AUPL: Rampant students shoot UPDF in Jinja

Kirinya Jinja SS continued their impressive run in the Uganda Premier League with another thumping home victory over UPDF.

The first half was largely balanced and lacking excitement as the army men tried to apply a conservative approach in what looked like a bid to fight for a 0-0 draw.

Light drizzles, slightly-chilly weather and a change of approach by the hosts triggered a performance that carried the team to safety and ensured they enter top four.

Joel Madondo powered in the 49th from about 20 yards to surprise an unsuspecting Sekagya in Updf’s goal after his officers slept on duty to leave acres of space to the youngster’s advantage.

Musa Esenu lobbed over the keeper for the second after running through to meet Akol’s long pass before Mutanda closed the party with a sweet strike after a weaving run.

On the other end, Didi Muhammad justified his inclusion into the first team ahead of Emmanuel Rubankene by keeping his backline clear despite Livingstone Mulondo’s shakiness.

Kirinya climb to fourth with 31 points, six short of leaders SC Villa who play later on Saturday in Arua while the soldiers remain captives of the relegation dogfight with only 20 points –one above the red line.
