Five Stars Football Club thumped rivals Monaco FC 4-1 on Friday 22nd July 2022 to reach the quarter finals of the ongoing Kataka (Bulesa) memorial tournament.

 

Some of the fallen players that are honoured

 

Monaco just needed a draw of any score in the group B decider to progress, but unfortunately lost the game to bow out of the tournament.

 

Lethal forward Gerrald Ogwet bagged a brace, Edris Kabejja and substitute Damiano Mukiibi scored a piece each.

 

Allan Semakula found the consolation for Monaco from the penalty spot after substitute Arafat was brought down in the area.

 

Five Stars showed early signs of winning the game, created some quick but Bright Stars ‘ Ibrahim Kasinde and Pereka Sande didnot use them.

 

Closely after Kasinde missed the two chances, Monaco bowed to the pressure and Ogwet assisted by Kasinde capitalised on defender Kamada Tebusweke mistake and gave the stars a much needed lead in the 11th minute they defended to the half time mark.

 

Monaco tried to create chances before the half time mark but their talisman Douglas Owori could not find the target on his attempts from long range.

 

Five Stars FC Skipper Ssimbwa who was employed at right back, had a busy day in office and did a good job to tame danger man and former Bul FC forward.

 

Before scoring in the second, midfielder Kabejja had got a close chance to extend the lead for the Stars but missed a seater.

 

The introduction of midfielder Arafat in the second stanza, gave Monaco a life-line and momentum. Created chances for Allan Semakula but was denied by goalkeeper Jackson Kigozi.

 

Monaco made some tactical substitutions taking off right back Wasswa for a more creative player but it didnot work out well for coach Simon Wamala and conceded the second Ogwet goal in the 56th minute assisted by Kasinde again.

 

The stars took charge of the game after scoring the second and shortly Kabejja put the game out of reach with the third goal assisted by Gerald Ogweti.

 

Five stars coach Emma Cambiaso brought on  Marvin Ssebuliba and Mukiibi for Mimi and Kabejja and his substitutes yielded instant results Mukiibi getting his forth goal.

Allan penalty goal made it 3-1 and Mukiibi closed the scoring on the day in the 83rd minute.

 

Five stars FC that progressed as runners up in group B will either face Juve or the winner between Kataka Sunday Special or Ashraf FC.

 

Tournament action continues on Saturday with a Group C game, B13 taking on Kasenyi in the battle to lead group having both qualified already.

 

Kataka Sunday Special will take on team Ashraf FC on Sunday targeting maximum points to qualify and Ashraf FC just need a point to book a place in the quarters.

 

Kataka- Bulesa Memorial Tournament is played annually at Kataka Nkumba Pitch to  remember of the fallen footballers at that pitch.
