Caeser Okhuti celebrating his wonderful goal against Express FC

Striker Ceaser Okhuti came off the bench to score a stoppage time volley to snatch 3 points for Onduparaka in a 2-1 victory over Express FC at Wankulukuku

Early in the second half, Alfred Leku had given Onduparaka the lead when he flawlessly finished off a well orchestrated cross from Kabon Living in the 47th minute of the game.

After conceding, Express FC coach Douglas Bamweyana opted for a 3 man back line defense pushing many bodies upfront to pile more pressure on to the cattepilars when he brought on Deo Othieno for right back Ronnie Kisekka wilth Jjingo Sulaiman and Mike Birungi converting into wing backs.

Onduparaka  lost skipper Rashid Toha to an injury in the 63rd minute and he was replaced by Muhammad Rashid.

12 minutes later, Daniel Muzeyi Serunkuuma levelled the score line when tapped home a well delivered cross from substitute Mubarak Nsubuga, netting his 3rd consecutive goal of the season.

A desperate Express then put Onduparaka on the receiving end with relentless attacks in pursuit for the winner. Pacy winger Sam Galiwango was introduced for a weary Mike Birungi to surge the right wing but in vain.

Ceaser Okhuti then found a timely and exquisite goal for the visitors volleying home a beauty from Gadaffi Gadinho free kick in the 2nd minute of added time to clinch victory over his former side.

The win elevates Onduparaka to the league summit with 13 points and leaves Express lying 10th on the Azam Uganda premier league log.

Onduparaka will play host to Vipers in their subsequent fixture next week on Saturday in Arua whereas Express will make a long trip to the East to take on BUL FC on Friday.
