In almost a week of extensive football in the Cup competition, Onduparaka and SC Villa face off for the third time in a week with the home team looking to lift themselves out of the relegation bar line with a win. The Caterpillars boys were pegged back into the relegation equation recently after losing most of their league games under boys today hosted Villa looking to improve their survival chances with a win against Villa today
From the start of halftime, we saw a determined team in Onduparaka trying to use their home advantage to pick something from the game. But given the defensive discipline that these two teams always portray in all their previous matches, SC Villa almost managed to hold the Arua boys to a 0-0 draw going into halftime break, but it was Living Kabon who scored a late goal in the added 4 minutes to give his side a 1-0 lead at halftime whistle.
After 15 minutes of rest and team talk from their various managers, the two teams returned to the pitch with the Jagoos looking to level matters. But it was again Joseph Mutyaba who scored in the 56th minute to extend their lead to 2-0 in the game, only for the goal to be disallowed.SC Villa kept asking questions and throwing all they have got in search for an equalizer through the entire second period in the game, but then Men from Arua equaled all their attacking threat and manages to keep the score line at 1-0, to give them their first win after losing almost six games in a row in the league. The Caterpillars Boys now climb to the 10th position in the league on 27 points, same as Wakiso Giants who have a superior goal difference. Consequently for Villa now they dropped to the 8th position after 23 games played this season.
