AUPL: Police fc rally to pile more misery on Bisaso as Sc Villa breaks Onduparaka’s home record to keep title dream alive.

Police fc 4 – 3 Express fc
Onduparaka fc 0 – 1 Sc Villa
Soana fc 1 – 0 URA fc.
Was this a thriller in Manila 2? Not ever close by any means yes but Police fc and Express fc gave footballing fans a glimpse of total football, attack, attack and attack.
Both teams came into this encounter at Mandela National Stadium on a mission fighting different battles for the common cause.
Express fc saw it as the only opportunity to redeem themselves escaping the ever growing assured relegation as the Cops had to fight for the badge and their underfire coach Abdallah Mubiru.
The game started on a high and Police drew first blood scoring in the 3rd minute through Norman Ojik.
Express were not to coil under pressure as Michael Birungi pulled them level 6 minutes into the game.
Coach Bisaso’s Express proved the better side after their equaliser and the striking partnership of Birungi and Leku dazed Police backline for the entire first half and in the 35th minute former Sc Villa player Ayub Kisaliita put the red eagles in cruise control finishing the first half strongly.
On resumption of the second half, new signing Pius Kaggwa felt he had seen enough and the former Synergy youngster pulled Police level in the 51st minute exploiting some poor defending from the Red eagles.
With game tied at 2 all, players jostled for possession attacking both ends relentlessly with the ball covering every blade of grass. Against the run of play though, Michael Birungi received the ball on the right cut inside and crossed to Kisaliita with the Police defence caught napping, he drilled a shot in the back of the net on the 65th minute to the applause of the travelling fans.
At 2-3, Express tried to play some delaying tactics with the clock ticking but it wasn’t meant to be their day. They conceded from a corner in the 90th minute dampening all their hopes of taking all 3 points.
Police fc stamped authority in the additional minutes and the pressure on Express goal paid off when flying winger Pius Kaggwa made easy work of defender Ronnie Kisekka crossing for Ocen Ben to break Express fc hearts with the 100th minute goal.
With the game very unpredictable, coach Abdallah Mubiru had the referee to thank for blowing the final whistle right after the 4th goal avoiding heart in the mouth moments for such a crazy game.
This bitter loss condemns Express fc to the bottom of the log and Fufa Big league looks more like an unavoidable destination.
In Arua, league leaders Sc Villa produced their A game beating host Onduparaka fc with a solitary goal scored by winger Godfrey Lwesibawa in the 7th minute and breaking Onduparaka’s home unbeaten record in the process which had stood for years.
This moves Sc Villa 4 points clear of 2nd placed KCCA fc though KCCA has 2 game in hand.
