In a clash between SC Villa and Bul FC on matchday 21 of the Startimes Uganda Premier League, David Owori’s strike just before halftime proved decisive as the Jogoos emerged victorious despite being reduced to ten men.

In the 17th minute, a promising cross from Kafumbe narrowly missed Gavin’s timely connection which could have led to an early opener. The Jogoos continued to press, with Owori’s attempt saved by Ikara in the 20th minute.

As the game progressed, the Jogoos maintained active possession without creating clear-cut chances until the 40th minute when a slick combination between Semakula and Sekiganda set up Owori to calmly slot the ball past Ikara, giving SC Villa the lead at halftime.

After the break, the Jogoos intensified their efforts, with Kiwanuka’s shot narrowly missing the target in the 50th minute. Despite dominating possession, they struggled to break down Bul’s defense.

The game took a dramatic turn in the 60th minute when Garvin Kizito was shown a red card for a handball on the goal line following a corner from Bul, resulting in a penalty for the hosts. However, Jeans Braddy saved Kazindula’s spot-kick, preserving SC Villa’s lead.

Manager Dusan made his first substitution in the 68th minute, bringing on Umar Lutalo for Kiwanuka, as goalkeeper Braddy Jeans Wokorach made several crucial saves to keep the Jogoos ahead also making him the day’s man of the match, clinching his second clean sheet since season start

Further changes were made in the 80th minute, with Andrew Otim replacing Charles Lwanga and Ngonde Elvis coming on for Sekiganda, as SC Villa held on to claim all three points at full-time.

It was no easy game for in the last twenty minutes, we had to step up being a man down and fought for the badge. I knew I had to save that penalty for we needed much more than a draw and also the win for Gavin. I thank the team for the work and the fans for making the shouts throughout the game. – Jeans Braddy Wokorach

The win pushes the Jogoos to 36 points on the log in as many games played six points from the leaders.
