Maroons fight from a goal down to overcome Ndejje University

Sinan Rajab SENOGA

Maroons FC rallied from a goal down to beat Ndejje University 3-1 in a Big League encounter played at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje.

Towering defender George Akena gave Ndejje University an early lead but Maroons rallied through Norman Odipio, Fred Amaku and second half substitute William Kiibi.

Akena headed home perfectly from a well delivered free kick from Solomon Akodi in the 5th minute.

Maroons equalized in the added minutes of halftime through Odipio whose goal bound effort from outside the box took a slight deflection to beat goalkeeper Brandy Wokorach.

Two minutes into the second half, Amaku put Maroons in the lead with a close range finish from Solomon Walusimbi’s wonderful spadework.

The goal was Amaku’s ninth of the current season.

Ndejje desperately sought for a leveller but it was the Prison Warders who got another goal.

Kiibi, who had replaced Amaku, put the game to bed with a close range tap in following another wonderful solo work by Walusimbi in the added seven minutes.

Maroons maintained their second place on the table having garnered 25 points, two behind leaders Blacks Power who beat Calvary 2-0 in Lira.

Ndejje University remained 7th and will face Proline in their next game on Sunday 6th March at Lugogo.

Maroons will host direct rivals Kataka, who are third placed, in their next game on the same day.
