Tuesday, 2nd November
*Arua Hill 3-2 URA
*Vipers 1-0 Onduparaka
*Bright Stars 1-1 KCCA
*Police 1-2 Express
*BUL 1-0 Mbarara

URA FC surrendered a two-goal lead to succumb to Arua Hill in a thrilling encounter at the Barifa Ground in Arua.

Kabon Living gave the visitors the lead from the freekick to score his first goal for the club before he turned provider for Rwothomio Cromwel who headed in to double the advantage.

Arua Hill pulled one back through Samuel Ssekamatte and he later levelled from the spot to complete his brace.

Then Alfred Leku scored with a simple tap in, in what proved to be the winner for the hosts.

With 10 minutes to go, Arua Hill was reduced to 10 men after goal scorer Leku received his second yellow card of the game after a challenge on Derrick Ndahiro.

Its the first win for Arua Hill at home this season and the second for the club having beaten Express in the opener.

The hosts were good value for the result and it was a show of resilience for the team playing in their first season in top flight.

It will be a hard result to take for the Tax Collectors who beat UPDF FC in almost similar fashion.

URA FC could have conceded earlier in the game but James Alitho made a finger tip save to deny Matovu Richard from a corner kick and he was later called into action to deny Ssekamatte.

URA Skipper Shafic Kagimu earlier on hit the woodwork while Steven Mukwala had a chance to get an equaliser but headed wide.

Arua Hill moves to seven points in 4 matches while URA remain with just three points after two matches.

What next for both sides – Both sides will return to action after the International break. On Friday 19th November, Arua Hill will travel to Gadaffi FC at the Arena of Vision while URA welcome BUL FC on Saturday 20th
