Paterne, 17. Max Wilfred Gomesse,18. Paul Maurent.
Vipers Sports Club with the whole support of the twelveth Player started neatly evidenced by Karisa’s shot that went wide within the first two minutes of starting time.
The Hosts who mostly used the Right wing of Play bossed the game,thanks to Siraje-Osomba-Anukani Trio who kept piling pressure.
Team work finally paid off in the 18th minute of the First Stanza after guilty Yunus Sentamu who had missed two beautiful chances curled home a resultant through pass from Milton Karisa.
Olympic Real De Bangui whose squad averages 23years of age surprisingly endeavoured some efforts to level matters but has pledged,Alfred Mudekereza was UpTo task.
The Second Second Stanza could be one holding the hopes of the Central African Republican side as youngester Paul Maurent stood to lead Proceeds.
Coaches Roberto Oliveira and Marcelo Cardoso whose Credentials are uncertain by CAF kept commanding authority from the VIP Stands as they monitored minute to minute proceedings,tell the physical order to Assistant Coach Ibrahim Mugisha to replace Pacy Ibrahim Orit for Injured Najib Yiga in the First substitution of the game.
This substitution surely paid off as the venoms’ attack force in the Second half was engineered by the Former Mbarara City FC player.
The Visitors who had plenty to showcase in the last Stanza came near to making matters level as Soleil Mangolobao shot kissed the post in the Four additional Minutes.
The Central African Republican outfit who will now have to remember history finished with a man less as Max Wilfred was sent off for indulging in a brawl with Midfield Kingpin Sirage Sentamu.
