AZAM UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE: Vipers drop points, SCVU wins in Jinja

AZAM UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE: Friday 20th March,2015

Express 1-1 Sc Villa (Match stopped on 85 mins).

Police 2-1 Bright Stars

Vipers 1-1 Soana

URA 1-0 Simba


The highly anticipated live television broadcast moment of Uganda’s premier league finally came to pass as Express entertained the 16 time record holders, Sports Club Villa at Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku on Friday.

Eventually, the league games started being telecast live on Azam T.V after Court ruled in favour of FUFA in a law suit that was filed by USL barring the live coverage of matches on Azam T.V.

The game was watched by a fair cheering crowd that included among others AZAM T.V officials and the FUFA President, Eng. Moses Magogo.

The match perhaps ended prematurely after fans started to throw missiles onto the playing area and in the pavilion following a goal from the visiting team.

By this time, SC Villa’s Erisa Ssekisambu had cancelled John Ssemazzi’s 49th minute opener.

Ssekisambu’s goal came  with 5 minutes left on the clock, just moments after Ibra Kayiwa had been showed matching orders by referee, Rajab Bakasamba.

Until then, the match was being televised live on Azam Television and on 102.1 FUFA F.M.

The league committee will pronounce itself on the subject in the shortest period of time.

Elsewhere, a 10 man Victoria University side overcame BUL F.C 1-2 at Kakindu stadium in Jinja.

Left back, Brian Ochwo had given the visitors a 3rd minute lead before another left back, Hakim Magombe equalized 13 minutes to time.

The match looked destined for an all square result but towering striker, Fahad Tokko had other ideas altogether – scoring a penalty barely 5 minutes left.

He however turned a villain as he was sent off for unsporting character.

Table leaders, Vipers played to a one all draw with visitors Soana at Buikwe stadium.

Joseph Mpande granted the home team with a third minute goal before Samuel Oguttu grabbed a late equalizer for Soana F.C.

At Kavumba recreational stadium, Police F.C rallied from a goal down to grab 3 home points and maintain their mid-table status quo.

Jimmy Kibirige Lule gave Bright Stars a first half lead with a well converted set piece effort before Uganda U-23 striker Umar Kasumba and Peter ‘Crouch’ Ssenyonjo responded for the Cops.

At the Mehta stadium in Lugazi, Uganda Cranes striker, Robert Ssentongo was the hero with the lone strike on the day as URA overcame a hard fighting army side, Simba Football Club.

The league matches take a 10 day break before action returns on Tuesday, 31st March 2015 with 4 matches.
