Vipers 1-0 Platinum Stars
Milton Karisa, a midseason signing from BUL FC made his mark in the CAF Confederation Cup when he scored an important and historic goal on the day Vipers SC opened their new stadium-St Mary’s in Kitende on Saturday. Vipers edged South African side Platinum Stars 1-0 and will carry an advantage into the return leg next weekend.
Halftime ended goalless at a match that saw the capacity crowd very expectant due to the ambiance surrounding the tie.
Vipers SC will be hoping for lady luck again while playing away having knocked out Moroni of Comoros on away goals rule following a 1-1 draw in the preliminary round.
With the stakes high for the return leg, Vipers will leave no stone unturned to gain access on sporting merit into the net round of the competition.
Meanwhile KCCA FC will return later today from South Africa where they fell 2-1 to African champions Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League.
