At Kakindu, two penalties decided the game in favour of Kirinya Jinja SS as they saw off visiting The Saints with a 2-0 defeat.

The first came as early as the fourth minute when a foul in the area saw the referee point to the spot and Bashir Mutanda, on loan from Vipers made no mistake.

The hosts won another penalty with just a minute to the 90 and George Ssenkaaba, formerly at The Saints stepped up to seal the win against his former paymasters.

Maximum points take the Students’ tally to 16 but remain in the relegation zone in 14th while The Saints are 11th with five points better.

At Wankulukuku, URA earned their first win of the second round with a 2-0 win over Lweza, a day after the Tax Collectors sacked their coach.

Feni Ali opened the scoring for the visitors who were under interim tactician, James Odoch in the 68th minute before Hamis Kiiza added the other from 12 yards after a foul in the area for his second goal since rejoining the club.

The four-time league winners jump to 5th on the log with 27 points while Lweza, whose Coach, Ibrahim Kirya, linked with a return to URA was in the stands stay 12th with 20 points.

Elsewhere, Vipers title credentials failed yet another test after drawing goalless with bottom of the table JMC Hippos at Namboole.

The two dropped points leave Vipers 3rd with 29 points while JMC Hippos stay at the base with 8 points.

It was the second successive draw for Vipers who also failed to win at Express on Friday last week.
