Record league champions SC Villa (16 time winners) have today Monday 18th November, 2019 beaten home side Onduparaka 3:1 at Green light stadium.
Villa scored through Emmanuel Kalyowa five minutes into half time, Faisal Muwawu in the 16th minute and Fahad Badiro struck the third to seal a convincing win for the Joggos.
