Kampala, Uganda | UPL.CO.UG Vitalis Tabu came off the bench to score the only goal of day one of the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) on Tuesday.

Goals were elusive in the four other AUPL opening matches, and it took up to the 72nd minute before Tabu’s strike marked the breakthrough in Masaka. The goal meant SC Villa were the only winners as well on AUPL day one.

Villa, beat Soana 1-0 at Masaka Recreation Ground to top the table as only other teams started the season goal-shy.

Among those included defending champions KCCA who squeezed a point off a spirited Maroons, who could have easily won it but for Charles Lukwago’s inspired display in goal and some half-hearted finishing from the visitors’ forwards.

Elsewhere, no goals were scored between Bright Stars and Vipers – which game saw the hosts’ player, Jimmy Kakoza, sent off on 13 minutes, Bul and Mbarara City, and Onduparaka and Proline.

Last season kicked off with eight goals scored across six stadiums, while the campaign before that saw the same number of goals in four matches.
