URA Concludes First Round

The build-up to this game was one full of praise of URA’s recent form not just limited to their previous fixture against the defending champions Vipers SC but also the other games that have made up this incredible run as they registered their fourth win against Onduparaka fc in the top league.

The boys didn’t disappoint. The desire to win was exhibited from the time the referee blew his whistle to commence the game till the final. The game was beautiful on the eye and indeed lived up to the hype.

With reports of a return to fitness of goalkeeper Nafian Alionzi, there was worry that Hannington Sebwalunyo who was having to a good run in goal was to lose his position, but surprisingly, he maintained his place in the team.

“It is good we finish the first round top of the table but the journey is still long. We’ve played well. This has been our biggest away win this season scoring three and conceding none.” URA Fc coach Sam Ssimbwa.

Sam Simbwa did name an industrious side with the intention of making this game super offensive. To his surprise, however, his side experienced a slow start to the game and allowed the hosts to dominate the first half.

It took until the 22nd minute for Steven Mukwala to break the deadlock with an improvisation that so him beat the opposing goalkeeper to put URA FC forward. That more or less was the story of the first half.

The second half was more entertaining from a URA FC perspective as the team attacked instantly from the word go. More of this can be attributed to the substitutions made in the 58th minute that saw Ojera Jaockiam and Nkuubi Brian come on for Ssali Davis and Sseruyidde Moses respectively. 

It didn’t take long for the on-form Steven Mukwala to put URA FC two up with a brilliant header before Cromwel Rwothomio sealed the tie with a rebound off Brian Nkuubi’s effort that hit the woodwork before coming back to play.
Mukwala would later be withdrawn for Ibrahim Dada who saw his effort fail to hit the back of the net in the 76th minute, seconds after his introduction to the game.
