Asaph Mwebaze’s Maroons side won their first game in four fixtures as they beat rivals Waters F.C in a Luzira derby played at Luzira grounds. A brace from George Opio Abege was enough to lift the prisons side over their neighbours.
The big man converted from the penalty spot after midfielder Tuliraba Alex was illegally brought down in the area in the 45th minute. Maroons who dominated the game doubled their lead when Abege completed his brace in the 75th minute after recieving a good ball.
Abege’s brace completed the fifth brace of weekend as it now stands Kadogo Wadri (Proline), Ceasar Sapeo (KCC), Robert Ssentongo (URA), Tony Odur (Bunamwaya) and Abege George (Maroons) all hit braces.
At Kakindu, Hoima-Busia succumbed to their third consecutive defeat at the hands of Victors F.C. Eric Ssebuguzi’s 54th minute strike opened the scoring for Sula Kato’s side with Karim Ndugwa sealing a confortable win four minutes later.

As for Hoima-Busia’s Oguttu, he blamed fatigue. “We’re playing so many games with out a rest and its beginning to eat up my boys”, a sad Oguttu lamented. Victors climbed to tenth place on 21 points while Hoima-Busia remain bottom of the 16 table with 4 points in 5 games, one behind relegation candidates Utoda F.C.
