usoga United hosted Express FC at the FUFA Technical Centre (Njeru) in game week 25 of the Uganda Premier League today. After winning their all of last five games, the Red Eagles of Kampala made a trip to Busoga United today looking for nothing more than 3 points, and for crying out loud they had the manpower to get the job done in Jinja today. 

During the opening first period in the game, Express winger Goeffrey Lwesibawa was at the center of all proceedings as he gave his side the lead in the 21st minutes, before he doubled his team’s advantage in the 28th minute. 

At 2:0 up, the visitors had control of the game and defended relentlessly to keep the score line that way going into half time break.

After the halftime break, it was the same old name in Godfrey Lwesibawa that the commentator uttered with a lot of vigor after he netted his third in the game to put his team 3:0 up in the 52nd minute. This goal completely sucked all the energy from Busoga United boys, who were looking short in manpower right from the beginning after they started the game without key players like Douglas Muganga and Shariph Kimbowa.

With the men from Jinja still looking disorganized, the Red Eagles found another goal in the In the 64th minute through Eric Kambale who had a very quiet evening but eventually scored to put their score line at 4:0 with almost 26 minutes remaining on the clock till the end of the match.

The implication of this win at the top of the table is immense for the Red Eagles who have climbed to the summit of the table with 55 points and now await what happens in the game between Kyetume FC and Uganda Revenue Authority tomorrow. For Busoga United on the other hand, this loss means that they continue to be dragged more and more into the relegation zone as they now sit in 13th position with 26 points and a win for Kyetume FC tomorrow could bridge that gap to only 3 points.
