Tax collectors, URA FC on Tuesday won their first game in a stretch of five games after beating Onduparaka 2-1 at the Green Light stadium in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
A brace from former Paidha Black Angels captain, Cromwell Rwothomio was enough for URA to collect all the tax from the caterpillar at their own fortress in Arua on Tuesday evening.
Wahab Gaddafi converted a penalty but the goal was only enough to console the home side that went on to lose the game 2-1 courtesy of Sam Simbwa’s side.
Speaking shortly after the game, Ssimbwa praised his team for the deserved win away in Arua.
“We deserved to win this match because we outsmarted them all the way from the first whistle to the end. It’s a good win because we had taken long without winning,”Ssimbwa said.
Express beat Kyetume away
In another StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter, George Ssimwogere’s Express FC kept their first clean sheet this season when they beat new league entrants, Kyetume FC in a game played at Namboole stadium.
It was a Frank Ssenyondo 40th minute strike that ensured all the three points were bagged on a day the home side dominated play in the Uganda Premier League.
Speaking after the game, goalscorer, and man of the match-winner, Ssenyondo said the win against Police last week was a good motivation for them.
“It was not easy but we had that winning touch from our last game against Police so I was sure we shall kill this one off as well, “Ssenyondo said of the win that ensured the Red Eagles are now flying high in 7th position, above fellow Kampala rivals KCCA FC who are only two points above the drop zone in 13th position.
In other games, Proline FC’s woes continued to linger with another defeat, but this time at their own home in Lugogo in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
