Maroons applaud their fans after their 1-1 against SC Villa
By: Danito Nsubuga
It was a total meltdown at the Prisons Stadium in Luzira when Patrick Gonahasa pounced on a lack of concentration in the Villa defence to steal an unlikely point for the hosts.
SC Villa had taken an early lead through new found marksman Yubu Bogere in the 7th minute of the first period. Bogere tapped in Abel Eturude’s goal bound shot to take his season tally to 2.
SC Villa who looked in control of the game failed to create any more serious chances which saw Maroons find their foot and grew in confidence.
In the second period, it was Maroons who opened with reshuffles with the introduction of Pius Akena for Solomon Walusimbi and Pius Obuya for Ronald Kikonyogo in the 55th and 57th minutes respectively.
Wasswa Bbosa counter acted by introducing Mahad Yaya Kakooza and Farouk Musisi to ensure they kill off the game but a goal could not easily come by.
Villa’s prolifigacy in front of goal was made to be paid for in the 3rd minute of added when Patrick Gonahasa capitalised on reckless mistake by Villa Captain Bernard Muwanga and John Adriko who failed to clear the ball off the line when Samuel Kivumbi was already beaten.
SC Villa’s woes on the road continue with that point against Maroons being their first this season. Their next fixture will be at home as they host defending Champions KCCA FC.
