Soana FC have picked their first point of the season after playing to a 1 all draw at Kavumba recreation grounds.
Bright Stars who did not have their head coach Fred Karina due to suspension came from behind to equalise thanks to a goalless from Captain Nelson Senkatuka.
Osman Wejuli had earlier put the hosts in the lead in the 55th minute after Hamuza Muwonge failed to charge of Baker Lukooya’s strike.
There was controversy in the last minute of the game when assistant referee Paul Turyamureba denied the visitors an opportunity to score a late winner by flagging offside to Nelson Ssenkatuka who had beaten the entire Soana defence with the keeper to beat.
Bright Stars now have two points and Soana have earned their maiden point of the season from 2 games. This has been their fourth drawn match in 5 meetings.
Soana will host Masavu in their next fixture on Tuesday 19th September while Bright Stars will make a trip to the west to face Mbarara City.
