Uganda Premier League
URA FC 2-1 SC Villa
Arena of Visions, Bombo
SC Villa were subjected to a first loss of the season as they went down 2-1 away to URA FC on Saturday.
Converting his second penalty of the season, Derrick Ndahiro put Villa in the lead on 16 minutes.
However, the lead lasted just 14 minutes before URA equalized through defender Benjamin Nyakojjo at the half-hour mark.
Neither side could score a second before halftime and they went into the interval locked at 1-1.
Both side made changes in the first half but the game looked destined for a draw until Saidi Kyeyune happened.
In the second minute of the four added-on, the midfielder who had a stellar season-last, netted his first goal of the campaign to hand URA all three points.
This is the Tax Collectors’ first victory of the season and it takes them to five points in three games.
Sam Simbwa’s side also climb into 4th on the Uganda Premier League log.
For Villa, they drop into fourth with four points from their opening three games.
In their next fixtures, SC Villa are at home to KCCA FC on Tuesday, the same day URA FC takes on BUL FC away from home.
