KIMUVOT shared the spoils with Standard SS in a 1-all stalemate played at the St Seseme playground on Martyrs day, 3rd June, 2022.
In a game witnessed by hundreds of student fans from both schools, First half ended without any side breaking the deadlock.
However, Manishimwe Joshua’s 78th strike gave Standard secondary school an early lead before a late-late quick equalizer from the spot by Joachim in the 83rd minute to fabricate some hope for the ‘hosts’ KIMUVOT.
Standard secondary school started the game with gusto in the opening stages, forcing KIMUVOTI to concede the first corner in the 17th minute when defender Hillary blocked Isaac’s shot inside the goal area to deflect the ball slightly off the goal posts.
The corner was calmly received by KIMUVOTI’s goal keeper, Byiringyiro Manasi before laying the ball for his team mate Bayizere Moses whose efforts to cross the 18 yard box were denied by Standard SS’s centre back, Ronald.
Nicknamed Mzee, the day’s referee blew the half time whistle at exactly 45 minutes of first half.
Standard SS persistently knocked at KIMUVOTI’s door but the defence was so solid until the 78th minute when Manishimwe Joshua tapped in a long pass from Carzola to score first goal past Keeper, Byiringyiro Manasi.
After 5 minutes, Standard were penalised for their reckless defending when Karamira fouled Municipal’s Frank in the box before Joachim calmly converted it in the opposite side of goal keeper, Senkajayo Allan.
Speaking to voice of Muhabura after the final whistle, The Kisoro Municipal vocational training institute’s principal, Tumwizere Michael noted that the game gave his charges confidence and they will perform better in the subsequent friendly fixtures.
He added that such outings expose his students to make friends from different fields.
Standard SS students were led by one of the school’s directors Elisa Mfitundida. The school is located along former Kisoro-Kabale high way before ascending to Nyakabande airstrip.
‘Such co-curricular activity makes students reboot after long hours of classroom studies. That’s why my students excel in the end, we give them enough time to exercise,’ Elisa told voice of Muhabura reporter.
