StarTimes Uganda Premier League
Ndejje University FC 0-1 Onduparaka FC
Arena of Visions, Bombo
BOMBO – Ndejje University became the third and final team to be relegated from the StarTimes Uganda Premier League following a loss to Onduparaka on Thursday.
The Students who had proved sturbbon, to go down, eventually succumbed to the pressure after they lost 1-0 at home to the Caterpillars.
In the re-scheduled game which was played for only 20 minutes on Wednesday before it was washed out due to heavy down pour, it was Vianne Sekajugo who scores the only goal of the game. The match of Thursday was only played for 70 minutes.
The goal came so late in the game, with only two minutes to play as the left-footed forward calmly slotted home the winner.
With Ndejje fighting for their lives, like they have done in the last month or so, they were eventually caught on the break and made to pay dearly.
The loss confirmed Ndejje University’s relegation to the FUFA Big League.
They remain on 26 points, five behind 13th placed SC Villa with only a game to play.
Not even a win in their last game of the season can see the Students catch-up with Villa on the standings, hence going down.
Ndejje now join Nyamityobora FC and Paidha Black Angels FC as the three sides that will drop into the second tier of Ugandan football.
Ironically, all the three side were promoted to the top tier last season.
It is the first time in Ugandan football history that all three promoted teams are relegated back to the second tier the following season.
In their final games, Ndejje will be away to Kirinya JSS while Onduparaka host Express FC at the Green Light Stadium in Arua.
