Bright Stars 4-2 Team No Pressure played on Friday in Luzira.
Goals: Bright Stars FC-Nelson Senkatuka (2), Onek Alfred and Moses Okot
Team No Pressure: Walusimbi (own goal) and Tiyote Asule
Two late goals in additional time earned Bright Stars FC a deserved 4-2 win over stubborn Team No Pressure FC in a build up match at Bishop Cyprian Kihangire SS playground in Luzira on Friday morning.
The hosts squandered a 2-0 first half lead after team captain Nelson Senkatuka had found the net in the 8th and 45th minute. Both sides looked to have settled for a draw after the Bright Stars FC defence fell to the visitors’ pressure thereby conceding twice early on in the second half to level the scores 2-2.
Alfred Onek’s volley outside the penalty area in the 91st minute restored the lead for the hosts before Moses Okot was brought down in the area as Bright Stars FC continued to press late in added time.
Okot got back to his feet to score from 12 yards for the match to end 4-2.
Walusimbi (own goal) and Tiyote Asule got the goals for Team No Pressure FC.
Head Coach Fred Kajoba was left impressed by his team’s performance especially the newly acquired pair of Mahad Kisekka and Sam Sekitto who played the first and second half respectively.
‘My team played well except for a few howlers that had us punished with two goals. I am impressed by our new players. We need a few more tests before the start of the second round of the Azam Uganda Premier League’ commented Kajoba.
The coach fielded different teams for the build up match but Seif Batte and Senkatuka fresh from the CHAN Finals in Morocco were playing together for the first time since their return.
