UPDF ended BUL’s six-match winning run with a 2-0 victory over the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) table leaders at Bombo Barracks Ground on Thursday.
Bernard Muwanga’s seventh-minute penalty and Sam Kintu’s second-half goal were enough to hand the soldiers’ only their second win in seven attempts in a match where BUL coach Abbey Kikomeko was sent off for dissent.
The win for UPDF lifts them three places up to ninth on eight points, while BUL remains on top with 18 points in seven matches. BUL came into this one on the back of six straight wins in which they scored 10 times against two goals conceded.
Meanwhile, SC Villa won their first league match in the last three when they dispatched struggling Arua Hill 3-1 at Wankulukuku. Goals from Ronald Ssekiganda, Umar Lutalo, and Peter Onzima were enough to give the Jogoos their first win since the 3-0 victory over NEC on September 29. Frank Kalanda scored Arua Hill’s consolation but it was hardly a consolation as the West Nile side recorded their seventh straight defeat of the season.
Arua Hill are now bottom of the table with a single point.
