FBL: Maroons Destroy Sporting’s Fortress, Masavu Opens Gap

Ibrahim Kongo and Solomon Walusimbi double strike in the second half against Sporting United FC propelled Maroons FC to just one point behind Rwenzori table leaders Ndejje University.

The highly charged game was played at the Lango Sports ground in Lira.

Kongo fired the Prison warders up in the hour mark from a beautiful set up with Damian Nakalema who beat three defenders before tipping the scorer to round up Saddam Ogwang.

Walusimbi doubled the trouble for the hosts with a simple finish off Sydney Cheka’s first time cross.

Coach Asaph Tumwebaze rotated his forward line leaving out Patrick Kaddu, nurse Raphael Winju Peter Otai for Kongo, Walusimbi and Cheka.

The 2-1 victory lifts Maroons to 18 points, one below Ndejje University with two games at hand.
