Onduparaka Football Club overcame hard battling Maroons out-fit 2-1 at the Green Light Stadium in Arua on Saturday.

The Catarpillars scored their goals through veteran forward Samson Ceaser Okhuti and captain Rashid Toha.

January signing Bronson Nsubuga had struck the equalizer twenty minutes from full time to give the visitors some hope before the winning goal came 9 minutes from full time.

Towering skipper Toha scored in the very first minute of the game, for arguably the fastest goal of the season, to lead the opening stanza 1-0.

Maroons gallantly fought back and got the equalizer in the 70th minute through Nsubuga.

Onduparaka however, had the last laugh with Okhuti’s goal in the 81st minute.

The Caterpillars’ duo of Richard Ayiko and Gadafi Gadihno got cautioned by referee Emmanuel Kiweewa.

Gangly defender Martin Mpuuga was booked for Maroons.
