Maroons maintain winning streak



Maroons opened a five-point lead at the Bell Super League summit after edging Police 1-0 in the security forces battle at Luzira on Tuesday.

Lubega Kamada scored the winner with a minute of the 90 to play to ensure Asaph Mwebaze’s outfit maintain 100 per cent winning record having recorded victories in all their opening six games.

The league was returning to action after breaking off for a two-week break as Cecafa Tusker Challenge Cup took centre stage in Kampala.

Both sides struggled to get out of the blocks and none could break the deadlock heading into half time.

But with Police looking to grabbing only their seventh point of the season, and Maroons staring at their potentially first dropped marks of the campaign, Kamada pounced to ensure the prisons side ran away with maximum points.

Maroons are now on 18 points, five more than second-placed SC Villa. The prisons side have, however, played a game more than the Jogoos. Police on the other hand remain seventh with just six points.

League action resumes this weekend with Bunnamwaya hosting champions Express on Friday before Masaka entertain Simba on Saturday. Police return to action the same day when they face Victors.
