URA FC returned to winning ways with a 2-1 away win against Onduparaka FC at Greenlight Stadium in Arua.

Former Paidha Black Angels captain Cromwell Rwothomio scored a double while Wahab Gaddafi’s penalty proved to be a consolation on match-day eight.

The tax collectors had gone six games without a win since beating Maroons 3-0 in their league opener.

“We deserved to win this match because we outsmarted them all the way from the first whistle to the end,” said an excited URA coach Sam Ssimbwa.

“We did everything today, but am just disappointed that we didn’t score many goals. Its a good win because we had taken long without winning, I was actually very concerned.”

URA have now accumulated nine points while Onduparaka remain with 15 points but lose their top spot to BUL who stunned KCCA.

Mikidad Ssenyonga who had replaced an injured Yeseri Waibi in the 12th minute, released Cromwell who put the visitors at the half hour mark.

Cromwell doubled the advantage in the 51st minute after the hosts failed to defend from Said Kyeyune’s freekick.

Mikidad’s flick went over the bar while Ojera’s header off Shafic Kagimu’s delivery was also off the target for the visitors.

Former URA forward Vitalis Tabu was denied by Alitho James, Rashid Okocha shot wide and Bhetto’s header was cleared off the line.

URA face Mbarara City at Namboole as Onduparaka visit their bogey side KCCA at Lugogo.
