Uganda Premier League | Results

  • Kitara 0-0 BUL
  • Wakiso Giants 1-0 NEC

Kitara was held by BUL in a goalless draw in the Uganda Premier League match that was played at Masindi Municipality Stadium on Friday evening.

The Royals failed to extend their gap at the summit as they were stopped by second-placed BUL.

Kitara’s custodian Chrispas Kusiima was forced into a save by Ronald Otti from close range in the 17th minute.

BUL’s custodian Joel Mutakubwa kept his side in the game after making a quick run to intercept Paddy Muhumuza’s through pass to Denis Omedi.

Omedi’s touch was too heavy as he tried to tee up Jude Ssemugabi and the hosts put to waste a cut-clear chance in the final minutes of the first stanza.

Eleven minutes into the second stanza, Omedi’s powerful effort went narrowly wide of the frame as the hosts kept knocking.

In the final minutes of the game, both sides made changes but the score remained intact.

Kitara is still on top of the log with 44 points while BUL is second after playing 22 games.

Elsewhere, Wakiso edged NEC in a 1-0 victory in the UPL game that was played at Kabaka Kyabaggu on Friday.

Kenneth Kimera’s goal in the 80th minute was the difference as the home side bagged maximum points.

NEC lies third on the log with 37 points while Wakiso Giants are 11th with 26 points in 22 games.
