Proline Vs Onduparaka – Lugogo @ 4pm

A total of 14 goals were scored on the first day on the second round of the league with only one match failing to produce a goal.

That was in Champions stadium, Mwererwe where 16-time champions SC Villa fired blanks against hosts Bright Stars.

The Jogoos started with prodigal son, Emmanuel Okwi upfront but struggled to convert the few chances created against a well organised Fred Kajoba coached side on a sunny afternoon.

The visitors were the better side on the day but failed to capitalize with Alex Kitaata, John Adriko and Taddeo Lwanga all coming close.

At the other end, Fred Segujja should have punished Shafik Bisaso’s side with five minutes on the clock but arrived late and failed to connect with Kokas Opejo ball.

Despite the stalemate, SC Villa remain second on the log with 32 points while Bright Stars also stay 8th with 21.

At Lugogo, champions KCCA started off from where they left with a deserving 2-0 win over struggling Bul FC.

Geoffrey Sserunkuma opened the scores with his 10th goal of the season as early as three minutes while Muzamiru Mutyaba added the second in the 67th minute with a wonderful strike.

The visitors, 14th on the 16-team log with 14 points had to play over 28 minutes with a man less after goalie Brian Bwete was sent off.

The win, coupled with SC Villa’s barren stalemate in Matugga opens a three point gap for the Kasasiro at the top who now have 35 points.

In Lugazi, URA threw away a two goal lead in a 2-2 thrilling draw with JMC Hippos.

Youthful striker Peter Lwasa scored the opener on 19 minutes for the Tax Collectors before Hamis Kiiza, making his second debut for the club doubled the lead on the half hour mark.

Four minutes later, Hassan Musana cut the deficit with a goal from the penalty after a foul by Fred Okot in the area while Daniel Shabena ensured the spoils were shared with an equaliser in the 64th minute.

The four-time champions remain 6th with 23 points while JMC Hippos stay in the red zone at the base of the table with just five points.

At Namboole, Tony Odur and Deus Bukenya scored to give former league winners Vipers a 2-0 win over Lweza and the bragging rights in the Entebbe Road derby.

Following a goalless first half that the hosts dominated, the deadlock was broken in the 50th minute by Odur for his 6th on the season and Bukenya put the icing on the cake for the third placed Venoms with another in the 67th minute.

The loss leaves Lweza 9th with 18 points while Vipers leapfrogged Onduparaka to third with 28 points.

Elsewhere, at Nakivubo, Hood Kawesa and William Wadri scored in the first half to give Abdallah Mubiru a winning debut at Police as they deservingly beat visitors Sadolin Paints to move four points clear of the relegation monster with 17 points in 12th and now tie with Painters who are 11th.

At Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku, new team captain Ibrahim Saddam Juma scored on his debut as Express captain but Godfrey Wakaza replied with an equaliser to deny Matia Lule’s side maximum points.

The Red Eagles stay 7th with 23 points now, same as 6th placed with URA while Moses Basena’s The Saints are 10th with 18 points.

Kirinya Jinja SS salvaged a late point against Soana at Njeru Technical Centre as the two sides drew 1-1 in an entertaining draw.

Action continues on Wednesday at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo when Onduparaka pay a visit to Proline.
