Goalkeeper Douglas Kisembo denied Henry Kitegenyi from the spot as visiting UPDF FC held on to beat Kansai Plascon in a FUFA Big league game played on Sunday.

The Army side laboured to a 2-1 win in an entertaining thriller at Bishop SS in Mukono.

UPDF FC went into the lead courtesy of Ezekiel Katende’s strike in the 25th minute.

Steven Bogere’s side doubled the advantage before halftime when Fred Kalanzi was at the end of Herbert Katongole long ball after it had passed in between the keeper’s leg.

Henry Kitegenyi, who trained with UPDF FC before he was snatched by Kansai in January, brought one back to halve the deficit in second half to give the visitors hope of a comeback.

Ronald Owiny handled the ball in the area to give Kansai a penalty, and a chance for an equaliser in the closing stages of the game.

Kisembo, making a debut for UPDF, parried away Kitegenyi’s effort before it was cleared away from danger for the visitors to take all the maximum points.

Kisembo, is one of the new additions for UPDF who had ended the first round in fourth place with 14 points in the Rwenzori group. They now leapfrog Kigezi to take third place with 17.

Elsewhere, Ivan Ahimbisibwe bagged an hat-trick as Nyamityobora beat Kigezi Homeboyz while Brian Muruuli also scored thrice in Kitara’s Derby win over Doves at Katusabe grounds in Masindi.

New Villa FC played two games in a space of two days – after their Friday fixture at Luzira was pushed to Saturday because the ground had a Maroons fixture in UPL. They held both Water and Ndejje University in their two away games.
