The Islamic University in Uganda Sports Club (IUIU) beat Mbale Garage Football Club in the Eastern Regional League Bukedi Group to  maintain their unbeaten home run.

IUIU SC registered a 1-0 win at home  against Mbale Garage FC in a match that took place at IUIU playground. 

The muslim boys secured their win through winger Simiyu’s goal that came in the 76 minute with an assist from Kagwa Philpi who came  from the bench.

IUIU registered their second win following  the first win that they grabbed from ThunderWolves and now Mbale Garage.

They are now having one draw which was made at home against  Busia Home boys. and one defeat when they lost a game against Busia Fisheries in an away game. 

While speaking to Keba Haruna the head Coach IUIU SC says  Mbale Garage was a good team but his boys were better that is why they managed to win the game.

“Today’s win has given us a big  boost as we prepare for Inter Universities  games, they have found the boys when they are more motivated”. Said coach Keba.

He also revealed IUIU’s  plans to travel to Ndejje University on Friday night for their Inter Universities game due to take place on 16-21 of December 2022.

When asked on how he manages the two tournaments since the club is supposed to have their fifth game of Eastern Regional League which is meant to take place 16th of December 2022 on Saturday, Keba revealed that they  wrote to Eastern Regional League requesting to have their game on 15th Friday before leaving for the Inter Universities games not as it states on the fixture.

Miburo Juma  the assistant Coach Mbale Garage accepted the defeat and said  his boys played to their best  but it wasn’t their day and they still need to do more to improve  their striking line.

“We had more chances to penetrate IUIU but we failed. We shall work upon our striking line so that we get a squad that will look for  goals”.Coach Miburo Juma noted.
