clinch their ninth Copa Coca Cola title in the secondary Schools championship hosted by Jinja College.
It was a sweet revenge for St Mary’s Kitende that lost in Spot kicks to Jinja SSS in 2017 finals in Masaka.
Danger man Lawrence Tezikya gave Jinja SSS an early lead in the 9th when he connected well to Ismail Mugulusi corner. And substitutes Umaru Kyebatalya and Yiga Najib equalised and gave Kitende the lead respectively shortly after being brought on.
Richard Basangwa put the icing on the cake with the third goal and the Jinja chaotic fans started throwing stones on the pitch and Police had to fire tear gas to calm the situation
Jinja SSS goal keeper Lazarus Oblejo made a crucial save and denied Kitende the equaliser when he dealt well with Bobosi Byaruhanga free kick close to the end of the first half.
SMASK head coach Dan Male made two technical substitutions that changed the game; Umaru Kyabatala and Yiga Najib for Stephen Serwadda and Charles Lwanga and they both scored.
SMASK won their ninth title and Jinja SSS has only won it once in 2017 and they beat St Mary’s Kitende in Masaka.
SMASK has won it more times (9) than any other school and Kibuli has won it eight times since 1993. Kitende had last won it in 2015 in Hoima.
In the third place play off match, Innocent Ronald and Joseph Kafumbe scored for Buddo in either half in a 2-0 victory over Standard High school Zana.
