BUL Beat Onduparaka To Ease Relegation Worries

Saturday 22nd May
BUL 3-1 Onduparaka

BUL FC returned to winning ways on Saturday as they defeated Onduparaka FC 3-1 at the Kyabazinga Stadium.

The Jinja based side that had gone five games without victory, going into the contest, struck through Deogracious Ojok, Joseph Ssemujju and Simon Ojok.

Kabon Living scored a late consolation for the visitors who lost their 14th game of the current campaign.

Onduparaka started brightly with Joel Jangeyambe sending a free-kick over after Allan Busobozi was fouled just-outside the area.

Against the run of play, Ojok pounced on Ochen Andama’s mistake to slot home the opener on 15 minutes.

Ojok nearly doubled the hosts lead but his curling effort went just-wide.

At the stroke of halftime, BUL were awarded a penalty after Charles Sempa was brought down in the area. Despite protests by the visitors, Ssemujju took responsibility and put the hosts 2-0 up.

Kabon who had a lively day nearly pulled a goal back for the visitors but his low effort hit the upright before Emmanuel Okech fired wide from the rebound.

With 15 minutes to play, Oketch who had replaced Sempa earlier sealed the points with BUL’s third of the afternoon.

Kabon was rewarded for his fine display on the day with Onduparaka’s consolation, poking home after custodian Sinan Mulabi failed to deal with a routine ball sent into the area.

The victory which is BUL’s first at home since April 20, takes them to 9th with 30 points, seven away from the relegation zone.

For Onduparaka who have now gone six games without victory, drop to 12th with 28 points from 26 games.

BUL’s next league game will be against MYDA at the King George memorial stadium on 15th June while Onduparaka will travel away to Vipers four days later.
