KCCA FC lose a second game in a row to URA FC after taking the lead through their talisman Brian Aheebwa who has been in fine form since the start of this season. The game came in a time where the kasisiro boys were short on physical presence in their midfield, a weakness that was exposed by SC Villa in their previous game in Bombo. Though one can believe that this problem can be solved by a player who was on their bench today in Gift Ali.

On to the game, KCCA FC started off on a good note with chance for Ashraf Mugume in the 2nd minute where he dragged the shot wide and also had another saved by Nafian the URA FC in the 10th minute. After knocking on the door several times, Aheebwa broke the deadlock in the 26th minute after Andrew Kigozi teaming up with Sam Ssenyonjo to him up for the game’s first goal after Sserubiri lost possession to Kigozi.

After that goal, the game flipped and it looked like URA FC wanted it more and made their response loud through a Benjamin Nyakoojo header in the 31st minute from the corner kick. Two minutes later, URA FC were awarded a penalty after Sseruyidde was fouled in the area by Herbert Achai but Ivan Sserubiri skied the ball. Right after that action, Kagimu Shafik doubled the tax collectors lead again two minutes after the penalty in the 36th minute after a cross from Joackiam Ojera who has contributed to three goals in just two matches.In the second half, URA FC had good control of the game and maintained good shape at the back with Patrick Mbowa and the goal scorer Nyakooja proving to be a strong wall. This victory means URA FC moved to the head of the league with 11 points in five games while KCCA FC dropped to third and stay on 9 points.

In the other game of the day, Wakiso Giants played out 2- 2 draw with the Soltilo Bright Stars at the Kabaka Kyabagu Stadium in Wakiso to make it five draws in their fifth game of the season.The purple sharks looked like they had a upper hand and were putting on lots of pressure on the visitors. They had their first open chance in the 13th minute of the game with a good ball from Viane Sekajugo to put Amos Muwonge through but shot wide. The dorminant first half performance did not pay off for the purple sharks as the Soltilo Bright stars opened up the scoring through Joseph Janjali after a good run of play with one minute to end the game in the first half.

In the second half, we saw extremely entertaining football with three goals in it. First was Viane Sekajugo ‘s equalizer in the area in the 46th minute to bring the home side level. As they continued to press, the visitors were so resilient but later got a breakthrough in the 78th minute through a Ibrahim Kasule low strike at the edge of the box to double their lead. But like the previous Bright Star game, they scored in the stoppage time this time it was not by Ibrahim Kasinde but Ronald Ssempala.
