Police FC 2-1 Wakiso Giants
Kyetume FC 1-2 Vipers SC
Express 1-2 Busoga United
BUL 1-1 Bright Stars
Wakiso’s Purple Sharks on Tuesday failed to swim as they got detained by Police in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at Lugogo.
Abdalla Mubiru’s boys came into the Tuesday game on the backdrop of a poor performance that had seen them collect only two points from eight games but this didn’t deter them from surprising newly promoted moneybags, Wakiso Giants.
The visitors who started off the game well took the lead through Vianney Ssekajugo off a Hassan Ssenyonjo pass on the 17- minute mark but to cause misery for the cops
However, it was a game of two halves for both teams as Police that was almost a now show in the first stanza returned with a lot of energy in the second half.
In the 72nd minute, the Cop saw the back of the net for the first time in the game, thanks to Ben Ocen, to send their fans into frenzy.
Things were not yet done when Pius Kaggwa slotted home the second in the added minutes to ensure Abdalla Mubiru’s boys sealed the win against Wakiso Giants.
However, despite the win, Police remain 15th on the 16 team log with five points, whereas Wakiso Giants are 8th on 13 points after 10 games.
Vipers extend lead
At Namboole, Vipers SC’s lead strikers, Fahad Bayo and Dan ‘Muzeeyi’ Sserunkuuma were on the mark as Vipers beat on form new league entrants, Kyetume FC in another StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter.
Coming into the Tuesday game, the Slaughters had the meanest defence in the league but the Vipers forwards meant business when as early as five minutes they had seen the back of the net, thanks to a Fahad Bayo header off a Paul Willa cross.
Ten minutes later, the Venoms took the lead beyond reach when Sserunkuuma converted a penalty after Bayo had been brought down in the 18-yard box.
However, the Slaughters remained resilient that in the 56th minute they pulled a goal back and remained threatening to the Kitende based team until the end of the game.
The win ensured Vipers maintained their lead on top of the 16 team log with 24 points, four ahead of second placed BUL who were held to a one all draw by Bright Stars.
