KCCA earn first point

In other games elsewhere, 13-time record champions, KCCA FC earned their first point when they were held to a one all draw by Arua Hill away in Adjumani.

The visitors were down as early as 15 minutes, thanks to a Gadafi Wahab goal as the Kasasiro Boys continued to struggle.

At the stroke of half time, the visitors managed to restore parity when Filbert Obenchan scored the much-needed goal to ease pressure on interim coach Jackson Magera.

KCCA however got another shock when defender Peter Magambo was shown marching orders in the 82nd minute after receiving a second booking.

The Kasasiro Boys however managed to contain the game until the final whistle to ensure they earned their first point of the season after six games.

However, KCCA FC remained at the rock bottom of the table with only one point.
