•Arua Hill 0-1 Express
•Gaddafi 2-1 BUL
Arua Hill endured further misery as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Paridi P/S in Adjumani.
Emmanuel Alex Wasswa secured the lone goal, capitalizing on a delivery from Jonathan Aguocha.
The game saw both teams finish with a player sent off, with Arua Hill’s captain Gaddafi receiving matching orders in the 76th minute and Aguocha suffering the same fate in added time.
This loss adds to Arua Hill’s woes as they remain at the bottom of the league table with only five points and no wins in their last six games.
However, a silver lining for them was being able to field a full squad, contrasting their previous match where they had only eight players available in a 7-1 defeat against Kitara.
Meanwhile, Express FC continues their upward trajectory under new coach Alex Isabirye, securing their third win of the season.
With this victory, they have climbed to sixth place, boasting 22 points from 14 games.
What Next – Arua Hill will visit NEC on January 6 at Lugogo while Express will welcome Gaddafi at Wankulukuku on the same day.
