Maroons FC 2-0 Express FC

Maroons FC condemned Express FC to a third successive defeat under new coach Baker Mboowa in a game played at Luzira.

Fred Amaku and midfielder Ronald Orombi scored the goals for the Prison Warders to ensure a 2-0 win over the uninspiring Red Eagles.

Orombi who was eventually named the man of the match, had the best attempt in the first half as his strike hit the lower post in the 26th minute.

Subsequently Amaku thought he had scored on the rebound only to be ruled out for offside.

Amaku finally broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute with a wonderful strike from 25 yards that hit the post and eventually came off goalkeeper Abdul Kimera’s back to hit the back of the next.

On another day, it would have stood as an own goal by Kimera but the goal was attributed to Amaku instead.

Orombi doubled the lead in an almost similar style 10 minutes later. He received a ball from Abraham Tusubira and sent a powerful shot from about 30 yards.

Express who had little positives in the match to write home about, had Isaac Wagoina come close to finding a consolation in the final minutes.

After the match, Maroons assistant coach Simon Peter Ojok said his side resorted to shooting from a distance as their opponents were too compact defensively to break down.

The win took Maroons to 34 points from 22 games in the 6th position while Express remained on 29 points in 9th place.

Maroons will visit Mbarara City on Friday 5th March at Kakyeka while Express will host URA FC in their subsequent league game on Saturday 6th April.
