Hamis Tibita inspired BUL FC to their 3rd win of the season, extending their fine form that has seen them move to 4th on the log, overtaking URA FC and Onduparaka.
Peter Onen’s men have developed a knack of yielding results under less pressure having won most of their points away from home.
They approached this game free of any baggage, facing a Maroons team that has only managed 1 point out of a possible 12 and needing nothing but victory to get their season off the mark.
It was the visitors instead who struck first when custodian Ashadu Bugembe recklessly failed to deal with a Yunus Sibira out of the box shot that Deogratius Ojok pounced on to put his team in an early lead.
Maroons picked themselves up and started to knit some attacking moves with Pius Obuya and veteran Dan Wagaluka being the brighter outlets.
Their efforts were to be paid off in the additional minutes to the halftime break when Herman Wasswa beat the offside trap to slot home a predator’s finish.
Enter the 2nd period, non of the sides looked too much willing to commit efforts and take the game but Maroons through Brian Majwega showed more intent to break through.
Maroons almost went in front in the 85th minute but Herman Wasswa’s towering header hit the cross bar and consequently cleared off by BUL’s Patrick Sembuya who produced a man of the match performance.
Maroons were made to pay for their lack of killer punch in the 90th minute when Hamis Tibita followed up on Daniel Shabena’s hard shot which Ashabu Bugembe spilled over in his way to seal all 3 for the visitors.
Maroons will continue their quest for the first season victory, on Sunday 4th against Police FC whereas BUL host Ndejje University on 3rd November at the Njeru technical center
