Tooro United Avoids Defeat
After putting his side into an early lead, Mukwala came close to doubling the lead but his shot was parried out into a corner.
Walusimbi also had a big chance to extend the score but with a keeper to beat, he drove his effort into the side-net.
Just before the break, Kasibante utilized his side’s only first half chance when he tapped in an equlizer from Yafesi Mubiru’s powerful left cross.

Tooro proved a better side in a second Stanza, enjoying most of the possesion, creating a couple of clear chances including Yafesi’s goal keeper to beat which was denied by a cross bar after demostrating good footwork.
Bamweyana made three substitutions of Fred Amaku, Ceaser Olega and Nsubuga Bronson who replaced Solomon Walusimbi, Sylvester Okello and Emmanuel Olinga in that order but there is nothing they could do as the side failed to get a breakthrough.
A point has moved maroons to 9th place on the table with 24 points from 20 games, and they will make a trip to Lugogo to play KCCA FC in their next league encounter.
Tooro remain in the Red zone, but a point sees them leapfrog Proline from rock bottom to 15th with 16 points.
They will host Wakiso Giants in their next encounter.
