AUPL: Resurgent Police FC Defeat Soana

Uganda Premier League
Police 2-1 Soana

Police continued their impressive run since the start of the second round with yet another win against Soana on Friday.

Abdallah Mubiru the new coach at Police maintained his perfect start winning his third league game in charge with a 2-1 victory against Soana at Kavumba recreational ground.

Skipper Ben Ochen and Rahmat Ssenfuka scored for the cops while Francis Olaki’s strike for Soana settled for a consolation.

Returning to a ground that was their home ground, dosage before shifting to Nakivubo stadium for the first time, Police seemed the better side.

Ben Ochen converted from the spot kick in the 24th minute to give Police the lead after Yasin Mugume had been fouled in the box by Siraje Turyamuhebwa.

Five minutes to the break, Soana leveled matters through Francis Olaki who tapped home Baker Lukooya’s cross for the equaliser.

Police however surged up in the second half and former Proline midfielder Rahmat Ssenfuka helped the cops to regain their lead.

Ssenfuka picked a loose ball outside the box (about 25 yards) before pouncing it with full energy to go straight into the back of the net.

Soana made several attempts to level matters once again but the visitors remained resilient and held onto the score until the final whistle.

Police remain 9th on table on 23 points while Soana who are yet to win any league game under new coach George Lutalo remain 6th on 24 points.
