Onduparaka Fc gave relegation escape a positive mark at Bombo

Sports | The Northern Link UG | Onduparaka FC put a halt to a bad patch in their recent League results after holding title-contendants KCCA Fc at Bombo Military Barracks playground.

This is after they held on to one all-draw with KCCA FC in a replayed game on Thursday.

Denis Iguma broke the deadlock early on for the Kasasiro Boys, but his goal was canceled out by  Filbert Obenchan own goal just before the break.

It was an entertaining opening half as both sides dominated bits of the game, despite not having enough goal-scoring chances.

KCCA scored with their first on target after defender Denis Iguma made a brilliant run to guide in a well-driven Gift Ali corner kick.

In a blink of an eye, KCCA got another chance to double their lead but Patrick Kaddu headed just wide with the goalkeeper Michael Kagiri already beaten by Rogers Mato’s cross.

Despite playing well, Onduparaka had their first real chance at goal after the half-hour when Emmanuel Oketch’s volley agonizingly went off the mark after KCCA failed to clear their lines.

But the Caterpillars did unexpectedly equalizer before the break as KCCA defender Filbert Obenchan headed into his net after a poor communication with Benjamin Ochan, the Kasasiro Boys goalie.

With a score of 1-all at halftime, KCCA head coach Morley Byekwaso made a double change, bringing on Usama Arafat and Sadat Anaku for Mato and Davis Kasirye respectively with the hope that the pair would spark his side back into the lead.

But it was the Arua-based side that got the first chance of the second, but lethal forward Mohammad Shaban failed to connect well.

Onduparaka got another chance from a counter but experienced Ochan made a brilliant save to deny Baden Mujadin before Obechan cleared Ronald Mubiru’s rebounded effort off the line.

With his side struggling to impose their side onto the game, Morley made another change as he handed Erisa Ssekisambu his debut, coming on for a tired Ali just after the hour mark.

Late on, KCCA almost stole all the three points but Anaku rattled the crossbar after coming one on one with Kagiri following a Kaddu link-up.

With the Stalemate, Onduparaka adds one point and remains 13th on the log with 14 points, three above Busoga United.
