- Uganda Premier League (Match Day 22)
- Match 170: Busoga United 3-0 URA
Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club was brought down to earth with a 3-0 humbling by Busoga United at the Mighty Arena in Jinja on Tuesday.
Despite playing for more than an hour with 10 men following defender Douglas Muganga’s second bookable offense, Busoga United showed character.
On form midfielder David Bagoole opened the scoring with a 59th well curled free-kick past goalkeeper Nafian Alionzi.
Burly midfielder Nelson Mandela added the second goal five minutes later.
Left-footed young striker Lawrence Tezikya capped the icing on the already baked cake with the final goal with a quarter an hour to play.
This is URA’s first defeat in 11 league games and extinguishes their final run since the second round kicked off in January.
Given the victory, Busoga United climbed to 5th on the 16 team log with 33 points, one shy of fourth-placed URA.
There are virtually two days to rest before the next league encounters of these two clubs on Friday, 21st February 2020.
