StarTimes Uganda Premier league
-URA FC 3-0 Maroons FC
-Bul FC 1-0 Express FC
URA FC defeated Maroons 3-0 in one of the three StarTimes Uganda Premier league games played on Saturday.
Strikes by Saidi Kyeyune and Ivan Ntege either side of a Ronald Orombi own goal did the magic for Sam Simbwa’s side.
It was a game that was dominated by the hosts from the very first whistle.
Kyeyune beat the offside trap and raced onto a Cromwel Rwothomio through ball before slotting past Emmanuel Akol to hand URA a deserved lead on 16 minutes.
Orombi who had had a decent first 45 minutes then turned an Ashraf Mandela teasing cross into his own net to double URA’s advantage.
Substitute Ivan Ntege the completed the route, scoring a beauty off Kyeyune’s assist. Ntege had replaced Mikidad Ssenyonga earlier in the second half.
The win sees URA sit temporarily top of the League, having a better goal difference than the other winners on Match-Day one.
URA return in action on September 3rd 2019 to face Wakiso Giants FC at Kabaka Kyabagu Wakissha Stadium While Maroons face Kyetume FC at Luzira Prisons on Tuesday 2nd.
At Njeru, Deogracious Ojok’s 13th minute strike was enough to hand Bul a 1-0 victory over Express.
Ojok was on hand to convert Hamis Tibita’s low pass, beating Tony Kyamera in the Red Eagles goal.
BUL could have doubled their lead at the half hour mark but Richard Wandyaka, from point blank range, bundled his chance over the bar while midfielder Charles Ssebutinde had his effort rattle the woodwork.
Frank Kalanda who was making his debut for Express, had a goal ruled out in the first half after the striker was deemed to have fouled Bul custodian Abdul Kimera in the build-up.
As Express pushed for an equalizer, their custodian Kyamera was stretchered off after suffering a nasty injury that could see him out for a while.
Bul finally held on and ensures they register their 4 successive victory at home to Express.
BUL FC next fixture will be away to Police FC on September 4 while Express FC will host Bright stars a day before.
Elsewhere, Vipers came from a goal down to beat Bright Stars 3-1 at Wankulukuku.
