Kataka FC stretched their impressive start to the Big League season with a 2-0 win over MYDA FC at the Mbale Municipal grounds on Sunday.

Defender Joel Anziku and second half substitute Markus Aka scored the goals for Kataka in the second half to ensure a comfortable victory.

Kataka had a number of glorious chances to take the lead in the first half but failed to put them away. Their star man Emmanuel Mukisa had his penalty saved by goalkeeper Isaac Osikol while Swamad Okur had his effort come off the crossbar.

The result meant that Kataka remain the only unbeaten side in the FUFA Big League and lead the table with 14 points, two better than second placed Maroons FC.

MYDA captain Geoffrey Serunkuma attributed the club’s poor run to the inability to have club camp prior to the match day.

” We are not proud of our current form but it’s unfortunate we have to travel long distances from where we train from and our home ground. We train from Kampala and host games in Tororo. If we can have our team in a camp then we shall be good to go.”

The veteran striker bemoaned.

Elsewhere, Calvary edged Proline 2-1 in a game played at the Greenlight Stadium in Arua.
