Onduparaka 0-0 Gadhafi
Bul fc 5-1 UPDF
Police 4-2 Tooro
A massive 12 goals in three StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) matches, the biggest average of the campaign at four goals per game rate, were scored on Tuesday.
BUL and Police were in unforgiving mood as they easily thrashed the UPDF and Tooro 5-1 and 4-2 in Jinja and Kampala respectively.
Their 5-1 emphatic victory over UPDF moved BUL to within a point below URA. Karim Ndugwa gave the hosts an early seventh minute lead, guiding in a rebound after Brian Bwete failed to grip a Martin Aprem shot.
Youngster Simon Oketch doubled BUL’s advantage 12 minutes later before Robert Omunuk pulled one back to give the visitors some hope.
But Ibrahim Kazindula’s penalty in the 71st deflated their pressure, with Oketch and Richard Wandyaka stretching the result beyond UPDF’s reach with the fourth and fifth late in the game.
Victors BUL now have 33 and are firmly in fourth place, one behind URA. UPDF have now failed to win a league match in 10 attempts and remain ninth with 22 points.
At Lugogo, Police moved further away from the drop zone with that commanding 4-2 win over Tooro United.
Juma Balinya gave the Cops the lead with a fine turn and calm finish before Tony Mawejje doubled the side’s advantage from another Ruben Kimera cross.
Ronald Magwali pulled one back for Tooro but Marvin Oshaba stretched Police’s lead. Again, Tooro dragged it back, Hussein Mwanje scoring from a penalty spot.
However, substitute Herman Wasswa put the game to bed, scoring a fine individual goal for Police’s fourth. Police go 10th on 21 points after 19 games, while Tooro stay bottom of the log with nine points.
