Bidco Uganda Limited (Bul) FC looked on helplessly as Vipers SC scored eight times to emphatically win the 2021 Stanbic Uganda Cup.
In a final played at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru on Sunday, Bul could just manage a consolation towards the end of the game.
Yunus Sentamu had hit the net four times, Cesar Manzoki had a brace while Livingstone Mulondo and Milton Karisa had a goal each as the Venoms clinched their second title.
Vipers’ intentions were clear from the start as Mulondo headed them in front just after three minutes.
Twenty-two minutes later, Sentamu doubled the lead thanks for Paul Willa’s hard and nice work.
In what had started to look like a training session,the boys from Kitende made it four in quick succession through Manzoki.
The striker tapped in a Milton Karisa’s cross in the 35th minute before completing his brace moments later. And thus, it was 4-0 at halftime!
Upon resumption,Sentamu got his second of the game before completing his hat-trick ten minutes into the second stanza.
The 2020/21 top scorer scored his fourth of the game in the 67th minute.
Earlier, Karisa also had gotten on the scoresheet with a deflected freekick that caught Musa Esenu unaware in the BUL goal. Esenu had replaced Sanon Mulabi in between the sticks for BUL.
Hamis Tabita pulled a goal back for BUL in the 73rd minute.
The depleted side from the East had their maiden Uganda cup final but it will be a one to forget. However, for the Venomous snakes, it’s a sweet second and first since 2015.
At the sound of the final whistle, the new man at the helm of Vipers Brazilian Oliviera Robertinho was all smiles as his opposite number Alex Isabirye looked on in disbelief.
