Kumi’s desire for a comeback from the drubbing by Bugema, will motivate the boys from Eastern Uganda
University Football League
Gulu University v Kumi University
Gulu University will be looking to bounce back from their 4-0 defeat at the hands of UCU last week when they take on Kumi, who were equally humbled 5-2 by Bugema University.
Kumi’s desire for a comeback from the drubbing by Bugema, will motivate the boys from Eastern Uganda to go for a win against Gulu who did not manage a goal against UCU.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday Nkumba University settled for a 1-1 home draw against St. Lawrence University after dominating long spells of the game.
St. Lawrence University, who were the visitors of the day, took an early lead in the 11 minute after Lubwama Joshua converted an incredible free-kick from the edge of the box, curling the ball into the top right hand corner of the goal to beat Nkumba goalkeeper Amutuhaire Ronald.
The hosts continued pressing in the second half and finally leveled matters in the 60 minute after captain, Wasswa Emmanuel tapped in Kiberu Derrick’s pass from the right side of the pitch.
They should have taken the lead several times after but were denied by the visitor’s keeper, Gita Moses.
The result takes St. Lawrence to the top of Group B and leaves Nkumba in third place.
