Unstoppable Maroons stroll on



Bell Super League leaders, Maroons, opened up an eight-point lead at the summit after edging Police 1-0 at Luzira on Friday.

Dickson Kigongo scored the game’s solitary goal after the hour to ensure Asaph Mwebaze’s outfit maintain their unbeaten streak.

Maroons, having now won 10 in 13 and drawn the other three, are on 33 points, eight ahead of Express, 12 adrift of third-placed Simba and 13 ahead of Villa.

Either of Villa and Express will have a say later on Saturday regarding cutting the deficit on Maroons when the two traditional giants face off at Nakivubo.

Maroons came into this tie on a low by their own standards this season. The prisons side had drawn their last game with Entebbe Young 2-2.

But they were also facing a Police side devoid of inspiration having been thumped 4-1 by Water in their last outing.

The policemen, however, did not just lay down for a beating, making it as difficult as possible for Maroons to break down.

Well, until the 74th minute when the hosts broke the deadlock with Kigongo grabbing his fourth goal of the season. It never changed.
