SC Villa 2-0 UPDF
SC Villa continued their resurgence in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League with a 2-0 win over visiting UPDF at Akii Bua Stadium on Sunday.
Charles Bbaale and Ivan Bogere scored for Villa in either half. The Jogoos have now won three games on the bounce since losing 3-0 to log leaders KCCA.
The win has Villa in fourth on the log with 23 points from 13 matches while UPDF stay 13th with seven points.
Bbaale’s goal – his fourth of the season – came on 28 minutes while substitute Bogere, who came in for Seif Batte, got his in the final quarter of the match.
Villa’s eight wins in 13 matches would have them topping the log on 25 points but the record 16-time champions were deducted two points and as many goals as part of the sanctions over fan violence.
The other set of sanctions has them playing five home matches far away from Kampala in Lira at Akii Bua Stadium.
