Alex Kitata’s hat-trick helped Gaddafi FC savour a 3-0 victory over Soltilo Bright Stars in the Startimes Uganda Premier League at Kakindu Stadium, Jinja.

The result implied Gaddafi picked a second successive victory and the the first at home, after a somewhat slow start to the 2022/23 campaign.

It meant the absolute opposite for Asaph Mwebaze’s charges, who suffered a second consecutive defeat, and the first on the road.

Kitata opened the day’s account in the sixth minute with a well placed strike past goalkeeper Hassan Matovu.

Emmanuel Loki then had a chance to level matters for Bright Stars in the 24th minute, but his powerful strike was well dealt with by Gaddafi’s custodian Joel Mutakubwa.

Bright Stars kick-started the second half the hungrier of the two, searching and probing for an equalizer, but Sam Senyonjo’s header off Denis Omony’s cross sailed inches over the crossbar.

In the 78th minute, Kitata added his second with a powerful and well-placed header past Matovu.

In the 83rd minute, Kitata returned to haunt the visitors with another superb effort, to cap off a dominant display by the home team.


Implications of the result and what’s next on the horizon

Victory lifted Gaddafi up to seventh with nine points while the Mwererwe based outfit are now 11th on the 15-team log with five points.

In their next encounter, Gaddafi will visit Wakiso Giants on Friday November 18th, whereas Bright Stars will host Onduparaka three days earlier at Kavumba Recreation Grounds.
