Ronald Musana’s beautiful strike at the sunrise of the game ensured The Saints F.C leave the Villa Park grounds with all the 3 points in the bag after overcoming a hard fighting Baza Holdings in one of the 4 FUFA big league games played on Holy Saturday.
In a very physical battle played on a very soggy ground after an overnight down pour, the two sides kicked off the match with virtually the same mission at hand – to ensure the 3 points lest avoid any sort of defeat.
The visitors, perhaps implemented the agenda as they mounted pressure on Baza Holdings in the game’s opening stages and it was not suprising when Musana, a former SC Villa player broke the deadlock with an early finish cool finish past goalie, Godfrey Wakabu.
The rest of the game witnessed different raids from the two sides but no further score was recorded as the match ended 1 – 0.
