Aging striker Anthony Bongole scored a late goal to ensure Bright Stars FC got the better of Soana FC for the first time in four meetings in FUFA organized competitions on Tuesday evening in a FUFA Super League match at Nakivubo Stadium.

The former SC Villa and Proline forward strike condemned the first round pace setters to seventh place while Livingstone Mbabazi’s side rose to 11th. Prior to the game, Soana boasted of a good record against their rivals with a win and two draws between them.

Cranes youngster Francis Olaki had diverted home early for the visitors and the hosts only came to life late on.

Olaki continued to orchestrate Soana’s attacks from an advanced midfield role.

Stars, who had lacked energy and invention, showed slightly more purpose before the break, but could not create any clear-cut chances, the Soana goalkeeper dealing competently with the host’s crosses.

A goal down, the home side had no room for further error and Medi Kakeeto’s superb defence splitting pass was slotted home by Hassan Kikoyo to go level.

Late on, red cards were dished out-one to each club as the hosts revelled in the space and uncertainty in Soana’s defence and Bongole’s goal summed up a miserable new episode in Soana’s toptier expedition.

In Lugazi, former league champions Uganda Revenue Authority lost at home to Sports Club Victoria University 2-1. Noah Semakula and Odong Mathew scored for SCVU. Kalanda Frank got the consolation for URA who had hoped for maximum points to take them top of the log since table leaders Kiira Young were resting.

At Mutesa II stadium, Entebbe and SC villa shared the spoils in a goalless draw.

At Kakindu stadium, Kibirige Jackson struck for BUL while Ivan Lubale was on target for CRO who occupy bottom position.

At Kitende SS, Vipers edged Simba thanks to Miya Faroouk’s solitary strike to go top of the table above Kiira Young who drop to second. Kiira Young were not in action on Tuesday.
