Friday, May 07
Shafiq Kagimu scored twice to ensure URA FC moves four points clear at the top of the Uganda Premier League thanks to a 3-1 victory over Onduparaka FC on Friday.
The skipper slotted home from close range, finishing off a brilliant team-move that saw Steven Mukwala set him up, to open the scoring on 34 minutes.
He then put the game to bed with his side’s third of the afternoon a minute past the hour mark, once again collecting from Mukwala.
Either side of Kagimu’s strikes, Mukwala had temporarily put the Tax Collectors 2-0 up on 40 minutes before Onduparaka equalised thanks to Ajobe Mahad who was teed up by Jamal Malish early in the second half.
The victory is URA’s 15 for the season and it takes them to 50 points atop the standings.
For Onduparaka, they stay in 13th with 24 points, four clear of the relegation zone with eight games to play.
In their next fixtures, URA are away to Vipers SC on Wednesday while Onduparaka hosts SC Villa the day before.
