In a show of utter dominance reminiscent to their Champions status, KCCA FC proved too much a handful for a restrained Maroons side.
KCCA got off the blocks flying courtesy of three first half goals. Patrick Henry Kaddu with a brace and Muzamiru Mutyaba with a goal sandwiched by Kaddu’s two strikes.
In what is hardly seen in Ugandan football, both players exhibited enormous class by simply raising their hands to the skies after their respective strikes in a majestic show of respect which was warmly taken in by the small section of Maroons faithfuls.
Mike Mutebi will definitely be happy with what was on display as KCCA played with the conviction that he had demanded of his lads as they bowed out for the 2018-19 season.
In all fairity, this was a no contest as large chunks of the game were one way traffic but Robert Sekyewa’s boys should partly take the blame for dishing way too much respect to their opponents on the evening.
Further second half goals from Allan Okello, Allan Kyambadde and Herbert Achai helped consign Maroons to their heaviest defeat of the season with their consolation strike coming in from their number 18, Sheif Batte.
This result means that KCCA finish the league on 66 points while Maroons were leapfrogged into twelfth spot by SC Villa who put up a six star performance of their own at home to already relegated Nyamityobora.
By the look of proceedings, the future is surely bright for this young budding KCCA side as senior team regulars such as Fillbert Obenchan, Isaac Kirabira and Bernard Muwanga could only make do with a place on the bench.
There was no sign of players like Mustafa Kizza who is away on trials at Valladolid, Spain; going to show you the depth within this squad and gulf of class with respect to the other side’s in the league.
Surely at this rate, you feel by 2022 or earlier, KCCA FC could have easily pulled level on 16 league titles with SC Villa.
Or maybe just have surpassed them because they have surely upped their game and there seems to be no side just about to match their quality right now.
The sky is just not the limit for this crop of players, they should be aiming much higher than the sky.
But before they can think of that, Mike Mutebi has got to figure out a way of retaining some of his best talents at the side as they look forward to continental football next season.
