GLADYS ZAWEDDE

Ceaser Okhuti’s long range effort in the 83th minute ensured maximum points for Onduparaka FC against their struggling neighbors Paidha Black Angels in the West Nile derby.

The blacks drew first blood in the 9th minute when Andrew Kidega calmly received a good cross from Skipper Cromwell Rwothomio to beat Nicholas Sebwato who had moved off his line.

Onduparaka Skipper Toha Rashid missed a glorious opportunity to level matters after falling to convert a penalty.

Coming back into second half Simeon Masaba introduced Ceaser Okhuti for Abel Eturude in the 50 minute adding more pressure on the Blacks.

Gaddafi Gadinho found the equalizer in the 56th minute through a well taken free kick outside the eighteen yards box.

With the derby destined for a stalemate, Ssekajugo provided a signature cross that Okhuti expertly controlled and powered home a thunderbolt that hit the net.

Sula Sekamwa, Francis Bithum and Skipper Cromwell Rwothomio of Paidha Black Angels were all cautioned in the 40th, 74th and 78th minutes respectively as defender Denis Okot was the only Onduparaka player booked in the 67th minute.

The victory puts the Caterpillars in 2nd position on 20 points, four points behind table leaders KCCA leaving Mohammed Kisseka’s side at the bottom of the log with 4 points after match day 10.
