Walusimbi strikes late to deny Police third straight win


Police 2-2 Maroons

Lowly placed Maroons FC fought to salvage a point against Police in a four goal thriller at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo on Sunday.


Juma Balinya scored a goal in each half before substitute Solomon Walusimbi struck late to deny the Cops their third straight win.

Prior to this match, Police had won their previous two matches with an identical scoreline of 2-1 against new comers Ndejje University and Nyamityobora.

Balinya drew first blood for Abdallah Mubiru’s men 5 minutes off the half hour mark with an exquisite finish.

Rashid Agau levelled matters in the 59th minute courtesy of his third goal of the season.

Balinya restored the lead for the Cops 10 minutes later with a superb header off a Ben Ocen well laid delivery.

With the game destined to end in the favour of the hosts, Walusimbi tied the contest with a fine finish right at the death. Walusimbi had earlier on replaced an ineffective Dan Wagaluka.

A point earned doesn’t make any changes on the table as Maroons stay bottom placed with 2 points while Police remains 9th with 7 points.

Next on card for Maroons will be a home duel against Asaph Mwebaze’s Onduparaka on Wednesday 7th November. Police will play hosts to Tooro United on the same day.
