East Africa SS Games: Kitende Edge Jinja SS to Cement Dominance

Captain Fadiga scored the lone goal to help Kitende defeat Jinja SS

St. Mary’s Kitende won a record 13th trophy in the boys football at the East Africa Secondary School games with a slim victory against Jinja SS.

Kitende edged 10-man Jinja Secondary School 1-0 in extra time in a closely contested final played at Pece stadium in Gulu District.

Skipper Fadiga who came on as a substitute got the lone goal converting from a penalty in the first half of extra time.

Kitende were the better side in terms of creating chances but failed to convert them.

At the start of the second half, Jinja SS were reduced to ten men with midfielder Nassur shown marching orders after a second bookable offence on Brian Kalumba in the box.

However, Pius Wangi failed to convert the resultant penalty with his effort ricocheting off the woodwork.

Jinja SS held off the pressure in the remaining minutes and normal time ended in a goalless draw.

Kitende were awarded a second penalty in extra time but this time round Fadiga was able to convert and this turned out to be the decider.

In the girl’s final, Kenya’s Wiyeta Girls School edged Kawempe Muslim 3-1 in the penalty shootout after normal time had ended in a one all draw.

Mukono High settled for third place also winning 5-4 in a penalty shootout.
