SUPL: Vipers edge Arua Hill to remain on top of the table
Vipers scored three second-half goals to complete revenge against Arua Hill in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League game played at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.
Cesar Manzoki, Milton Karisa and Yunus Sentamu scored Vipers’ goals on Saturday evening.
After a goalless first half, Manzoki broke the deadlock scored within four minutes of restart, as he was at the end of Karim Watambala’s blocked shot to bundle home.
The hosts doubled their lead in the 70th minute when Manzoki headed Watambala’s throw into Karisa’s path for the winger to poke in the second.
Gaddafi Wahab volleyed in a beauty to halve the deficit with 13 minutes to play.
However, Sentamu put the game to bed when he strolled through Arua Hill defence to score past a helpless Richard Anyama.
Elsewhere, URA FC won 2-1 against Gaddafi FC courtesy of Ibrahim Dada and Brian Nkuubi’s goals while Bate scored for Gaddafi.
At Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe, Richard Wandyaka and Simon Oketch were on scoresheet as BUL FC won 2-0 against Wakiso Giants.
Meanwhile, Gabriel Matata registered a hat-trick to guide Onduparaka to a 3-1 win against Busoga United at AbaBet Greenlight Stadium in Arua. Shaka Ssozi scored Busoga’s only goal.
