FUFA Super League
Express 1-4 Kiira Young
Police 0-1 Soana

SC Villa 3-1 Bright Stars
SCVU 1-1 Proline
Simba 1-0 Masaka
Vipers 1-0 BUL
URA 2-2 Entebbe
Uganda Cranes striker Emmanuel Okwi has scored an excellent goal against Bright Stars on his return in the SC Villa jersey since 2010 at Nakivubo Stadium,Tuesday evening.
The striker kept SC Villa waiting since last month when the world governing body FIFA cleared him to join SC Villa on a six-month provisional International Transfer Certificate (ITC) netted first with the other goals coming through an own goal by former SC Villa player Ababukar Tabula and Joggo captain Ayub Kisalita.
Bernard Muwanga picked the consolation goal for coach Livingstone Mbabazi’s side. The win pushed coach Steven Bogere’s side to ninth place behind Police FC, who lost 1-0 to Soana FC.
Okwi requested for FIFA intervention after he claimed that Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel had failed to fulfill part of their contractual obligation.
Tanzania’s Simba reportedly cashed US$300,000 from Etoile du Sahel early this year for Okwi’s transfer.
“I am happy that finally I can get back to active football. I have been training with SC Villa and hopefully I will get back to full fitness and help the team win more matches,” said Okwi.
KCC on 7
Defending champions KCCA FC were in winning mood this afternoon with a 7-0 whitewash of CRO FC at the Mbale Stadium.
Fresh from a barren draw against second-placed SC Victoria University, coach George Nsimbe’s KCCA FC gave newly-promoted CRO FC no chance, with Tony Odur bagging a hat-trick, while last year’s top scorer Herman Wasswa netted a brace.
Steven Bengo, who moved from SC Villa during the transfer period, and William Wadri also made sure they got their names on the score sheet.
The win saw KCCA FC move to third place, two points away from table leaders URA FC, who were held to a 2-2 draw by Entebbe FC.
Second-placed SC Victoria University was surprisingly humbled by Proline FC 1-0 at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole. Silva Ochaya’s second half goal was enough to hand coach Alex Isabirye a first loss of the season.
In the other matches played, towering Peter Ssenyonjo’s goal was enough to give Soana FC a 1-0 win over Police, while army side Simba also beat Masaka 1-0.
Kiira Young moved to fourth place after a convincing 4-1 away win over Express FC. Allan Kyambadde netted for the home side, Henry Guti scored a brace, while Brian Nkuubi and Richard Kasaaga picked up a goal each while Vipers SC, who sacked their Nigerian coach recently, needed a Deus Bukenya goal to stop Bidco 1-0.
