• Soltilo Bright Stars 1-0 Gaddafi
• BUL FC 0-0 Onduparaka
Derrick Ngobi’s lone strike was all that Soltilo Bright Stars needed to edge past visiting Gaddafi to record the third straight Uganda Premier League win at Kavumba recreation center on Saturday.
Ngobi headed Bright Stars home inside three minutes after meeting a well weighed cross by Yasin Mugume to nod the ball on the far post leaving goalkeeper Paul Mujampani stranded on his line.
The dominant side, Bright Stars dominated exchanges and Ngobi nearly doubled the advantage only for dreadlocked Jamaldine Buchochera to retrieve his goal-bound attempt off the line.
Also, Emmanuel Loki and Joseph Marvin Youngman wasted scoring opportunities, firing wide from the goal mouth before skipper Nelson Ssenkatuka wasted a counter attack launched from the center line.
Gaddafi’s few chances fell to Brian Kalumba whose shot was denied by Derrick Emmanuel Were. The lanky custodian also dealt with Paul Musamali’s shot while Richard Basangwa ballooned his chances in the sky.
The 3rd straight win sends Bright Stars to 30 points, jumping two slots to the 10th on the log and now six points above relegation.
In their last two games, Bright Stars beat Tooro United and Wakiso Giants with identical wins (2-1) on the road and at Kavumba.
Bright Stars will return to action on Tuesday 3rd May to play their rescheduled fixture against KCCA FC at the MTN Omondi stadium in Lugogo.
After the third consecutive defeat, the Soldier Boyz, who slipped to 12th on 28 points, just four above relegation, will host Tooro United next Friday.
