Mbarara City 2-1 SC Villa
Police 6-1 Myda
BUL 0-1 Busoga United
Soltilo Bright Stars 0-0 URA
UPDF 2-1 Kitara
URA’s goalless draw at Soltilo Bright Stars on Saturday saw them squander a glorious opportunity to open a two-point gap on Vipers SC at the top but it was still enough to return them to the summit.
This was after Vipers suffered a damaging 1-0 defeat to Express a day earlier as the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) enters the business end.
The taxmen now have 44 points, one more than Vipers. Express are third on 40 after their first victory over the reigning champions in five years.
But it is Mbarara City and Police that had most of the talking on the pitch on Saturday.
In Mbarara, the hosts followed their draw with giants KCCA with a special 2-1 win over 16-time league record champions, SC Villa.
A goal in each half by Jude Ssemugabi and Henry Kitegenyi inspired the Ankole Lions to all three points.
Emmanuel Alex Wasswa’s earlier equalizer turned out to be the consolation for the Jogoos.
This was Mbarara City’s sixth win of the season, which moves them to ninth on the log with 25 points.
Villa’s sixth defeat of the campaign has them in eighth on 30 points.
The game that rained goals happened at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo, where hosts Police pummeled strugglers Myda 6-1.
Braces from Ben Ocen, Brian Muruli Mayanja and a goal each from Frank Tumwesigye and Muwadda Mawejje continued coach Abdallah Mubiru’s brand of attacking football in full flight.
First half substitute Moses Batali scored the consolation for the Tororo side.
At Bugembe, Busoga United humbled hosts Bul 1-0 to move four points clear of Kyetume in the final relegation spot.
Ivan Wani prodded home on the hour mark off an inviting cross from the impressive Isma Mugulusi on the left.
The result leaves Bul 10th in the table, just five points off the drop zone. In Bombo, UPDF saw off visiting Kitara 2-1.
