FUFA Big League 2018/19
-Water 1-1 Proline @Wankulukuku
-Kansai Plascon 2-0 Kitara @Bishop SS Playground
Proline missed a chance to go five points clear at the top of the FUFA Big League, Rwenzori group as they were held to a 1-1 draw away to Water FC on Wednesday.
In the game played at Wankulukuku under scorching sun, Water proved to be a hard nut to crack from the on-set.
The home side deservedly took the lead through former Maroons striker William Kibi at the stroke of halftime.
Proline who have topped the Rwenzori Group from the start of the season, had to wait until 55th minute for the equalizer which came off substitute Ibrahim Bonyo’s chest.
The forward chest-passed the ball into the net following a perfectly weighted ball from Richard Ajuna.
Bonyo had replaced Ibrahim Wamanah five minutes into the second half.
Proline now move onto 34 points from 16 matches, three points ahead of second placed Kansai Plascon.
In the other day’s game, Kansai Plascon registered a crucial 2-0 home win over Hoima based Kitara in the match played at the Bishops S.S playground in Mukono.
Robert Ssentongo Junior and Najib Gwaido scored a goal in each half to spur the painters to victory.
Kitara’s loss on the road in Mukono further extinguished their chances of a playoff slot.
