Uganda Premier League (Match-Day 11):
Mbarara City 1-0 Tooro United
Top Bet sponsored Mbarara City Football Club outwitted Tooro United 1-0 on match day 11 of the Star Times Uganda Premier League on Tuesday.
Ibrahim Orit scored the day’s lone strike a minute to the half hour mark of the all-Western Uganda affair played at the Kakyeka Stadium in Mbarara.
Attempts by Charles Livingstone Mbabazi’s Mbarara City to safe guard the game with another score or visiting Tooro United to equalize fell on dead ends with resistant defence lines.
The Ankole Lions’ defender Hillary Mukundane was named the Pilsner man of the match for his outstanding display in the game.
This was Mbarara City’s 6th win in 11 matches, as they ascended by a slot to fourth with 20 points, the same number of points shared by Onduparaka who fell on the road, 1-0 away to BUL at the FUFA Technical center, Njeru.
Tooro United suffered their 5th loss in as many matches, remaining 11th with 10 points.
