- Bright Stars 1-1 Wakiso Giants
Substitute Ronald Nkonge scored with his first touch
seconds after coming to salvage a draw for Bright Stars against Wakiso Giants
on a soggy pitch at Wankulukuku.
Tom Masiko had given the Purple Sharks an early lead
with a goal from a penalty and the visitors missed a plethora of chances to
extend lead before they were punished.
Masiko sent goalie Simon Tamale the wrong way after
Hassan Ssenyonjo was brought down in the area inside three minutes.
Geoffrey Sserunkuma who is yet to open his league
account for Kefa Kisala’s side went close but his headed effort missed target
by inches while Viane Sekajugo was denied by the waters on the pitch.
At the other end, Brian Kayanja asked questions but
the half ended with visitors on top.
Bright Stars upped the game after the break but it
was Wakiso Giants who still got the chances with Masiko denied by the waters
while through on goal while Farouk Katongole cleared Sserunkuma goal bound
header off the line.
Muhammad Kisekka made a change with Moses Okot and
later Nkonge coming on and the latter made an instant impact scoring from a
rebound after Kayanja was denied by the cross bar.
Sekajugo missed a golden opportunity as he slid with
an empty goal at his mercy while Kirizestom Ntambi on his debut as a substitute
shot inches wide with the goalkeeper beaten as the two teams remained inseparable
at the final whistle.
Wakiso Giants moved top of the log with 7 points
while Bright Stars are second from bottom with two points in four games.
