10 man MYDA embarrass Onduparaka at what used to be their fortress

Kenneth MUKISA

Onduparaka have succumbed to their 9th loss of the season. The 3rd at home only this term,  a place they used to pride in as a fortress .

This painful loss came at the hands of a side that had only won one game all season , a 1-0 victory over relegation threatened Kyetume at Njeru.

MYDA in the process record their second victory of the season, leaving the crown for the league’s  weakest team to Kitara who were walloped 4-1 at Lugogo by Police FC this evening.

Joseph Mutyaba’s men took an early lead after being awarded with a soft penalty when Allan Busobozi got brought down in the box on 17 minutes. Moses Okot flawlessly converted the kick to put Onduparaka in the lead.

It was assumed that Okot’s goal would open the floodgates for Onduparaka but the visitors responded after only 12 minutes.

They were also awarded with a spot kick which Mutebi Eric converted in the 29th minute.

Before the half time whistle went, midfielder Jamal Malish restored Onduparaka’s lead via a splendid free kick from over  35 yards.

Mutyaba’s men being in cruise control of affairs, they passed the ball with swagger and ensured MYDA do not even think about a recovery.

They were wrong, despite MYDA falling to a man down on 71 minutes with a red card to Brandy Lojum for a harsh challenge on Jukius Okocha, the visitors refused to give in.

They continued to throw everything in their powers until Onduparaka were forced into a mistake. MYDA were awarded with another penalty which Henry Mutebi converted to draw the game level with only 10 minutes to play.

As Onduparaka pushed for a winner, doom befell them, MYDA made one final attack and goal keeper Tonny Kyamera turned the ball into his own net to hand the visitors an unlikely lead.

Onduparaka fall to 10th on 24 points, only 4 above the relegation bound party of Wakiso Giants, Busoga, Kyetume ,MYDa and Kitara. They host KCCA on 25th April while MYDA will visit Police FC on 24th April this month.
