SC Villa’s Trophy Hopes Slip

SC Villa’s chances to win the Uganda Premier League hit a snag with a 1-1 draw against Police FC at Nakivuubo stadium on Friday march 13 2015.


Sam Simbwa’s Boys only needed to pocket three points to top the Uganda Premier League Log in a campaign to end their misery spell without winning the domestic league trophy.

The 1-1 draw has left SC Villa in second place and Vipers’ FC is now on top of the table with 41 points just a point ahead of Villa that has a game.

Villa managed to get their lead through Chrizestom Ntambi in the 46th minute.

The 16 times League champions seemed comfortable with their 1-0 lead in the early minutes of the second half  until Police FC skipper Bulega Umar fired a long range shot in the 67th minute.


SC Villa goalkeeper Nickolas Ssebwato was left helpless after seeing the ball his net.

Veteran attackers Hakim Magumba and Ronald Muganga came in to reverse the result and add in life in the game but it was like adding salt to a wound after wasted chances from striker Stephen Bengo and Nigerian born Victor Emminayo.

“We didn’t play well as expected, we created more chance than our opponents though wasted, a point in hand is not enough for us.” said SC Villa Boss Sam Simbwa.

Police FC managed to get four points in their two games against SC Villa this season with the first one ending in a 2-1 victory in favour of Kayihura boys.

Villa will be travelling to BUL FC in their next match.

SCVU 2-1 Express FC; Brian Ocho scored a brace for the University side while Isaac Sserunkuma netted the only goal for Express FC; Lweza 1-1 Soana,  BUL 1-0 KJT Lwenshama.
