StarTimes UPL: URA draw yet again


URA FC have played out to another stalemate in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

This is after they drew 1-all with Wakiso Giants in a game played at Arena of Visions, Ndejje on Tuesday.

Simon Namwanja put Wakiso Giants ahead before Cromwell Rwothomio levelled matters to seal a sixth stalemate for the Tax Collectors thus far this season.

In an opening half short of goalscoring chances, the visitors Wakiso Giants went into the break ahead after left back Simon Namwanja interplayed well with Titus Ssematimba to break the deadlock just before the break.

Namwanja collected the ball from Ssematimba, turned two URA defenders inside-out to send his effort past Nafian Alionzi and into the back of the net.

Before that goal, Tom Matsiko rattled the crossbar after a long free kick by Edward Satulo.

URA’s best attempts of the opening half fell to Steven Mukwala and Cromwell Rwothomio, but the striking pair failed to capitalize.

URA returned for the second half a much improved side, started pressing and launching various attacks on the Wakiso Giants back line with hope to level matters.

After imposing numerous attacks, the Tax Collectors got the much needed equalizer after Rwothomio headed in a sweet Shafik Kagimu cornerkick just after the hour mark.

With scores level, Aliozi made an excellent save to parry away Joshua Lubwama’s free kick to the corner

While on the other end, Rwothomio guided his header off mark after being found unmarked in the box by Moses Sseruyinde’s free kick.

Emukule also made an incredible reflex save to deny substitute Joachim Ojera’s deflected shot with eight minutes lefts on the clock.

Rwothomio thought he had got a late winner for URA but his strike was ruled out for offside by center referee Ali Sabila.

At the end of 90, the game ended level with nothing to separate the two sides.

A draw takes URA to seventh place on the log with 18 points in 11 games while Wakiso Giants remain sixth with 21 points in 13 games.
