Mukwala grabs brace as URA overcomes UPDF to keep title chase alive

Steven Mukwala scored a brace as URA FC edged UPDF FC 2-1 at the Arena of Visions in one of the two Sunday games played.

The win took Sam Ssimbwa’s men to 57 points and subsequently reclaimed their second place with a point adrift of leaders Express.

Mukwala broke the deadlock for Tax Collectors five minutes to the mandatory halftime break.

The Army side equalized through striker Alex Kitatta who tapped in from close range moments into the second half. 

The game was destined for a stalemate but Mukwala restored URA’s lead in the 78th minute and ultimately won it.

The 2019/20 league top scorer took his tally to 14 goals, one behind Express’ Erick Kambale and two behind leading scorer Yunus Sentamu of Vipers.

UPDF FC suffered their 12th defeat of the season and remained 10th with 34 points.
