Uganda Premier League (Friday Results):
Tooro United 1-0 Ndejje University
KCCA 6-3 Police
Onduparaka 0-0 Mbarara City
Allan Kayiwa is a talisman of sorts at Tooro United Football Club.
Of times, he has lifted the club to greater heights with outstanding individual brilliance.
Such was the case as Wasswa Bbosa’s charges faced Uganda Premier league debutants Ndejje University at the Buhinga Stadium in Fort Portal on Friday.
Kayiwa struck a block buster from 25 yards in the 21st minute as they jealously protected their lead to the end.
This was the fifth league goal for Kayiwa in 14 games.
Attempts by Raymond Komakech to fight for at least a point hit a dead end despite introducing holding midfielder Bernard Katetemera for Peter Ouma as early as the 25th minute.
Later in the second half, creative midfielder Baden Mujahid (on loan from Vipers and Fredrick Male were also brought on board to no avail.
Bbosa whose last game was that goal-less draw away to Vipers also made the same change he called at St Mary’s a week ago, bringing on Baker Buyala for the burly center forward Steven Omvia.
Referee Joseph Ochom cautioned Ndejje University captain Ronald Odokonyero and Robert Eseru as well as Isa Lumu and Musa Mukasa for Tooro United.
Tooro United earned their fourth victory of the season, remaining in the 11th position with 17 points.
Ndejje University suffers their 10th loss of the campaign and drop to 15th on the log as they remain with only 8 points.
Tooro United winds up the first round at home against Bright Stars.
Meanwhile, Ndejje University will also play on the road, against Express at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium on Thursday 10th January.
