Wednesday, December 9
*SC Villa 3-0 Mbarara
*Kitara FC 1-5 UPDF FC

SC Villa beat Mbarara City 3-0 on Matchday two of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter played at Bombo Barracks.

A brace from Isaac Ogwang and Derrick Ndahiro penalty put Villa in third with four points after two games.

Ndahiro scored from the spot in the 10th minute before Ogwang doubled the lead in the 20th.

Ogwang picked his brace in the 37th minute when he directed a header off Goffin Oyirwoth’s cross.

It could have been worse, but Ndahiro missed his second penalty in the 70th minute after Pistis Barenge was wrongly judged to have handled the ball in the area.

Isaac Ogwang receives his player of the match gong from Cranes coach Jonathan Mckinstry.

Mbarara, despite pulling off their socks in the second half, failed to find the back of the net.

Former Villa striker Bashir Mutanda had his shot blocked in the closing stages and could later rattle the woodwork from the freekick in the added minutes.

What Next – Villa visit URA FC this Saturday at Arena of Visions in Ndejje while Mbarara will be targeting their first win when they visit Lugogo KCCA FC.
