The beauty of any football match is
often defined and galvanized by the goals scored.

Goals are the end products that
epitomize a football game, dull or electrifying.

At the 2019 Copa Coca football championship
going on in Jinja, goals have rained in different fashions.

From stunning long rangers, beautiful
loops, headers, free-kicks, penalties, simple tap-ins, deflections, rebounds and
sadly, own goals, all kinds of goals have been scored at the different venues
in Jinja.

The 21 top scorers after the group
stages share an overwhelming 129 goals.

Of the 129 goals, the duo of High
Standard Kateera and Jinja’s John Musenzi and Lawrence Tezikya have netted 11
goals apiece for a combined total of 22 goals.

With High Standard Kateera already
eliminated, Musenzi has no chance to add to his personal tally.

Jinja S.S’ Tezikya with 11 goals is
in the running having guided his side through unbeaten in six games with 100
percent record.

I thank my other teammates because football is a team work sport. I am ready to get more goals and help my school win this championship at home

goals to his name tag followed by Ronald Alyenyo of Kashenyi SS with 8 goals.

Loro S.S aggressive striker Ambrose
Owani has 7 goals including a brace against Mbale Progressive in their final
group game.

Three players are on six goals apiece;
Emmanuel Jowang (Bulo Parents), Araphat Ngyembya (St Kaggwa) and Mbarara High’s
Andrew Otim.

13 players share equally 65 goals
with 5 goals each, led by Buddo’s holding midfielder Hamuza Mulambuzi, St Mary’s
Kitende duo of Richard Basangwa and Charles ‘Neymar’ Lwanga.

From the plain thesis and analysis of
the inter-play between the respective teams, the players are hungry for more

It will not be surprising therefore that the 20 goal mark can be easily attained.

The round of 16 stage gets underway on Thursday, 15th May 2019 before the quarter and semi-finals on Friday.

This championship will climax on Saturday, 18th May 2019 at Kakindu Stadium.
