The Saints 1-1 Proline
Vipers 2-0 Soana
SC Villa 1-1 KCCA
Onduparaka 0-0 Sadolin Paints
Bul 2-1 Lweza
Advantage in the title race swung in KCCA’s favour after the side picked a vital draw off rivals SC Villa in Masaka.
The two sides went into the game tied on same points but Mike Mutebi’s side, top of the log due to a better goal difference with three games in hand.
The Jogoos played better football in the first half but wasted a couple of goal scoring opportunities thanks mainly to Benjamin Ochan who twice shut out Emmanuel Okwi and Denis Rukundo who cleared off the line.
The tie changed in the second half with KCCA gaining momentum and took the lead three minutes when Geoffrey Sserunkuma headed home from close range after Samson Kirya failed to tame a shot from Brian Majwega.
SC Villa responded in the 73rd minute when Ochan brought down Farouk Musisi in the area and Okwi sent him the wrong way from 12 yards.
In the end, it was a 1-1 draw as the Kasasiro stayed on top on 48 points, same as the Jogoos heading to the business end of the campaign.
On the same day, Villa Oromchan scored twice for Bul to win 2-1 against Lweza who got their consolation through Owen Kasule.
At the Green Light stadium, Onduparaka couldn’t break down a resilient Sadolin Paints as the two teams played to a goalless stalemate, a week later after The Painters eliminated the Caterpillars from the Uganda Cup.
On Friday, Tony Odur scored twice to ensure Vipers returned to winning ways after three successive league games without victory.
The team beat visiting Soana 2-0 at St. Mary’s Kitende while in Bombo, The Saints could only afford a 1-1 draw with Proline.
