UFL: KU leave it late to beat Ndejje University

David GOMBE

Two time Pepsi University Football league champions Kampala University beat Ndejje University 2-1 in a group E contest at Kibuli.

The result saw KU bounce back from their 3-0 defeat at Gulu University in their opening game.

Ndejje beat Uganda Martyrs University 1-0 in their first group E game at the Arena of Visions.

Second half goals from Lakomakech Bill and Mayanja Said inspired Vincent Tumusiime’s side to maximum points.

Daniel Kitara scored the visitors only goal of the game at Kibuli.

Following a barren first half, Lakomakech tapped the home side the lead in the 53rd minute.

Ndejje restored parity through Kitara in the 70th minute.

The hosts were awarded a late penalty deep in stoppage time after Gilbert Wanume was fouled inside the forbidden area.

Mayanja was entrusted with the responsibility and calmly converted from the spot to secure maximum points for his side.

Kampala University and Ndejje both have garnered three points in two games and are below Gulu University who will next face Uganda Martyrs.

Meanwhile, action in the University league resumes on Thursday as Bugema University host Islamic University.
