Last Saturday, Ofoyrwoth Isaac was part of the historical squad that guided Busiro FC to a maiden Masaza Cup title.
Ofoyrwoth gave Busiro the lead in the 43rd minute against defending champions Buddu in a 2-1 victory in the final played at a fully packed Mutesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.
Ofoyrwoth played a key part in Busiro’s triumph after scoring four goals for the first-time champions.
During an exclusive interview with The-SportsNation, the Nsambya forward opened up on the joy of winning the Prestigious gong.
“The feeling was unmatched,” Ofoyrwoth started.
“But what I can say is that it is my best moment in the Masaza career as a player.
“My heart is filled with joy and happiness for the people of Busiro who had been eluded by this tournament after recently losing to Buleemezi in 2019.”
It’s every striker’s dream to find the back of the net and the former Police FC JT striker admits that his opener was the turn around in the final.
“When I scored in the 43rd minute, I was happy because we as a team can build on that in the second half, generally the goal gave us confidence as a team that we can do it.”
Ofoyrwoth adds that he had the superstition that they will come out on top.
“Actually, before the final I had a voice in my head saying this is your time to write your own history, you have to take this chance and when the chance presented itself to me I took it with great pleasure.”
The Uganda Christian University Student says he was confident heading into the final because of the rich stats in the campaign.
“I knew that we would win because we were the best side having won more games and scored more goals than any other team.”
Ofoyrwoth admits that the words of encouragement he received from Coach Simon Peter Mugerwa pushed him a lot.
He also commended coach Iga Ronald of Hampton warriors soccer academy and Coach Boban of Nsambya SC
“The coach told me to lift myself and when I do so the team shall definitely follow suit.
“Of course I had the pressure to perform but am glad I didn’t let the coach down.
“I urge all Busiro fans to rejoice as much as they want because they have now joined the list of Masaza Cup winner.”
The Masaza Cup winner is left with one year to play in the tournament, scored eight goals for UCU in the University Football League last year helping them to a third place finish after overcoming MUBS 4-3 on Penalties.
They were ejected by Uganda Martyrs University Nkozi in the Semi finals.
