He doubled the scores with a great header on the half hour mark after Moses Sseruyidde’s inviting corner kick for a 2-0 lead.

Ojera made it three in the 36th minute with a thunderbolt after goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo’s assist.

Rwothomio got the fourth goal from Mukwala’s assist as Sam Timbe’s charges led 4-0 by the half way break.

In fact, it would have been 5-0 by the mandatory break but the off-side flag denied the former Edgars’ Youth, Vipers and Maroons forward.

Mark Nsubuga pulled back a goal with 10 minutes into the second stanza.

Mukwala returned to pile more misery for Tooro United in the 56th and 60th minutes.

Left back Derrick Ndahiiro assisted for the fifth goal as Mukwala completed his hat-trick and the sixth on the hour mark for the star performance as he equalled Vipers’ Yunus Sentamu for the most goals by an individual in a single match this season.

This was URA’s second victory in four matches which takes them to seven points and 9th on the 16 team log.

Tooro United, promoted from the second tier at the start of the season, has now lost four times in six matches.
