Gaddafi FC twice came from down to deny hosts Arua Hill SC in a FUFA Big League encounter at Barifa playground.

Arua Hill were on course for the win when Ronald Bithum scored a 90th-minute equaliser as Gaddafi lived to die another day.

The visitors had been reduced to ten men when Frank Mulimi was shown a second yellow card at the hour mark for a foul on Rashid Yakin.

Caesar Okhuti gave Arua Hill an early lead when he headed in Dan Birikwalira cross in the second minute of the game.

However, the former Onduparaka FC striker was taken off hurt later on, paving way for striker Alfred Leku.

Mark Bamukyaye leveled from the spot for Gaddafi in the 27th minute but Leku put Arua Hill back in control with a 71st minute strike.

The hosts had chances to extend the lead through Gadafi Gadinho and Baden Mujahid but were both denied by goalkeeper Didi Muhamed before a late equaliser.

Arua Hill move joint top, level on 12 points with Kataka FC who beat Maroons on Wednesday.

Gaddafi FC move to 10 points, level with Calvary FC who edged Paidha Black Angels.

What Next For Both Sides – Arua Hill visit Paidha Black Angels in a West Nile Derby while Gadfafi will be at home against Calvary FC this Sunday.
