Striker Simon Okwi proved to SC Victoria’s technical bench that his recruitment from KCCA FC during the transfer period was a good move when he scored the first goal in the 16th minute. The hardworking striker unleashed a hard shot past Vipers’ goalkeeper Hamza Muwonge.

Muwadda Mawejje added two goals for SC Victoria in the second half, while Ismail Kazibwe picked up a consolation goal for Vipers FC in the 89th minute.

“I am happy that the goals are starting to come and this is the second game we are scoring three goals,” said SC Victoria coach Alex Isabirye after the game.

In the other games played, Andrew Basoma’s lone goal was enough to win it for Police FC against Bidco FC. CRO FC also moved from bottom of the log with a hard fought 3-2 victory over Entebbe FC.
