Explosive Samuel Sekamatte puts Express to the sword as Bright Stars record 4th successive win

Joseph Balikuddembe 

There is no better in form striker in the Uganda Premier league than Samuel Sekamatte. Today, he missed a penalty and made for it by scoring the equaliser against the title pretenders Express FC at Kavumba

Building on his previous impressive form, he  literally stamped his claim on the Wankulukuku based side with a ruthless execution. He has taken his season tally to 9, only one behind top scorer Yunus  Sentamu.

While trailing Express by Ibrahim Kayiwa’s 42nd minute header , Bright Stars were awarded a penalty at the stroke of half time following a handball in the forbidden area.

Sekamatte stood firm beaming with a sniper’s confidence ready to execute his target but his resultant kick fell into Muwanga’s speculated direction.

His moment to pounce came in the 76th minute and punished Express for their lack of concentration in defence. The game was drawn level at this time.

Baker Mbowa’s men proved why they are the side to have scored the highest number of late goals evident from their 3-2 over Wakiso Giants.

This time it was from an unlikely source, substitute Emmanuel Loki sealed it for them in the 87th minute and consequently extended Express’ winless streak to 3 games.

Their title quest  hangs in balance and they have a tough huddle to climb when they visit defending champions Vipers on Friday 23rd April

Bright stars move up to 6th on the log with 29 points. They will take their challenge to URA when they host them at Kavumba 24th April
