EMMANUEL Okwi lived up to his billing on his homecoming, turning in a stellar performance as SC Villa routed Bright Stars in the Super League at Nakivubo on Tuesday.
Veteran defender Abubaker Tabula turned the ball into his own net off a cross from substitute Ronald Muganga to give Villa the lead midway through the first half.
Okwi who acrimoniously left Tunisia giants Etoile Du Sahel, then latched onto a ball in the 18yard box, beat two defenders in his typical speedy style before firing past Bright Stars goalkeeper Abdullah Sekikubo —effectively silencing the small crowd of rival fans that were heckling him.
Bernard Muwanga pulled one back for Bright Stars from the spot before Ayub Kisalita struck the third for Villa.
In Mbale, Tony Odur scored a hat-trick as KCC whipped CRO 7-0 while SCVU suffered a 1-0 defeat to Proline.
At Wankulukuku, former referee turned-coach Haruna Kebba maintain his unbeaten run since taking over at Kira Young with a 4-1 thumping of Express.
