SC Villa and Soltilo Brightstars FC clashed in an intense match on match day 24 of the Startimes Uganda Premier League. The game, held at Wankulukuku on a Sunday afternoon, saw both teams eager for victory.

In the 4th minute, the first shot of the day was punched out by Bright Stars’ Hassan, creating a tense moment demanding a rebound. However, neither team could convert in the early stages.

As the game progressed, there were glimpses of brilliance, such as a nice interplay between Lutalo and Kakande in the final box at the 14th minute, but Lwanga’s shot sailed above the crossbar, leaving the scoreline unchanged.

By the 30th minute mark, SC Villa seemed to dominate possession, creating numerous chances at goal but failing to find the breakthrough. The first half ended goalless, with both teams heading to the break to regroup.

In the second half, the Jogoos returned with renewed determination, launching dangerous attacks but unable to capitalize on their opportunities. A pivotal moment came in the 66th minute when Bright Stars’ Ashiraf Mulindi found the back of the net, putting his team in the lead.

However, SC Villa quickly responded as Patrick Kakande leveled the score with a goal of his own in the 66th minute, restoring parity to the match.

Tempers flared as the game intensified, leading to a booking for Sekiganda at the 70th minute for a foul on Mulindi.

In a bid to shake things up, SC Villa made a double substitution at the 75th minute, bringing on Niwamanya and Elvis Ngonde for Lwanga and Sekiganda, respectively.

Despite late attempts to clinch victory, including a wayward shot by Lutalo in the 80th minute, the match ended in a 1-1 draw, with both teams sharing the points.

Reflecting on the game, forward Junior Niwamanya expressed disappointment at not securing the win but emphasized the team’s determination to bounce back stronger in their next fixture.
