KCCA were made to learn that the season will not be all about them but whoever will stand the hardest test and they came short of that against Vipers on Friday at Nakivubo Stadium.
KCCA had beaten Express 2-1 and earlier demolished JMC 3-1 looking the team to beat.
However, Mike Mutebi's plans failed in just 15 minutes of the start of the game when Tony Odur lashed on to a lose ball in their goal area to hand Vipers the lead.
It did not take long before Deus Bukenya stretch a long short flying past everyone to settle at the back of the net.
KCCA looked vulnerable and Vipers could have even gone further ahead but Hassan Wasswa after some neat works from Kezironi Kizito found himself with the Patrick Ochan to beat but fluffled the chance.
Mutebi without answers to Vipers play tried to reduce the damage by withdrawing Brian Majwega and later bringing on Geoffrey Sserunkuma saw the strike pull one back for his side.
KCCA's midfield triangle of Isaac Kirabira, Muzamilu Mutyaba and Ivan Ntege wasn't a match for the Vipers trio of Hassan Wasswa, Bukenya and Kizito.
With KCCA realising their midfield deficiency, they deployed aerial balls which were to their dissadvantage with Robert Ssentongo on a lone role.
