Moses Ndaula scored two minutes into the second half at Prisons Grounds, Luzira as Lweza overcame SC Victoria University 2-1 to survive relegation.

Hamza Kalanzi’s charges went into the game fully aware that nothing short of victory will take their survival fight to the last day but they didn’t disappoint.

Hassan Kikoyo put the visitors into the lead in the 26th minute but with four minutes to half time, veteran Asuman Alishe equalised for the already relegated side.

The two sides went into the changing rooms at 1-1 but the visitors had other ideas as they restored their lead two minutes after the break through Ndaula.

No changes to the score line were registered as Lweza moved to 34 points, six better than Simba who are just behind in 14th place with 29.

Simba 2-0 The Saints

At Bombo, a 2-0 victory over The Saints by the army side did little to save them from going down following a Lweza win.

Ivan Wava and Godfrey Wakaza scored in the first half but the win only added to points but not changed position.

Elsewhere, KCCA drew 1-1 with Express to clinch the title at Wankulukuku thanks to a similar result at Buikwe between Vipers and URA.

Vincent Kayizzi scored a penalty for the Red Eagles in the first half before Muzamiru Mutyaba tied the game with a well taken goal after 62nd minutes.

In Buikwe, the battle for the golden boot shaped the tie as Robert Ssentongo gave URA a lead on the 16th minute mark only for Erisa Ssekisambu to cancel it ten minutes later.

At Nakivubo, SC Villa played over 20 minutes with a man less but they beat Bright Stars 3-0 to move to fourth on the log.
