Wednesday result

SC Villa 3-1 Mbarara City

SC Villa picked their first win of the season following a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Mbarara City at Namboole on Wednesday.

David Owori, Emmanuel Kalyowa and Ambrose Kirya scored Villa’s goals while Brian Aheebwa got Mbarara’s consolation.

This was a great response from a side that lost their opening day fixture 1-0 to league newcomers Kyetume.

The victory moved Villa to seventh with three points on the 2020/19 StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) table. Mbarara, who beat Proline 3-0 in their opener, are in fifth five points.

Villa, the 16-time league winners, had only three substitutes for their game against Kyetume. On Wednesday night, they were better prepared.

Owori opened the scoring on 33 minutes before Kalyowa sent them to the break leading 2-0.

Mbarara pulled one back on 72 minutes when Ivan Eyam played on Aheebwa. But Villa Kirya killed the contest off when he tucked away Baashir Mutanda pass 15 minutes to go.
