Martin Kiiza produced a stellar performance as SC Villa cruised to a convincing 3-0 win over URA FC.
SC Villa needed to a positive reaction after going 3 matches without a win and URA provided that platform for them.
URA FC appeared the more hungrier side of the two with more possession but it all counted for nothing as they failed to make any attempts to find a goal
With 6 minutes to the break, the lively Ambrose Kirya showed great composure and precision when he controlled along pass from Martin Kizza and he directed it straight to goal but the woodwork came to Mathias Muwanga’s rescue.
On returning for the second half, Wasswa Bbosa introduced Yubu Bogere for the misfiring Godfrey Lwesibawa, Nkata also introduced Hudu Mulikyi for Nicholas Kagaba to tighten up his midfield.
On the hour mark, Martin Kiiza took matters into his own hands when picked the ball close to the half way line, dribbled past the oncoming URA defenders and he sent a thunderous shot that glided past Mathias Muwanga.
Moments later, SC Villa were awarded with a penalty after Mathias Muwanga fouled Ambrose Kirya inside the area, Martin Kiiza stood up for it and he sent Muwanga the wrong way to extend Villa’s lead.
With clock ticking down, Yubu Bogere put the icing on the cake as he tapped in from George Senkaba’s deflected shot to seal all 3 points for Villa
Villa climbs back to the top of the table with 36 points accumulated from 18 games. URA remains 8th on 23 points.
SC Villa will make a trip to Mwererwe to take on Bright Stars in their next fixture on 3rd March. URA will host Police at Namboole on the same date.
