The StarTimes Uganda Premier League match day 17 has been concluded today Wednesday 15th, January 2020 with four fixtures producing 14 goals.
Most shocking was a 6:1 thrashing of George Ssimwogerere's Express FC by Abdullah Mubiru's Police FC.
A brace from both Derrick Kakooza and Pius Kaggwa in the 1',20' and 6',45 respectively gave Police FC a half time lead before second half goals from Ben Ocen and an own goal from Peter Mutebi in 66th and 83' sealed the cops' win. Ben Ocen's goal means he is level with Maroons Steven Mukwala and Vipers Fahad Bayo all tied at 11 goals.
Express' consolation came one minute to full time but was worthless as the Red Eagles succumbed to the heaviest defeat of the season. The result put the Cops in 11th position on 18 points from 6 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses.
BUL FC playing at home at Njeru Technical center succumbed to a 3:1 loss to visitors URA FC. Saidi Kyeyune 25' and a brace from Cromwell Rwothomio 46' and 87' handed Sam Ssimbwa's side a comfortable win. Hamis Tibita won a consolation for Peter Onen's BUL FC who lost a second match in succession in the second round, having lost only two in the first round (15 matches).
Wakiso Giants' Charles Livingstone Mbabazi lost his second consecutive match at the helm the Purple Sharks with a 1:0 loss away to Mbarara city at Bombo Military grounds.
