Police football club secured a comfortable 2-0 win against BUL on Tuesday 16th February 2021 in the matchday seven of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at the MTN Omondi stadium.
The three points earned pushed the corps to the top of the table of sixteen clubs log having collected 16 points so far.
Johnson Odongo opened the score in the 68th minute following a goalless stalemate at halftime. Odongo was also announced man of the match.
The corps showcased a beautiful and demanding display after finding the net which put the visitors under pressure and it took only eight minutes for them to concede the second courtesy of Brian Mayanja Muluuli. At 2-0 down the mountain looked to high for BUL to come back into the game.
Meanwhile, the defending champions, Vipers who was at the top for less than a week narrowly salvaged a late away point thanks to Yunus Ssentamu’s late equaliser from a free-kick.
Ssentamu had levelled before in the 21st minute for the Venoms to cancel Yusuf Ssaka’s goals which had put Kyetume in the lead in the 12th minute.
Richard Matovu shot home to put the hosts in the lead just five minutes into the second half of the game. At this moment things seemed to be difficult for Fred Kajoba’s boys with Kyetume proving hungry for more but Denis Kiggundu made brilliant saves.
However, in the 89th minute, Ssentamu again came to the Venoms rescue with a spectacular free-kick making it 2-2 to robe a point from the hosts.
Elsewhere, UPDF continued with a winless run since the resumption of the league from the break after losing to Onduparaka 1-0 in Arua.
Living Kabonge’s counter-attack goal was enough to secure 3points for the caterpillars and also putting them to the 5th place with 12points just four points behind the table leaders.
