How the Vipers players rated in the 1-0 win over Al Merreikh

first_imgSsekagya made to excellent stops in the second half (Photo by Vipers Media)On Wednesday, Vipers defeated Al Merreikh 1-0 to reach the first Round of the CAF Champions League.Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Abraham Ndugwa struck at the start of the second half to see the Venoms through on away goals.It was a wonderful team effort but here is how each Venom rated on the day.Bashir Sekagya 7.5: He was more of a spectator in the first half but as Al Marreikh searched for an equalizer, he stood firm to deny them twice in the last period. The save to deny Mohamed Yousif following Yayo Lutimba’s mistake was top notch.Geoffrey Wasswa 7.5: Played most of the game with a yellow card but was impressive all day, setting up Ndugwa for the winner at the start of the second half.Halid Lwaliwa 9.0: What a performance by Lwaliwa. Hands down the best player on the pitch as he made one interception after the other. Led like the leader he is at the back and looked impenetrable all day.Livingstone Mulondo 7.0: Mulondo looked to be in control of proceedings for the entire 90 minutes and also had Wasswa besides him for help when required.Yayo Lutimba 6.5: Aside from the mistake that played in Yousif, Lutimba had a decent day out patrolling the left side of the pitch excellently.Tadeo Lwanga 7.0: As per his usual standards, Tadeo was not at his best but managed to execute his role.Brian Nkuubi 6.5: Nkuubi was in and out of the game all day. Played most of it on a booking and was lucky not to see red.Moses Waiswa 6.0: Waiswa looked a shadow of the player he has been in the recent past. Looked tired from the onset and i for one, was not surprised when he was taken off early in the second half.Abraham Ndugwa 7.5: Tried to make things happen down the left and finally got his reward, scoring the winner at the start of the second half. Was substituted moments after scoring.Tito Okello 7.0: Wasted several opportunities on Wednesday but his energy was pivotal throughout the day.Daniel Sserunkuma 7.5: Sserunkuma barely got a sniff on goal but held up play magnificently and played-in his teammates when it required. He may not have scored but put out a performance his coach must be proud ofSubstitutesDavis Kasirye 4.0: Wasted a glorious opportunity to hand Vipers a 2-0 lead and always looked a lost sheep on the pitch.Noah Wafula 6.0: Played in Kasirye for the missed chance and was full of running from the time he came on.Ibrahim Kiyemba N/A:Comments Tags: Al MerreikhCAF Champions League 2018/19vipers sclast_img read more

New youth refuge for inner city Melbourne

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Disadvantaged youth are set to benefit from a $25 million investment in accommodation for the homeless, with potential for a new place to call home. According to Minister for Housing, Martin Foley, $3.5 million will be put towards the development of a new three-story youth refuge located in Melbourne’s inner city. “Young people find themselves homeless and in need of help for a variety of reasons – this refuge will provide the first step to finding an alternative to life on the streets,” said Mr Foley.If all goes ahead, the refuge will be ideally located on King Street and will help in removing young people from the immediate dangers of homelessness with an outreach service encompassing both accommodation and integrated specialist services.“It is important young people get help as soon as they need it, with research telling us that if young people experience homelessness they are more likely to be homeless in the long term,” he explained.But the support won’t end there. Mr Foley said he recognises young people will need continued help and support as they exit the facilities and transition into more stable and long term accommodation to ensure they don’t come to face the same issues in future.“I’m determined to work with partners like Melbourne City Mission to make a real difference to people’s lives – those partnerships are key to meeting the challenges we face in addressing homelessness,” said the minister.Melbourne City Mission has been working with Victoria’s disadvantaged and vulnerable communities since 1854, and is the largest provider of homelessness services to young Victorian’s aged 25 and under.last_img read more
