Team captains pose with match oficials before kickoff

Nelson Senkatuka’s strike at the death of first half gave Proline FC a much needed victory over URA FC in a Uganda Premier League match played on Friday afternoon at the Mehta stadium in Lugazi.

With the tie heading to a barren halftime, story Gift Ali picked a ball outside Proline box and sprint through to URA’s box while maneuvering through the yellow barricades on the way. The midfielder passed over to Dan Isiagi whose first time pass met Senkatuuka at the right place in the right time.

Coach Kisala was forced to boost his attacking power bank, there introducing Kigongo and Feni Ali just after the break for Kyeyune and Kigongo respectively.

The change almost yielded five minutes later. Harry Gentle intercepted Sam Kintu’s pass, crossed over to Lule who in turn set up Feni inside the box but his stinging shot ended on the side net.

Mujib later on withdrew Isiagi for Simon Mbazira to solidify the packed midfield. Proline henceforth forged all ways to kill URA FC’s hopes with several stoppages forcing the referee to run the game up to 103 minutes.

URA FC remain 7th on the log while Proline shoot to 10th.
