*UPDF 2-1 Bright Stars
*Vipers 2-2 KCCA
*Arua Hill 3-0 Tooro United
Ezekiel Katende and James Begisa were on target for UPDF FC as the side overcame Bright Stars to claim their third win of the season.
Nelson Senkatuka scored for the visitors in a pulsating affair at Bombo.
Musa Mudde missed from the spot for UPDF FC but Brian Ssenyondo’s side did just enough on the day.
Katende gave the hosts the lead in the 11th minute when he received the ball from a seemingly offside Ivan Ahimbisibwe.
Mudde fluffed UPDF FC’s opportunity to extend the lead when he missed his penalty after Ivan Ahimbisibwe was fouled in the area, for goalkeeper Tamale Simon to pull out an incredible save.
But Tamale was at fault when he mishandled a cross to gift Begisa the second.
Earlier, Senkatuka had equalised for the Visitors when he scored from an empty net after Goalkeeper Brian Bwete was beaten to the ball.
UPDF nearly gifted Jungu Methodius but his effort went wide after a miss communication between Denis Ssekitoleko and Brian Bwete.
UPDF register their third consecutive win for the first time this season while Bright Stars have lost back to back games.
UPDF are 3rd with 17 points while Bright Stars are 14th with 5 points in 8 matches.
What next for both sides
UPDF will return to action on Saturday 11th away to Wakiso Giants at the Wakissha stadium while Bright Stars will host Arua Hill at Kavumba Recreation Ground.
