UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE:
SC Villa 1-0 Bright Stars F.C
16 time record league winners, Sports Club Villa picked their 9th season of the 2014/15 campaign, winning 1-0 over debutants, Bright Stars F.C at their dreaded Mityana Ssaza grounds on Friday.
Stocky midfielder, Steven Bengo struck a stunning first half penalty kick that followed a foul on Nigerian import, Victor Emenayo in the 17th minute.
SC Villa would have doubled the lead had striker Erias Ssekisambu not been wasteful on the day, fluffing chance after chance.
Despite the victory, SC Villa, coached by Sam Ssimbwa still lie 5 points adrift the leaders, Vipers F.C, who gritted their teeth to overcome a hard fighting Bul F.C 1-2 at Kakindu in a match characterized by tear gas.
