Venue: Luzira Prisons Stadium

Gaddafi FC’s hopes of going top of the table were blown away by Maroons FC after a 2-0 loss in a game played today.

Gaddafi FC is lying second on the Elgon group table 2 points behind the table leaders Arua Hill FC so a win today could have enabled them to go on top of the table but Maroons FC’s epic performance couldn’t allow them.

Maroons FC started today’s game with fresh memories from the loss against Paidha Black Angels so they did whatever was necessary to make sure their fans celebrated.

In just 2 minutes of play Maroons FC was ahead through Bronson Nsubuga who found a rebound from Amaku’s shot and placed it between the posts.

The second goal of the day came 11 minutes into the game courtesy of Fred Amaku that gave the Maroons a comfortable early lead.

Maroons FC went into time wasting as early 13 minutes where goalkeeper Eric Dhaira received a warning and Musa Ssali received the first yellow card in the 42nd minute all in the name of time wasting.

Gaddafi FC had a few chances including Eric Dhaira’s save from Pascal Ngobi’s shot from a ball laid in space by Mark Bamukyaaye.

Gaddafi FC’s bad luck continued with Joel Madondo’s injury in the 61st minute and this forced him off the turf and Ronald Bithum was there to replace him.

The soldier boys were unable to capitalize on the red card given to Ssali Musa after a second yellow card in the 78th minute and the 10 men managed to hold onto the game until the final whistle.
