April 11th, 2011 - Author: admin

Mutundwe Sandlanders had to grind the upper teeth to go past a resilient Red Stars FC. Three siblings and a magnificent goalkeeper from Red Stars almost halted the 10-Match operation that the Sandlanders have embarked on.

Kivumbi Fazil header was counted then later cancelled by the second Assistant referee but not long before Lutalo Hamzah unleashed a grass cutter that gave no chance to the Red Stars Goalkeeper. It was the first match playing without Nsereko Fred Zidane the newly found match maker and this was always going to be hard for the team that beat the Sandlanders 2-0 in the first leg in Mulago.

Red Stars did not make a mistake and it was 1-all with 8 minutes to go. Meanwhile the Red Stars Goalkeeper was making acrobatic save after save. Tamale Thomas the Sandlanders hardest shooter requested the coach for a few minutes onto the pitch to confirm the goalkeeper with a shot and indeed he got the opportunity and the young man flashed it out again.

The most on-form player cam on the pitch in Mpanga Twaha and his got the ball drove into the 18-yard box beating three defenders before he was hacked and the referee once again pointed at the spot. Taken by heir to the crown of match maker in Senyonjo Tom and final score was reading 2-1 in favour of the Sandlanders.
