Villa, Maroons end in stalemate



What was expected to be an explosive encounter ended with SC Villa and Maroons sharing spoils in a Bell Super League match played at Luzira Stadium on Wednesday.

An Okello Sylvester own goal gave Villa an early advantage but Maroons rescued a point with four minutes left when Kamada Lubega struck to ensure both teams remain unbeaten after nine games.

The result sees Maroons maintain table leadership but with their advantage reduced to four points.

The Prisons side, coached by Asaph Mwebaze, now lead standings with 23 points with Mike Mutebi’s Villa and Ibrahim Buwembo’s Express in second and third on 19 and 18 respectively.

Both teams entered this encounter well aware of their unbeaten records and their first half play was that of no side wanting to lose, the period ending goalless.

But Villa’s sustained pressure did pay off on 51 minutes when Okello turned into his own net to give Villa the lead.

Sensing the first loss on the cards, Maroons furiously attacked back in search of an equalizer. In the process, Villa’s Denis Okot and Richard Onekalit entered the referee’s book as they tried to thwart the visitors’ onslaught.

But not for long. Villa were counting their sixth win of the campaign with four minutes on the clock when Kamada pounced to salvage a point for Maroons.
