Full – Time: Entebbe F.C 1 – 2 Sadolin F.C (UPL)

Sadolin Football Club has strolled to their 4th Victory of the 2014/15 Uganda Premier League season after a hard fought 1 – 2 away victory over Entebbe F.C at Nakivubo Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The visitors took a well deserved lead after Norman Ogiki tapped winger Andrew Basooma’s well squared effort after a quarter an hour of action.

Four minutes later, Basooma himself scored in a similar fashion off skipper Allan Oryek’s ball from the left.

For the rest of the half, Entebbe F.C survived as Oryek, Ogiki and Farouk Muzaale had different opportunities to extend the lead but Entebbe F.C goal keeper, Ismail Sseruwanga was composed to threat any other goal.

The second stanza of the game was a complete contrast of the opening 45 minutes.

Three minutes after the game restart, Entebbe F.C skipper’s curling effort from a corner easily beat the entire Sadolin back line and fellow defender, Philly Lutaaya was at the right timing to tap the easiest of chances in the game.

The visitors thus resorted to time wasting tactics as early as the hour mark goal keeper, Muhammed Didi reaped a booking for that unsporting play.

Skipper, Allan Oryek, who looked exhausted after several lung bursting runs was later withdrawn for Fred Ssegujja as Entebbe themselves brought off enterprising winger, Alosious Lubega for Hussein Mubiru.

The game nearly turned nasty with late fouls from both team’s players and prolonged time wasting antics.

The final whistle was greeted by wild celebrations as Entebbe yet again succumbed to another loss – the 8th in 12 fixtures so far played.

The victory for Sadolin F.C marks their first back to back win of the season having beaten Lweza last week at Bugembe Stadium.

The recipe for the hard earned sweat is a leap from 13th to 9th on the log standings translated as the 4th win in 12 games.

Entebbe, who employed goal keeping coach Charles Okumu on interim basis remains glued on 6 points from 12 games played with just 3 goals on their mean account.
