StarTimes UPL: Rwothomio’s late header secures point for URA against SC Villa in Njeru


StarTimes Uganda Premier League topscorer Cromwel Rwothomio netted late on to secure a point for URA FC against SC Villa in a game played at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.

Rwothomio’s goal came in 88th minute to level the scores 2-2 after Sadam Masereka and Travis Mutyaba had netted for SC Villa in the first half, while Vianne Ssekajungo had gotten on the scoresheet for URA also in the opening half.

From the game’s first attempt at goal in the 3rd minute, the hosts, SC Villa broke the deadlock through  Masereka who run onto a  Mutyaba’s through pass. Mutyaba had dribbled past three URA players to find Masereka for the goal.

After URA conceding early on in the game, the Tax Collectors fought as hard as possible to level amends, and they did so in the 16th minute after Ssekajungo capitalized on a loose ball to shoot past Martin Ssenkooto in the SC Villa goal for the equalizer.

After that goal, URA looked like the side which would get the next goal of the match, but Steven Mukwala and Saidi Kyeyune all failed to find the back of the net after two brilliant goalscoring chances midway the opening half.

Just before the break, SC Villa went ahead once again – this time, Mutyaba exquisitely finding the back of net after receiving a pass from Amir Kakomo to shot past Hannington Ssebwalunyo for the Joggos second.

The game went into the break with the hosts holding a slim 2-1 lead over the visitors.

After the restart, SC Villa had the first chance with Joseph Kafumbe’s teasing free kick parried away for a corner kick by Ssebwalunyo.

URA also fashioned a chance of their own moments later, Benjamin Nyakonjo heading wide after a well driven Kyeyune free kick.

Just before the hour-mark, SC Villa had a chance to extend their lead but Masereka missed a brilliant chance, shooting directly to Ssebwalunyo after being found by Mutyaba.

URA’s Kyeyune got a chance to level matters moments later through a free-kick but his elastic effort was saved by Ssenkooto.

Cromwell Rwothomio also headed well after a wonderful Moses Sseruyinde’s corner in the 80th minute.

Having dominated proceedings for most of the second half, URA finally got rewarded with an equalizer with only two minutes left onto the clock after Rwothomio rose high to head a well driven Sseruyinde cross to level matters.

SC Villa had the last chance of the game but Salim Abdallah hit his free kick into the defensive wall after substitute Oscar Mawa was fouled just outside the box. 2-all it ended.

URA moves seventh on the log with 13 points garnered in 8 games while SC Villa remains 12th with 9 points.
