Ambrose Kirya’s late strike has given Sports Club Villa a lead against Jinja side JMC Hippos in the Azam Uganda Premier League game played at the Mandela National Stadium Namboole, on Tuesday evening.

The two teams played to a barren first half with Villa playing on the offensive although they lost most of their chances. Sharp Shooter Tabu Vitalis made several attempts but JMC’s Mwate Tadeo was alert to stop them to hold the jogoos to a goaless half.

Exactly five minutes after the half time recess, Midfielder Tadewo Lwanga mounted an attack which was stopped by JMC’s Asuman Bajampola.

The Jogoos gained possession again through Martin Kizza who came in as a substitute, curling a simple cross to former Hippos striker who hit the back of the net.
