Super 8: Ajab lone strike topples URA, sends SC Villa to semis

By: Sinan Rajub Senoga

SC Villa 1-0 URA FC

A 17th minute strike from Abdulrahman Ajab was the difference between a revamping SC Villa and Sam Simbwa’s URA FC in the Super 8 tie at Namboole.

Ajab orchestrated a move from 20 yards before receiving a well laid pass from Ambrose Kirya to slot in the all important goal against his former side.

Simbwa made a quick change bringing on former Villa man Vitalis Tabu for an unproductive Steven Munguchi to try to press harder.

The attacking force of Matthew Odongo, Peter Lwasa, Shafik Kagimu, Robert Omunuk, Tabu and the overlapping right back Dickson Kigongo could not find a breakthrough into the steady Villa defense commanded by Savio Kabugo, Habib Kavuma and Yusuf Mukisa.

URA FC line up

Robert Mukongotya was introduced for Matthew Odongo a minute into the second half but he could not make any positive change like his predecessor.

Basena introduced silky winger Ibrahim Mugulusi and Mike Serumaga to surge movements in the final third.

Ambrose Kirya put up a stellar show that saw him being named MOTM

At the end of the 90 minutes, SC Villa were able to hold on to their slender 1-0 lead hence becoming the 3rd team to book a semi final berth.

SC Villa captain Ambrose Kirya was named Man of the match.

The Super 8 tournament resumes on Saturday 11th when Ndejje University hosts Onduparaka in Luwero.
