Vipers SC 2-2 KCCA
UPDF 2-1 Soltilo Bright Stars
Arua Hill 3-1 Tooro United
FUFA/Airtel Player of 2021 Bobosi Byaruhanga capped his good weekend with an electric strike to help Vipers SC rescue a point in the 2-2 draw with KCCA on Sunday.
A day after beating teammate Aziz Kayondo and Express striker Eric Kambale to the MVP gong Saturday, Byaruhanga levelled matters as the clock ticked down at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
KCCA youngster Sadat Anaku and new signing Yasser Mugerwa had twice given the visitors the lead, with Caesar Manzoki scoring Vipers first.
In allowing Byaruhanga’s late intervention, KCCA missed out on an opportunity to stretch their lead at the top to nine points.
Coach Morley Byekwaso’s KCCA remain top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) table.
They now have 23 points, six ahead of second-placed Vipers. Vipers have, however, played one game fewer.
This was a game of high quality, with both teams hardly holding back. The goals were also equally exquisite.
Anaku’s fifth minute lead for KCCA was a ferocious drive on the bounce following a weak clearance by the hosts.
Manzoki responded for Vipers rather emphatically, finishing off a beautiful move involving Milton Karisa on the counter.
The guests were not done either, substitute Mugerwa restoring KCCA’s lead after a cut-back from Innocent Wafula on 51 minutes.
The stage was set late on for Byaruhanga on receipt of a poor KCCA headed clearance.
Byaruhanga nudged the ball a little forward before powerfully driving it in from outside the 18-yard area , the ball bouncing in from the crossbar for 2-2.
Elsewhere, the UPDF were 2-1 winners over Soltilo Bright Stars in Bombo.
Ezekiel Katende and James Begisa scored UPDF’s goals while Nelson Senkatuka got Bright Stars consolation.
In West Nile, Arua Hill thrashed visiting Tooro United 3-1, Alfred Leku, Samuel Ssekamatte and Innocent Media netting for the hosts.
Hussein Mwanje scored Tooro United’s consolation in the seventh minute of added time.
