Halid Lwaliwa scored the all important goal as Vipers SC edged Onduparaka FC 1-0 at the St.Mary’s Stadium in Kitende on Tuesday.

The Vipers captain was making a return from injury and this was his first game of the current campaign.

Lwaliwa headed the home side a perfectly delivered Bright Anukani free kick at the stroke of halftime to send the limited Kitende faithfuls into a frenzy.

The game produced limited goal scoring opportunities though Vipers were dominant in possession.

Forward Muhammad Shaban made a return to his former paymasters but the return ended in defeat.

Onduparaka have now suffered back to back defeats and have not scored a single goal in their previous three league games.
