URA returns spiking performance, dislodges Police FC  

The Azam Uganda Premier League had a successful completion of match day 19. There were four outright victories and four draws a piece in the eight games played.

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) returned to winning ways, earning a 2-0 victory against Police in the all Namboole affair.

January 2018 signings Moses Sseruyidde and Herman Nteza Wasswa scored two first half goals for Paul Nkata’s coached club in a rain laden match.

Sseruyidde converted home a cracking free-kick after Steven Mugisha had brought him down near the goal area.

Wasswa raced to Godfrey Sembatya’s through ball to finish off an acute angle. Sulaiman Majaanjalo scored off a kick from the penalty mark as UPDF continued with their impressive run in the second round.

UPDF won 1-0 against visiting Mbarara City at the Bombo Army Barracks.

Reigning champions KCCA required a Julius Poloto header off Mustapha Kizza’s teasing ball to win 1-0 against sturrborn Soana whom they had defeated with comfort 4-0 in the first round.

Fred Amaku was the hero at the Kyabazinga Stadium in Jinja when Kirinya-Jinja S.S pipped visiting Onduparaka 1-0.

The other four matches ended in stalemates. BUL was held by a 10 man Masavu to a 1 all draw at the Kakindu Stadium, Jinja.

Richard Wandyaka scored in the 26th minute but Masavu staged a gallant fight, equalizing through second half subsisitute James Kasibante.

Earlier, Masavu had been reduced to 10 men when right back Moses Kiggundu was sent off because of two bookable offences by Referee Ronaldie Kirangwa.
