BEACH SOCCER LEAGUE: St. Lawrence University wins league

St. Lawrence successfully defended the National Beach Soccer League after clinching the 2021 edition played at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

St. Lawrence university Beach Soccer Club were given a check from the University management and each individual player were awarded accordingly to appreciate the work well done.

SLAU, winners in 2013, 2019, 2021 and 2022, clinched the final tie 9-5 to climax the season with an enviable unbeaten record.

Lukooya, who netted a brace in the finals, was deservedly named the season’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) as SLAU dominated the best five selected team.

There was little doubt that St Lawrence University (SLAU) were favourites to defend the national beach soccer league title. However, what left the spectators at the Fufa Technical Center in Njeru bewildered on Sunday was the ruthlessness and precision in which they executed the task at hand.

Expect more from SLAU

Nnono says his triumphant team is reaping from the three-year bondage that has made them near invincibles.

After dispatching hapless Mubs 6-1 in the semifinals, the stage was set for another epic final with last year’s victims Buganda Royal who overcame KIU 7-3 in the other contest.  Davis Nnono’s SLAU had Baker Lukooya, Jonathan Kikonyogo, Allan Katwe, Joshua Lubwama, Brian Nkuubi and Rica Byaruhanga on the scoresheet against Mubs’ Charles Ayeikho.

The final between SLAU and Buganda Royal was intense in the initial stages but soon the gulf in class favoured the former.
