Big Talent Soccer Academy players celebrate after the final whistle

Mengo, Park, Synergy and Big Talent Soccer Academy had their eyes on the finals whilst Aidenal, Kisenyi, Kabowa and Kampala Junior Team battled for a league table state affair.

A final in a maiden season for Big Talent

Big Talent Soccer Academy came into the Futsal circles only with their Head coach Muhammad Ssembatya as experienced and knowledgeable enough about the game being a former Futsal Super league winner with Yeak Kabowa.

With just a lot not expected from them, they were just the good surprise package of the season. Into the semis, Big Talent found themselves two goals behind unbeaten Synergy- another novice, after quick ones from Travis Mutyaba and Buule MacDonald just under ten minutes with Kaye Ronald receiving match orders after reckless play against Synergy’s Mutyaba. With all hopes low, they rallied behind their captain Wabyoona Faisal and Katende Akram to level matters before the break restoring with interest in the game.

With both sides playing more tactical in the second half, Synergy got their noses in front again through Yasin Sabir, the lethal forward bust to left, beat his marker and squeezed a tight angled drive for a third. Big Talent got numerous chances to level but squandered by Farouk Tumwesigye before Wabyoona got his second of the day. Synergy accumulated a sixth foul that was gracefully busted into the net by a fresh Assimwe Herbert to send Big Talent into ecstasy.

Park parking in the final

A win against Kisenyi on Match day 4 kick started a redemption for Park Futsal club who had won nothing before then. By far the most pressured side of the league, they have stealthily recollected themselves into the finals.

All they needed was a first half lone strike from their captain Iddi Babu, their skipper found himself in a path of a long switched ball to chest and kick on a half volley into the net for a goal they jealously defended against Mengo who gave everything but not breaking down a tirelessly hard working structure set by Park to set up an awaited Futsal Super league final.

KJT manage a win eventually.
Kampala Junior Team were the only side yet to win a game in the Futsal Super league season but their improved performances were pointing to that.

There was no better day to do that than Match Day 7. With Kisenyi missing out on four key players and almost having no viable option on the bench, lead goal scorer Billy Nkata netted a glut to extend his tally to 15 inspiring KJT to a memorable first victory. Avemah Shafiq scored a hatrick and Hussein Abdala Sadam got another for Kisenyi to end it at 5-4.

Aidenal in for a good finish

Aidenal Sosa can finish fifth just outside the semi finals if they win against KJT on the final day of the Futsal Super league season. Kaweesi’s side comfortably swept Yeak Kabowa 6-2 to continue with their improved run of results making it four wins in the last five outings. Kisiro Kenneth, Kavuma Marvin and Kiiza Angello bagged a brace each to stick it to a sorry Yeak Kabowa.
