Entebbe beat Victors, go third
Top tier first timers Entebbe Young stormed into third place in the Bell Super League standings after beating Victors 2-1 at Luzira on Friday.
A Moses Ssenyonjo brace was enough to ensure maximum points as Samson Kisekka’s goal for the visitors could only settle for consolation.
The result saw Entebbe leapfrog SC Villa, who face Express on Saturday, and Simba, whose game with Kira Young was postponed, into third place with 23 points from 13 matches.
That was seven wins, three draws and an equal number of losses for the newcomers whose season ambition was just to avoid relegation.
For Victors, who remain third from bottom on just eight points from 12 games, the result only served to increase the number of losses to eight. They have drawn two and won an equal number.
Entebbe took a half time lead Ssenyonjo on 31 minutes before doubling the advantage six minutes into the second half.
Kisekka did pull one back for the visitors on 57 minutes but the home side held on to ensure all three points.
