Review: All three for returning Ssenyondo as Mbarara City win 3rd game


Ibrahim Orit scored late in the 4th minute of added time to earn all three points for Mbarara City FC in Brian Ssenyondo’s first game after returning to the club.

Mbarara got the lead through former Onduparaka midfielder, Solomon Okwalinga who headed in from a Jasper Ahebwa cross that came from a beautiful build-up down the left.

Onduparaka returned looking the better side in the second period of the game and leveled matters through Rajab Kakooza in the 70th minute.

However, Brian and his boys, determined as they were from the start of the games needed the result more, mounting more pressure unto Onduparaka. The home side almost doubled the lead in the 87th minute When Swaliki Bebe’s headed ball flew slightly above the crossbar.

It was not until the 94th minute that Ibrahim Orit sent in a moderate ball from a corner kick that the Onduparaka defense failed to deal with and ended up at the back of the net for the winner to break the hearts of the traveling Onduparaka fans!

The result means Mbarara FC has now collected 13-points from 13-game but will remain 13th on the standings as Onduparaka also stay-put in 4th with 23-points from 14-games
