KCCA reopened a three-point lead at the summit of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) following a 4-2 win over traditional rivals SC Villa at Lugogo on Saturday.
The visitors had lived with the 12-time champions toe to toe for the better part of the first half.
But resilient work ethic from Allan Kyambadde, one of the scorers, found Suleiman Mutyaba, who coolly put KCCA ahead on 43 minutes.
KCCA returned from the break even more ruthless, scoring three goals in 13 minutes as Mustafa Kizza, Kyambadde and Allan Okello – the latter from a penalty spot – all getting onto the scoresheet.
Villa did attempt a fight back when Charles Lwanga and Ambrose Kirya pulled two back but KCCA held on to clinch the six-goal thriller.
The victory moved KCCA to 48 points, three more than second placed Vipers.
The six goals at Lugogo were the highest accross the country on a day five matches produced 16.
Three more came from Bright Stars 3-0 victory over Ndejje University, Jamil Kalisa, Juma Ssebadduka and Brian Kayanja all scoring.
Caesar Okhuti’s first minute goal and another by Rashid Toha ensured a 2-1 Onduparaka victory over Maroons, who got their consolation through Bronson Nsubuga.
Steven Omvia’s lone strike in Fort Portal kept Tooro’s unbeaten home record with a narrow 1-0 victory over Police.
Kirinya-Jinja also pulled off a 2-1 win over Nyamityobora, Jerome Kirya and David Bagole netting for the hosts. Ibrahim Dada got Nyamityobora’s consolation.
