*Proline FC 3-2 Maroons
Proline FC managed to pick a 3-2 laboured victory against Maroons in a StarTimes UPL game played at Lugogo.
Edirisa Lubega, Musitafa Mujuzi and Hamis Kizza were on target for Proline while Steven Mukwala and Solomon Walusimbi’ goals proved to be consolations for the tricky visitors who died fighting.
The win improves Proline’s survival chances but they remain rock bottom with eight points after 12 games. The side that had six points docked off, still have Police FC, URA and KCCA on menu to end their first round.
Maroons who had lost their last three games, suffer their fifth loss and remain on 19 points in seventh place.
Coached by Douglas Bamweyana, the Prions Warders host Vipers this Friday at Luzira.
Proline Edge Five Goal Thriller
Lubega ran onto Mujuzi’s long ball, held off resistance from Edward Kabona before slotting past Hannington Ssebwalunyo in the eighth minute.
Proline were two up in the 35th minute; Mujuzi scoring from the penalty spot after Ssebwalunyo tripped Lubega in the box to take a 2-0 advantage at halftime.
Mukwala halved the deficit in the second half, his 10th goal of the season, heading in from Abraham Tusubira’s freekick in the 52nd minute.
Proline made it three when Diego Hamis Kizza taped in Hakim Kiwanuka’s delivery from point blank range. Walusimbi made it 3-2 at the death and it was too late for the visitors to snatch a point.
Proline were good value for the whole points and could have scored earlier but Joseph Mandela failed to control Bright Anukani’s cross inside the box.
James Begisa also went close but rifled over the bar while Kiwanuka and Bunjo also fluffed their chances.
Bamweyana’s Maroons had Mukwala denied by Hassan Matovu while Felix Okot fired over the bar.
