Rwothomio on the brace as tax collectors outwit Cops

Sinan Rajub SENOGA

Mid-season transfer signing Cromwell Abang Rwothomio scored a goal in each half as URA edged Police FC 2-0 at the StarTimes stadium, Lugogo.

The former Paidha Black Angels’ skipper was on target in the 37th minute after Police’s Davis Mutebi failed to tame his effort.

Moments into the second half, Juma Balinya had a chance to level matters with his 20th goal of the campaign but was denied by the woodwork before James Alitho recovered to save the rebound from Basani Safi.

Rwothomio completed his brace at the hour mark and ultimately won it for the tax collectors.

URA’s head coach Sam Ssimbwa was sent off from the touchline after protesting against the referee’s decision in the closing stages of the game.

URA dislodge Tooro United to reclaim their third place status on the Premier League table with 50 points accumulated from 29 games.

Elsewhere, Patrick Kaddu scored twice in the first half as champions KCCA defeated already relegated Nyamityobora 2-0 at Kakyeka stadium in Mbarara.

Kaddu scored his first in the 11th minute from Allan Okello’s assist before heading home a Jackson Nunda ball at the stroke of halftime.

Mike Mutebi’s men were reduced to 10-men in the closing stages after Nicholas Kasozi was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Express were 3-1 winners over Bright Stars at Wankulukuku thanks to goals from Ibrahim Kayiwa, Ivan Ocholit and Tony Odur.

Bright Stars found their lone consolation through Express defender Hamis Batega who converted in his own net deep in the second half.

Vipers picked a slim 1-0 win over lowly placed Paidha Black Angels at the Bar Okoro grounds in Zombo, West Nile.

Brian Nkuubi scored the all important goal after tapping home from one of Ibrahim Tembo’s long throw ins in the 18th minute.

The game between Ndejje University and Onduparaka at the Arena of visions was rescheduled to Thursday at 2:00pm following a heavy down pour 20 minutes after kick off.

The league is set to climax on Saturday 4th May with eight fixtures.
