Yeak Kabowa emerged victorious in the 2022/23 Futsal Super League as they defeated their rivals, Kisenyi Futsal Club, with a narrow 2-1 win on the season's final day.

The triumph marked Yeak Kabowa's second-ever championship, securing the title with a five-point lead over their competitors.

Their path to glory began with an impressive 6-2 victory against Edgars in the day's first game.

"It's an incredible feeling to lift the trophy as the captain of Yeak Kabowa," beamed Bruno Ssegirinya, the stalwart defender and leader of the triumphant team.

"This season has been a testament to our unity, hard work, and unwavering determination. We fought tooth and nail in every match, and our efforts have paid off most gloriously," he told the media.

Kisenyi Futsal Club, who finished second, had an outstanding season but fell short when it mattered most.

Going into the season's final matchday, they were on equal points with Yeak Kabowa.

However, they could only collect one point from their two games, allowing the title to slip from their grasp.

Their fortunes turned sour when they settled for a 4-all draw against last season's champions, KJT, and subsequently suffered defeat at the hands of Yeak Kabowa.

"Our game plan was to stay disciplined, exploit the openings, and defend resolutely. We left everything on the court and emerged as deserving champions," explained Ssegirinya.

Amidst their triumph, two standout players from Yeak Kabowa were honoured with individual awards.

Sahaf Kakande, the team's exceptional goalkeeper, was awarded the season's best goalkeeper for conceding the fewest goals in the league.

Despite Futsal being a high-scoring sport, Kakande only let in 16 goals across the ten games he played.

"To be named the Most Valuable Player of the Season is a tremendous honour," a visibly proud Ssegirinya noted.

"It's a reflection of the collective effort of our entire squad. We pushed each other to new heights, supporting one another in every match and giving our all for the badge on our chests," he added.

Another notable accolade went to Omara Samuel, the versatile rising star from Luzira FC, who secured the golden boot.

Samuel's impressive feat of scoring 13 goals in just ten games distinguished him as the league's top goal-scorer.
