With 20 minutes to the final whistle, one of the stewards was seen going to the bus before he picked something that was later handed over to the ball boy behind Vipers’ goal.

In no time, Vipers’ physiotherapist Micheal Lule rushed off the bench and got the stuff from the ball boy before he should it to the officials and the fans were left in awe.

Coincidentally after six minutes, Vipers doubled their lead through Nigerian forward Abubaker Lawal hence silencing Kitara’s huge crowd.
