KCCA FC is in celebration mode following a victory against the defending champions Vipers which was cut short by the prisons side Maroons FC on Friday after stunning the Kasasiro boys 1-0 in the Star Times Uganda Premier League at Luzira prison ground.
Fred Amaku’s 65th minute goal was the difference between the two sides at full time giving the home side a redemption from the previous 3-0 defeat to Arua Hills.
As expected, the Kasasiro boys possessed the ball but struggled to convert opportunities created to the back of the net with the best chance being a penalty awarded to them following a hand ball by David Ndihabwe but the Congolese striker Tshisungu Kankonde hit the woodwork.
Later when Amaku served Morley Byekwaso’s boys with painful test, KCCA failed to respond hence Amaku being the hero of the day before the home fans.
The victory puts Maroons in third place with eight points while KCCA drops to eighth place on the table with six points.
Elsewhere, Express FC beat Onduparaka 2-1 at Bombo military barracks ground to secure their second win of the campaign.
Dangerman Marvin Oshaba and Daniel Shabene saved the day for the Red Eagles while James Oketch score the only goal for the Catapillars
The Red Eagles are now in forth place tied on point with third place Maroons at eight points while Onduparaka are still winless and bottom of the table with one point.
Meanwhile, John Katende inspired sports club Villa past relentless Busoga United in a 1-0 victory at Muteesa II stadium, Wankulukuku.
Katende who came in as a substitute in the 65th minute replacing Goffin Oyirwoth found the net for the joggos in the 85th thanks to the beautiful assist from Ivan Bogere.
Victory moves the joggos to the second place at ten points behind BUL with eleven while Busoga United has three points placing them in the 12th position.
