BetPawa Big League: Lugazi secure convincing victory over Jinja North


Concluding Matchday’s fixtures today, Lugazi Football Club clinched a decisive 2-0 triumph against Jinja North United at Metha Stadium Lugazi, solidifying their second position in the league table.

The victory places them 4 points ahead of third placed Booma Football Club, securing a firm grip on their current standing.

The breakthrough for the hosts came courtesy of Wasswa Paul, who fired a powerful strike from close range along the six-yard box, handing Lugazi a well-deserved lead in the 16th minute.

Displaying relentless determination, the Lugazi team continued to press, ultimately doubling their advantage in additional time through Sam Nsubuga.

This significant win propels Lugazi FC to 28 points, drawing level on games played and trailing the table leaders, Police FC, by a mere two points.

Notably, Lugazi FC earned promotion to the Big League just last season, and in their second campaign, they have their sights set on ascending to the StarTimes Uganda Premier League, demonstrating remarkable progress and ambition.

On the contrary, Jinja North United failed to assert themselves during the match, displaying a lackluster performance that resulted in their inability to secure any result.

This defeat has further confined Jinja North United to the relegation zone, currently positioned 13th with 11 points from 13 outings.

With only two wins, five losses, and five draws, they teeter on the brink of relegation to the regional league.
