*Blacks Power 2-1 Ndejje University
*Luweero United 0-2 Proline
*Kyetume 1-2 Calvary
*Kitara FC 4-2 Nyamityobora
Defender Joel Onziku’s first half bicycle kick was enough to help Kataka oveecome Maroons 1-0 in the FUFA Big League encounter at the Mbale Municipal Stadium.
Maroons will rue missed chances against a resilient Kataka, in a game they should have got at least a point.
Though being on the receiving end, Kataka scored first through Onziku who notched in a bicycle kick in the 11th minute after Maroons failed to defend Swamad Okumu’s corner.
The hosts could have doubled their lead from the corner kick but Noah Kizito couldn’t hit the target.
Maroons dominance in the opening half didn’t yield much fruits after Fred Amaku hit the woodwork from the freekick before Tusubira Abraham lobbed effort went wide after receiving a nice through pass from Amanya Junior.
Fred Amaku missed another keeper-to-beat after he also tried to loop the Goalkeeper but the ball went straight to the Goalkeeper’s gloves before substitute Bronson Nsubuga missed another decent chance.
Kataka FC wins their back to back games after a 3-1 win away to Proline while Maroons earlier played a 1-1 draw with Ndejje University.
The win puts Kataka joint top of the table with seven points in 3 games while Maroons slips to 5th with 5 points in 4 matches.
What next for both sides?
They will both return to action on Sunday 5th as Kataka play host to Luwero United at the Mbale Municipal Stadium while Maroons will host Blacks Power at the Luzira prisons ground.
