East Africa SS Games: Kitende to Play Jinja SS in Final

Kitende's captain Fadiga in action

There will be a replay of this year’s national post primary final as St. Mary’s Kitende and Jinja Secondary School have reached the final of the 2017 East African Secondary Schools football final.

The two sides met May this year in Masaka and Jinja SS edged out Kitende in a penalty shootout to clinch their first ever final.

East Africa record champions St. Mary’s Kitende needed a hard fought performance to eliminate Nakaseke International in the final played at Gulu High School playground.

Normal time had ended in a one all draw but Kitende held the nerves to win 4-3 in a tense penalty shootout.

In the other semifinal, Jinja SS put up a solid performance to oust Kenya’s Kakamega 2-0 with Joel Madondo putting up a man of the match performance.

The lethal forward gave Jinja SS the lead before setting up skipper Jerome Kirya in the second half to double the lead.

This meant Jinja SS sought revenge for the 2-1 loss to Kakamega in the opening game at Pece stadium last Saturday.

Nakaseke International will now take on Kakamega in the classification game before the final.
