The final score of the second Nairobi derby of the 2012 season was in many ways significant.
First was the fact that Gor Mahia are now above AFC Leopards in the Tusker Premier League standings.
Second is the small matter of the bragging rights, on a sunny Saturday, go to Gor.
Third is the rise and rise of one Danny SSerunkuma.
Derby days are for the men with big hearts, the men who believe in themselves and know that they have the talent to kick anyone on the teeth.
At times, derbies provide a stage for players to come out and at last show what they can do.
That is the chance SSerunkuma took.
Since arriving from the Nairobi City Stars, he has inspired Gor to their present form. He has made a good team become excellent.
This will be up for debate, but in my opinion, Sserunkuma has had more impact on Gor's challenge than Rama Salim.
Takes away players
Rama is the playmaker, the show boater, the magic pass provider. He is a Xavi Hernandez at Barcelona.
Sserunkuma on the other hand, is Lionel Messi.
He strikes fear into opposition defences and when he has the ball, they will all chase after him.
He is the perfect foil, if I may, for Rama and others around him to blossom, because he creates so much space for everyone with his brilliant runs and positional play.
Wonder why Moses Odhiambo has come back to form?
In the first goal against Leopards, his positional play was excellent, as he was there on time to tap the ball home, but if you look closely, his presence caused Leopards all sorts of worry in the first place.
As for the second goal, well it was a genius one.
His sidestep was gorgeous and the hit, worthy of a derby day game, worthy of a derby win and worthy of a man of the match award.
When a player scores a goal and everyone of his team-mates claps in approval, that is a master piece.
Created by Danny boy.
Sserunkuma has shone previously in the league for Gor and City Stars, but on derby day, he shone while the whole world was watching and the stakes very high indeed.
He is now ready to take on the world, to be a superstar player, not just a good player.
Uganda Cranes calling? They should.
