First Phase of Entebbe Zone Copa Coca Cola football qualifiers witnesses 90 goal frenzy

By our reporter

A total of 90 goals were scored in the 40 matches played during the opening phase of the Entebbe Zone Copa Coca Cola qualifiers.

Among these 90 goals was a hat-trick from Kisubi High School’s lethal striker Abraham Maku during their 4-0 humiliation of May Christian School at the University of Kisubi Play ground.

Other goals were braces and single goals like Green Stars’ Talik Mubiru’s two goals in their 2-0 win against Entebbe International at the sandy Katabi Gombolola play ground. 

The 2020 Entebbe Zone Copa Football Qualifiers were halted after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni ceased school’s activities because of the looming the state of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat in the country and across the globe.

By the time of the forced stop, these qualifiers had reached the closing stages of the group phase. 

Twenty three (23) schools from within Entebbe Municipality and Katabi Town Council (up to Kisubi High School)registered for these qualifiers.

According to Dirisa Walusimbi, the head of technical affairs, the qualifiers will be completed moments after clearance by the president concerning the Corona virus scourge.

“We shall resume business after being cleared by the President and of course when the schools start once again” Walusimbi notes.

One of the interesting matches in these qualifiers had been played by the time of the stoppage; the long time derby between traditional arch rivals Entebbe SS and Entebbe Parents.

Entebbe Parents won the highly billed contest 2-0 at the Manyango play ground.

The two finalists will advance to the Wakiso District qualifiers slated at Kawanda SS and Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium (Wakisha Resource center).

At the Wakiso district qualifiers, other schools from the zones of Kitende, Aggrey, Nsangi, Masuliita, Entebbe and Gayaza will join the frey from where the top five schools make it to the national copa coca cola championship slated for Arua district.

The dates for this year’s national copa coca cola grand finals are most likely to be affected because of the forced break due to Coronavirus.
