It was a high intensity game as the hosts pressurized from the word go.

Police FC secured their first win of the season when they beat Sadolin FC at Kyabazinga Stadium on Saturday.

The two sides were looking for their first victory of the new campaign and it was the visitors who took the three points, thanks to an Anthony Bongole second-half strike.

Police have now climbed out of the relegation zone and up into 8th place with five points from four games played.

Sadolin, on the other hand, remain at the bottom, only ahead of JMC Hippos who have a game to spare.

Saturday’s was a repeat of last season’s duel at the same stadium, where Kavumba-based Police bagged maximum points with the same result.

It was a high intensity game as the hosts pressurized from the word go although they missed a host of chances at goal.

Ten minutes into the game, Nasil Sserwada struck goal-wards but was denied by the woodwork. Nasser Muzamir also came close with a glancing header.

A solid Police defense frustrated the home side and ensured that the opening half remained goal-less.

 

At the hour mark, Sadolin should have taken the lead but skipper Ronald Lukungu missed a penalty after Sserwada was brought down in the box.

Shortly after Patrick Senfuka missed a glorious opportunity, Police new signing Bongole found the net to send the visiting crowd into raptures.

The hosts pushed for a leveler but Police held on to their slim lead to take the day.

Next up, Sadolin will travel to Bright Stars FC while Police FC will be looking to build on their resurgence against Soana FC.
