Maurice Sunguti, the Kenyan striker who lost his shooting boots in the last five games, scored the first in the 18th minute — his only goal since one in the NSSL opener against Iganga a month ago. A high ball from midfielder Hakim Magumba found Molly Byekwaso wide of the right flank and his cross flew past hapless Heroes keeper Bujakeri Froduard for Sunguti to stab in goal. Magumba and Ismail Kigozi put it beyond the visitors, who pulled one back through Hamisi Kitagenda. Magumba got his chance in the 32nd minute, when he converted a penalty after Philip Ssozi was brought down in the box by Heroes’ defender Jerry Ajule. It was a frustrating sight of Sunguti, Nestroy Kizito, Sozzi, Magumba wasting open chances.The most glaring was when the Kenyan striker eluded his marker, rounded the keeper but shot wide. Although the trio missed several seaters in the second half, there was relief at Villa Park that Sunguti had broken his goal jinx that started March 16, The 12-time league champions had reason to worry before kick-off as they were without Sunguti’s strike partner Saidi Abed who is on a short holiday in Congo, Elsewhere, Jackson Mayanja’s unbeaten URA Lyantonde FC rose to the occasion after a string of draws to beat Arua Garage 2-0 in Lyantonde with goals from Ssali (18th ) and Mbaziira in the 38th minute. ends
