Today Soana FC unearths itself from its coverlet. This comes after the club defeated Bright stars at Kavumba Recreation centre, thanks to Hamisi Kitagenda who scored a brace.

Bright stars first took the lead from John Cocas Opeyo through a penalty at first half. However, at interval, Soana came back more determined to overturn the lead and table. Their much concentration was too high with ball possession of more about 60%.

Soana dominated in all departments. This was from goal keeping, defense to the midfield and to the striking force led by Kitagenda. Kitagenda had been a very important player for the team ever since he crossed from KCCA.  In the dying minutes of the games, Bright Stars almost got an equalizer but Anthony Bogere failed to control the ball in the box.
