Arua Hill thrash KCCA 

Saturday result

Arua hill 3-1 KCCA 

Arua Hill moved straight into fifth place on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) table after just one match of the campaign, thrashing visiting KCCA 3-1 at the Barifa Stadium in Arua on Saturday.

Debutant Isaac Ogwang and Rashids Toha and Kawawa were on target as the Kongolo avenged last season’s loss to KCCA, the only home defeat they suffered all season.

The victory has the Kongolo in fifth on three points, with KCCA – who opened their season with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Wakiso Giants, dropping right below them.

Arua Hill were playing their first game of the season because a 15-team fixture list can only accommodate 14 on a given Match Day. 

The would-have-been 16th team, Kyetume, were demoted after they failed to meet minimum licensing requirements.

Ogwang, a new signing from SC Villa, scored put the hosts ahead inside twelve minutes before Toha doubled the advantage two minutes after the break.

Kawawa then wrapped up things with a third on 58 minutes before KCCA got a late ‘one for the road’ courtesy of a Bright Vvuni own goal.

KCCA next face title rivals Vipers on October 22 while Arua Hill host Maroons on the same day.
