Uganda Premier League
Wakiso Giants 1-0 Tooro United
Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium, Wakissha
Kefa Kisaala’s side secured their second victory of the Uganda Premier League with a 1-0 win against Tooro united at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium on Friday.
They beat URA 3-1 on matchday two after falling 1-0 in their league opener against KCCA FC.
Viane Ssekajugo’s header in the 64th minute proved the difference as the Purple Sharks extended their dominance over Tooro.
It was through Tom Masiko’s long ball that Vianne Sekajjugo connected past Chrispus Kusiime to give Wakiso a win at home.
Ssekajugo had a chance to double the advantage late in the game when he was put through on goal by substitute Duncan Sseninde but fluffed a keeper-to-beat chance in the air.
Earlier in the first half, Lawrence Bukenya collected a good ball from Masiko but shot over and wide.
Geoffrey Sserunkuma headed directly to Kusiima from Simon Namwanja’s assist as the Purple Sharks looked for a positive early start.
Hakim Ssenkumba tried scoring a free-kick but his effort went miles out.
Tooro United were blunt on goals like in Matchday two against Vipers SC at Kitende.
John Ssemazi fired wide and also missed from a counter-attack after a low assist from Godfrey Lwesibawa.
Tooro remains on three points following a win on matchday one against Busoga United.
Tooro will host Maroons on Tuesday, September 10th while Wakiso Giants have a trip to Muteesa II Stadium on Wednesday against Bright Stars.
It should be remembered that Wakiso has now beaten Tooro in three competitive meetings both in the Uganda Cup and Super Eight.
