GLADYS ZAWEDDE

Arua Hill SC and Gadaffi Football Club shared spoils in a two-all stalemate at Barifa grounds in Arua.

Super sub Ronald Bithum levelled matters in the last minute of the second half to help debutants Gadaffi go back home with a well deserved point.

Arua Hill SC captain Ceaser Okhuti gave the home side an early lead in the 2nd minute off Dan Birikwalira’s well delivered cross.

Okhuti lasted for only 17 more minutes and was replaced by Alfred Leku due to injury.

Gadaffi were determined and fought back for a leveller which came in the 27th minute when Mark Bamukyaye converted from the spot.

In the 57th minute Gadaffi were reduced to 10 men when Frank Mululi was sent off for foul play on Yakin.

Substitute Leku restored Arua Hill SC’s lead with 19 minutes to normal time.

With the game destined to end 2-1 in favor of Arua Hill SC, Bithum netted a last minute equaliser that saw Gaddafi smile with a point away from home.

Both teams will play their next games on Sunday 25th-April as the first round of the FUFA Big League climaxes.

Arua Hill SC will visit Paidha Black Angels at Bar Okoro grounds in Zombo.

The Soldier Boys will host fellow debutants Calvary at Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe.
