Following their aborted match against KCCA which saw defender Rashid Okocha recieve a lengthy ban, the Caterpillars hoped for a positive response to leave the drop zone.
Unfortunately for them, a side that hadn’t won a football match from the previous seven silenced them with a perfect victory of 2-1 and henceforth dragged them into relegation zone proper.
George Lutalo’s men are now 13th on the log, level on points with 14th and 15th placed Soltilo Bright Stars and Busoga United.
Shaka Ssozi and exciting youngster Edrine Opaala scored the valuable points for the Abbey Kikomeko side.
Ssozi’s goal came in the first 45 minutes whereas Opaala sealed the victory with a sniper’s shot just at the edge of the box in the 76th minute.
The hosts were reduced to 10 men in the 82nd minute with a send off to Sande Mulanda but Onduparaka failed to make use of the numerical advantage.
The Catepillars had two goals disallowed, one fell to Mansoor Safi Agu, and the other to Gabriel Matata deep in the second half.
Busoga held on to their victory and consequently only their 3rd win off the season.
Only Tooro United have won lesser matches than Onduparaka this term with a single victory.
They will hope to redeem themselves on the 8th of January when they visit Tooro United.
Busoga will visit Mbarara city on the 9th of January
