FUFA Super League Results (26th November 2013):

Kira Young 1 – 2 SC Villa – Lugogo

URA 2 – 3 KCCA – Lugazi

Bul- Bidco 2 – 0 Proline – Kakindu (Jinja)

Sports Club capped the FUFA Super league first round with a ‘giant leap’ from 9th to 7th place on the log following their 1-2 away victory over Kira Young in a match marred by mild violence at the Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo in Kampala on Tuesday.

FIFA referee, Brian Nsubuga nearly abandoned play in the 73rd minute of the game as suspected Villa fans started to throw stones on to the field of play, many of which targeted a Kira Young player and the assistant referee on the first side of the stadium.

Before that, It was a calm game played on a water logged surface after an evening down pour. Yudah Mugalu put the visitors in the lead with a 4th minute strike before Captain, Baker Lukooya’s 43rd well converted penalty (awarded after defender Robert Kabanda handled the ball in the forbidden area) for the opening half to end all square.

S.C Villa, who were missing Cranes players (Godfrey Walusimbi and Emma Okwi – had also received a red card against CRO) returned a better side in the second half and their endless attacks to the Kira Young goal paid dividends as Ronald Muganga’s looping header after 8 minutes after the break easily beat Ashadu Bugembe in Kira’s goal posts.

“We have trained hard and finishing 7th in the first round is not a bad position, after a sluggish start”, Steven Bogere, SC Villa’s head coach remarked after the game.

In Lugazi, goals from Ivan Ntege.Tony Odur and Tom Masiko helped the traveling Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) win over the tax collectors, URA. Owen Kasule had recorded a brace for coach Paul Nkata’s team before a late unforced error from the host’s goalie Allan Owinyi gifted Tonny Odur the ball to square for an unmarked Matisko who made no mistake to tap home from just 5 yards.

The victory propels KCCA to third with 27 points while URA drops a place down to 8th (on just 23 points).

At Kakindu Stadium in Jinja BUL-Bidco who played the game without their head coach, Kefa Kisala and first choice goal keeper, Franco Oringa,  who are away for official duty with the Uganda Cranes in the Go-TV CECAFA overcame Proline 2-0 with goals from Patrick Asiku and Joshua Masene for the home team cheered .

Proline’s director, Mujibu Kasule missed his won team game as he was at Lugogo for the Villa – Kira Young tie. Action returns next week as Kira Young, Simba and KCCA have a game to play.
