Uganda Cup defending champions and 12 time league champions Kampala Capital City Authority Football Club on Tuesday beat tax collectors, URA FC to end their unbeaten run in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
Going into the Tuesday game, the Lugogo side boasted of being the best free scoring team in the league whereas URA had the tightest defence but the latter notion didn’t count for the Kasasiro boys who put a goal past Sam Simbwa’s team.
A Timothy Awany 56th minute goal separated both teams at Namboole and proved KCCA are still on course for their mission of winning this year’s league title.
At Kitende, home side, Vipers Sports Club welcomed back coach Edward Golola by returning to winning ways when they beat Arua side Onduparaka by 3 goals to nil.
Goals from Dan Sserunkuuma, Geofrey Wasswa and Livingstone Mulondo were enough to ensure the Venoms recover from a slump as they intend to keep their title hopes alive.
Despite being unbeaten in the league, Vipers had not won a game in the last two games and winning the Tuesday game was a sigh of relief for the Kitende based team and Uganda Premier League defending champions.
This was Golola’s first game in charge as interim coach since being appointed again on the team over the weekend.
At Lugogo, record time champions SC Villa were held to a two all draw by Abdalla Mubiru’s Police FC.
A brace from on form forward Balinya was enough for the law enforcement officers to recover from their 6-3 humiliation by KCCA FC last week to match the Jogoos who had earlier scored twice through Charles ‘ Neymar’ Lwanga and danger man Bashir Mutanda.
The Tuesday games saw KCCA retain their position at the summit of the 16 team log on 33 points out of 16 games, four more than second placed Vipers SC who are on 29 points but with two games at hand.
Tax collectors, URA are third on the log with 24 points.
In the relegation zone, Nyamityobora , Ndejje University and Paidha Black Angels are 14, 15 and 16th respectively.
