Onduparaka 1-3 Vipers

Vipers Sports Club registered a comprehensive 3-1 victory away from home over Onduparaka at the Aba Bet Green Light Stadium in Arua City on Saturday, February 27, 2021.

Ibrahim Orit, Ceaser Manzoki and second half substitute Paul Mucurezi scored the goals for Vipers.

Living Kabon’s late kick from the penalty mark was the consolation for the home team whose head coach Villai Bainomugisha is still missing on the touchline.

Orit headed home the opener after a curling corner kick by Disan Galiwango in the 26th minute as the opening half ended one goal up for the visitors.

Second half substitute Mucurezi combined with Manzoki for the second goal towards the hour mark.

Galiwango was involved in the third goal with a cross from the left that was headed by Manzoki straight to the goalkeeper Michael Kagiri who spilled the ball over before Mucurezi tapped home.

Kabon scored a late consolation, a kick from the penalty mark on the stroke of full time.

This was Vipers’ first ever win over Onduparaka in Arua since the Catarpillars were promoted to the top flight league.
