A win for Gaddafi FC will push Arua Hill SC into the second position and they will be two points behind the soldier boys.
Arua Hill SC came in today’s game with an aim to revive their winning ways after a 1-1 stalemate in Bukedea against Blacks Power FC on Sunday.
Arua Hill SC was in an early lead through Alfred Leku’s 5th minute goal, this gave them confidence to win against Kataka FC at their home ground.
The Leopards were indeed energized by an early goal and found the back of the net for the second time through Alfred Leku who completed his brace in just 15 minutes of play.
However Kataka FC was not ready for the humiliation in front of the angry crowd and pulled one goal back through Mulindi in the 25th minute of the game.
At the end of first half the visitors were ahead by two goals to one.
The final half of the game was full of drama with Kataka FC pushing for an equalizer and indeed they leveled the game in the 70th minute through Kyazze to make it 2-2.
According to Arua Hill SC media team the goal awarded to the home team was out of a wrong decision made by the Linesman who gave away the goal following an incident where a throw-in was cleared outside the box but instead the linesman awarded a goal from nowhere.
This error brought a lot of commotion into the game where some players of Arua Hill SC were seen walking out of the pitch and the Coach breaking down into tears.
Arua Hill SC netted the third goal later in the second half which was ruled out and the game ended 2-2
This means Arua Hill will wait until tomorrow after the game between Gaddafi FC and Maroons FC to confirm their position on the table after collecting 17 points from the 9 games played.
