After a run of five matches in a row without a win, the tax collectors got some relief with a vital away win against the then log leaders Onduparaka at their home ground in Arua, the Green Light Stadium. 

URA had last won a match against Maroons (3:0) in their season's openner in August 2019. They went ahead in the 31st minute through Cromwell Rwothomio, thanks to a good release from Mikidadi Ssenyonga. 

The gorgeous forward went ahead to double the lead 20 minutes later to hand Sam Ssimbwa 's charges a deserved away win. Onduparaka's lone strike came from Captain Gaddafi Wahab (90'-pen) and the loss was their second of the season leaving them second in the table on 15 points. 

The win is their (URA) second and moves them nineth in the table with nine points after 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. Brace hero Cromwell Rwothomio was named the Pilsner man of the match. URA FC's Yeseri Wahibi got injured in 12 minutes time and was replaced by Mikidadi Ssenyonga, the other substitutes saw Joackim Ojera and James Alitho pave way for Ronald Kigongo and Nafian Alionzi respectively.
