A 16th minute strike from Kambale Muhindo secured the 3 important points for BUL fc against traditional giants SC Villa at Namboole and consequently handed Douglas Bamweyana his first loss since taking over from Moses Basena.
From the onset, a visibly offensive Sc Villa made quite a number of attacks and with only 5 minutes into play BUL survived by a whisker when Bashir Mutanda’s long strike kissed the woodwork to deny the hosts an early lead with goalkeeper Paul Mujampani already beaten.
Slowly the visitors picked momentum into the game and only 10 minutes later striker Kambale Muhindo capitalised on Villa’s defensive errors when they negligently lost the ball in their own goal area and his shot hit the back of the net to put the Njeru based side into the lead.
There were very little efforts by halftime for the home side to equaliser or the visitors to score more.
Enter second period, SC Villa pressed hard but all in vain. Even efforts by coach Douglas Bamweyana to make a few changes didn’t pay off. Derrick Ndahiro came on for Charles Lwanga while Ajab Abdrahuman replaced Albert Mugisa but all in vain.
On the opposite side Douglas Owor replaced Deogratius Ojok and James Otim came on for Villa Oromchan whose day on pitch wasn’t eye- catching at all.
SC Villa now remains on 13 points and in the 13th position while BUL FC goes to 22 points and in the 5th position.
The next fixture will see SC Villa visit Police fc at Lugogo while BUL FC will host Nyamityobora on Thursday, 10th, January, 2018
