Juma Balinya scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season to help Police Fc put to bed their unwanted record over Onduparaka FC.

Before today, the Cops had never picked a positive result against the Westnile side having lost on all the five occasions the two teams have met in the topflight.

The match started at a high temple with the visitors showing more intent of continuing with their usual habits.

Their early attacks however yielded nothing with Ceaser Okhuti and Vianney Sekajugo being the main culprits of the missed opportunities.

Police gained momentum by controlling more possession which yielded a free when youngster Ashraf Mugume got tripped down by Fred Okot at the edge of the 16 yards box.

Juma Balinya stepped up to it and he sent a superb effort which Nicholas Ssebwato failed to deal with and ultimately handing Police a deserved lead.

Whereas Onduparaka were still trying to collect themselves and return into the game, forward Basani Safi won another free kick for the Cops which that man Balinya expertly guided past the wall through the net for Police’s second.
