URA FC captain attempts to go past SC Villa captain Shafik Kagimu

Uganda Premier League | Matchday 11 – Friday Results

  • SC Villa 1-1 URA
  • BUL 2-0 Kyetume

Sports Club Villa earned a point following a hard-fought one-all draw with URA in a Uganda Premier League duel played at Prisons Stadium, Luzira on Friday.

The game was only shifted to Luzira because of the appalling state of Namboole, the home venue for the two clubs in question.

Ambrose Kirya’s well-taken penalty spot cancelled out a 21st-minute opener from Brian Majwega, another penalty kick.

URA had taken the early lead when Yayo Lutimba felled down Joachim Ojera in the forbidden area and the day’s referee, William Oloya did not hesitate to point to the spot.

The Jogoos fought gallantly and earned a late penalty when Hudu Mulikyi pushed striker Faizo Muwawo in the area in the 91st minute of added time.

The Jogoos remain fourth on the 16-team log with 17 points.


The tax collectors are 10th with just 11 points fetched.

The state of the Luzira Prisons Stadium was left worrying with mud occupying most parts of the playing ground.

Meanwhile, the other UPL game played on Friday witnessed BUL overcome visiting Kyetume 2-0 at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.

Kyetume even missed a second-half penalty that would have consoled them as they suffered a second successive loss having fallen 2-1 at Namboole on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the league returns with a couple of games on Saturday, 2nd November 2019.

Table leaders Vipers visit Busoga United at the Mighty Arena, Wakiso Giants entertain Express at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Wakiso and Bright Stars play Onduparaka at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.
