That was in Champions stadium, Mwererwe where 16-time champions SC Villa fired blanks against hosts Bright Stars.

The Jogoos started with prodigal son, Emmanuel Okwi upfront but struggled to convert the few chances created against a well organised Fred Kajoba coached side on a sunny afternoon.

At Lugogo, champions KCCA started off from where they left with a deserving 2-0 win over struggling Bul FC.

Geoffrey Sserunkuma opened the scores with his 10th goal of the season as early as three minutes while Muzamiru Mutyaba added the second in the 67th minute with a wonderful strike.

In Lugazi, URA threw away a two goal lead in a 2-2 thrilling draw with JMC Hippos.

At Namboole, Tony Odur and Deus Bukenya scored to give former league winners Vipers a 2-0 win over Lweza and the bragging rights in the Entebbe Road derby.

Elsewhere, at Nakivubo, Hood Kawesa and William Wadri scored in the first half to give Abdallah Mubiru a winning debut at Police as they deservingly beat visitors Sadolin Paints to move four points clear of the relegation monster with 17 points in 12th and now tie with Painters who are 11th.

At Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku, new team captain Ibrahim Saddam Juma scored on his debut as Express captain but Godfrey Wakaza replied with an equaliser to deny Matia Lule’s side maximum points.

Action continues on Wednesday at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo when Onduparaka pay a visit to Proline.
