URA FC rallied from a goal down to secure a commanding 4-1 victory against bottom-placed Arua Hill in their 11th match at Lugazi.

Joseph Ssemujju’s hat-trick and Ibrahim Dada’s sensational goal highlighted URA’s second consecutive home win under David Obua.

Mansoor Safi’s early opener provided a glimmer of hope for the visitors but ultimately served as a mere consolation by the game’s end.

The Tax Collectors had a shaky start, trailing within six minutes, and could have conceded more before leveling if Arua Hill capitalized on missed scoring opportunities.

Coach Obua’s proactive substitution, bringing on James Begisa for Hassan Kalega, helped neutralize the Visitors’ attacks.

After 25 minutes, URA found their rhythm, netting through Ssemuju’s header and Dada’s spectacular goal within a three-minute span.

Ssemuju’s 26th-minute header from Laban Tibita’s corner leveled the score before Dada’s exquisite finish put the tax collectors ahead.

Despite missing an open chance, Dada’s first-half goal showcased the beauty of URA’s lead.

Ten minutes after the break, Ssemuju’s solo effort extended URA’s lead, followed by his hat-trick goal, assisted by substitute Norman Mayanja.

URA remains unbeaten at home this season, climbing to 7th place with 16 points and gears up to face Busoga United, while Arua Hill, at the bottom with 5 points, prepares to host Maroons in their upcoming fixture.
