KAMPALA – Police FC recorded a 6-1 win over debutants Malaba Youth Sports Association – MYDA on matchday 20, where Uganda Revenue Authority – URA overtook defending champions – Vipers SC on the summit of the Uganda Premier League.
The Cops picked goals through lethal striker Ben Ocen, Brian Mululi, Frank Tumwesigye – who scooped the man of the match award as well as Muwada Mawejje in an encounter played at the Phillip Omondi Stadium – Lugogo, where Moses Batali scored the consolation for the vistors.
Tumwesigye was on target twice, starting within three minutes after the kick off whistle as Mululi added a second on the 13th minute mark. Tumwesigye was on target again, a minute later; and Mawejje made 4-0 on the 28th minute mark; and Mawejje register his second on the day and fifth for his team, with 15 minutes left on the clock to half time.
As the Cops seemed to be complacent, Batali took advantage – squeezing through a rather casual defence to score the lone goal for the Eastern border team.
Ocen added onto the Cops’ scoresheet ten minute from time after coach Abdallah Mubiru had made several changes.
At Kakyeka Stadium, the Ankole Lions won 2-1 over 16-time record champions – SC Villa in a game that could have gone either side, on the day.
Jude Ssemugabi put the hosts ahead with a top corner strike, 10 minutes into play but the visitors were celebrating an equaliser, 10 minutes after recess, courtesy of Geoffrey Wasswa superb finish.
The hosts were lucky on the day as Henry Kitegenyi scored in added time to ensure his side bagged maximum point at home.
At Kavumba Recreation grounds, the Sam Simbwa’s troops in the URA jerseys and hosts Bright Stars shared spoils following a barren draw. However, the result favoured the tax-collectors, who jumped onto the top of the 16-team table on 44 points, one ahead of defending champions – Vipers, who had, earlier on Friday lost 0-1 to Express FC at their own backyard.
The Red Eagles are third on the table with 40 points, three ahead of Police in fourth.
KCCA FC, who play Onduparaka FC, away in Arua on Sunday, are fifth with 34 points on the table standing of the folder where Kitara, who lost to UPDF 1-2, and MYDA are technically candidates of relegation to the lower division, next season.
