Maroons cruise to a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Paidha Black Angels


Second half goals from Rashid Agau, Pius Obuya and substitute Bronson Nsubuga sealed it for Maroons FC in their superb victory over Paidha Black Angels to register their 5th win of the season.

The first period had less action with both sides hardly creating any chances that could lead to a break through.

Coming back into the second period, the hosts brought in Isaac Otto for Herman Wasswa.

Rashid Agau opened up the day through a long range shot off a Solomon Walusimbi well delivered cross putting the Prison Warders in the lead.

John Nsubuga nearly levelled matters in the 58th minute only for his effort to go wide left with goalkeeper to beat.

Pius Obuya extended Maroons’ lead through the spot minutes later after substitute Bronson Nsubuga was brought down in the forbidden area.

Bronson had replaced Rashid Agau who left the field of play limping after sustaining an injury.

Dickens Okwir had a chance to pull one back for the visiting team but Emmanuel Akol was too good to give him a break through.

It was in the 85th minute that Branson Nsubuga sealed it off scoring the 3rd giving Maroons FC maximum points .

Robert Ssekyeyama, the stand in coach Maroons Fc showered his players praises during the post match press briefing, thanking them for the fighting spirit and he believes the result is going to motivate them a lot as they play their next opponent away from home,

” We did our homework so well hence the result, It has not been an easy result but my players played their hearts out taking every game as a cup final will help us get positive results.”

Despite maximum points Maroons remain 13th with 22 points as the Blacks remain 15th on the log of 16 on 13 points.

They are to play next on Friday 1st – March as Maroons will make a long trip to Arua against Onduparaka FC and Paidha Black Angels visit Mbarara City at Kakyeka Stadium.
