Action between Onduparaka and BUL
Wednesday, March 4
*BUL FC 4-0 Onduparaka FC
BUL FC compounded Onduparaka FC’s misery after a 3-0 win in a StarTimes UPL game at FUFA Technical centre in Njeru.
An own goal from Denis Andama, one each from Musa Walangalira, Fredson Gwoto and Joseph Ssemujju were enough to give the hosts deserved maximum points.
The loss, is the 12th the Carterpillars have suffered this season and the highest tally since joining top flight. They were beaten seven times in their debut season, lost eight in 2017/18 and nine times last season.

The Carterpillars remain winless in their last six league games since beating Busoga United.
BUL FC move to 36 points but remain in sixth as Onduparaka remain eighth with 31 points after 25 games.
The Carterpillars Offer No Resistance
In a game played under soggy conditions after a heavy downpour, the hosts were beneficiaries when Andama headed in his own net after a Joseph Ssemujju corner.
Walangalira doubled the advantage at the half-hour mark when he headed in after the visitors failed to make a good clearance out of danger.
Gwoto made it three at restart, slotting home past a poor Yusuf Wasswa thanks to a beautiful cut-back by Ssemujju from the left flank.
Ssemujju put an icing on cake with a wonderful strike: He made a good control after receiving from a long ball, turned in split seconds before firing home from outside the box.
It could have been worse but Musa Esenu had a goal ruled out for offside in the first half.
Wasswa was spot on when he came out to deny Ssemuju who had raced on a weak back pass that was slowed down by a soggy artificial turf.
The visitors who came into the game on a back of a 3-2 loss to Kyetume FC, made two changes in their starting XI with Joel Jangeyambe and Denis Andama starting.
Brian Masaba’s side barely threatened with Julius Malingumu coming closest but his effort was pushed out for corner by Sanon Munabi.
Ezra Bida had a decent chance in the first half to score from a free-kick but he sent his effort far and wide.
Substitute Amis Muwonge who replaced Jangeyambe was starved of possession up front as the side left Buikwe empty handed.
What Next For Both Sides
The league will take a break as the national team prepares for CHAN.
BUL FC will visit Kyetume FC at the Mighty Arena on May 5 while Onduparaka will host Bright Stars on the same day, when the league returns.
