Healthy Chemelil win excites coach Baraza


Sofapaka coach John Baraza has praised his players for the emphatic 3-0 win over Chemelil Sugar in Awasi on Saturday and says it was a brilliant way to end the first leg. A double from Pistone Mutamba and one from skipper Stephen Waruru saw Sofapaka finish the first leg with 30 points.

“It was our target to finish on 30 points and I am happy we achieved it. Chemelil is always a tough place to come and getting to win by a 3-0 margin is a really great thing for us,” Baraza said.

“We played according to the plan and everything worked for us. We gave 100pc on the pitch and also Justin (Ndikumana) saving the first half penalty gave us some confidence heading into the rest of the game,” added the tactician.

Baraza hopes the confidence picked up with back to back wins can spur the side heading into the second leg.

“We now go into the tough phase of the season where every point is vital. It will be tough but we are ready to fight to the end. We want to start the second leg well and keep the form to the end,” the coach opined.
