BUL produced a master class of football in their opening game of the season as they romped to a 5-0 victory over Blacks Power on Saturday afternoon.
On a day of acute humiliation for the hosts, the Eastern Giants emphasised the huge gulf between the sides in a cruel fashion.
Ever green forward Karim Ndugwa as well as Richard Wandyaka scored a brace each, with Jerome Kirya joining the scoring party as Blacks Power crumbled at Akibua Memorial stadium in Lira.
Ndugwa got his first just after nine minutes with ferocious shot on the turn off his right boot. Kirya then put the Eastern Giants 2-0 up shortly with a clever finish when Hillary Onek’s cross was deflected in his path.
The floodgates were well and truly open and BUL added a third and a fourth before the break.
Wandyaka scored two goals on the quick fire in a space of just four minutes. He tucked in a rebound after Blacks Power failed to deal well with Ndugwa’s header on 25 minutes, before he stretched BUL’s lead to four, four minutes later.
Ndugwa peeled off the pack at the back post to complete his brace after the interval when Ronald Otti flicked the ball into the box following a conor situation. With the score 5-0, BUL utilized most of the remaining time just to control the proceedings and enjoy the game after Blacks Power had coiled their tails.
The result has set the Eastern Giants at the top of table alongside Maroons with three points. The team will return to FUFA Technical Center for the second match at UPDF next weekend.
