SC Kalele Crowned NLL Season 13 Champions in Jinja

The Ntare Lions League has completed its 13th season with a thrilling finale that saw Sc Kalele emerge victorious against their arch-rivals, TY Omujuma. The atmosphere was electric as fans of both teams packed the stadium to witness the highly anticipated match.

The match began with high intensity, as both Sc Kalele and TY Omujuma were determined to clinch the Shield for the first time. TY Omujuma took early attempts at goal, but couldn’t score. Sc Kalele responded with a flurry of attacks, and it was Alvin who finally managed to get Sc Kalele off the mark, creating a fantastic assist that was expertly finished by their striker Aaron Ndahura, the league’s second top scorer, to give them the lead going into halftime.

The second half of the match was even more thrilling as TY Omujuma came out with renewed vigor. Despite boasting star players like Allan Dziz, Joseph Musinguzi (league top scorer), Noel Kagezi and Paul Mugerwa the season’s Most Valuable Player, they were left to rue a defensive error that saw them play Phillip in the wrong position and despite their best efforts, they were unable to break down Sc Kalele’s resolute defense.

The tension in the stadium was palpable as the clock ticked down towards the final whistle. With just minutes left on the clock, Sc Kalele launched a blistering counter-attack through skipper Albert but couldn’t find the second  goal . TY came agonizingly close on several occasions with throw-ins into the box but Sc Kalele’s defense held firm, and they managed to hold on for a hard-fought victory.

Earlier in the day, the placement games between the clubs were the center of attention, determining the final table positions. Notably, Machando secured a win against their rivals, Nshera FC, claiming the third position. In addition, two friendly games were played, with Bweras FC emerging victorious against MaryHill’s Holistics team on penalties, while Chaapa Bulls FC suffered a defeat against Bonshe FC.

The scenes of celebration that followed were nothing short of spectacular, as Sc Kalele’s players and fans alike were overjoyed at their triumph. For TY Omujuma, it was a heartbreaking defeat, but they can take solace in the fact that they gave their all and pushed Sc Kalele to the very end. TY Omujuma were also crowned Chess Champions for the inaugural season.

This victory for Sc Kalele marks a historic moment in the club’s history, and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the players and coaching staff. The Ntare Lions League final provided a fitting conclusion to what has been an exciting and memorable season, and it is a testament to the passion and love for soccer that is so deeply ingrained in the Ntare OBs community.
