Abuses from the pavilion and a threatened physical attack from the players all escorted Mufuta to the referee’s room after the match. Francis Onyango took the added time penalty that ended Lyatonde’s unbeaten reign. The shot was a strong blow to Lyantonde, who played the entire second half without head coach Jackson Mayanja, who was sent off the technical bench by Mufuta at half time. With a lot of missed chances from both sides, Lyantonde seemed to be destined for a fifth goalless draw until second half substitute Robert Ojok committed a foul in the box for Mufuta to point to the spot. “Where is Uganda football going with such officiation,” said a furious coach Mayanja after the match. SC Villa, meanwhile, continued with their winning at Lira’s Akii Bua stadium. Maurice Sunguti opened Villa’s chances at 19th minute after dribbling through Arua’s entire defence in a match watched by a capacity crowd. Philip Sozi’s good pass, which was headed in by Timothy Batabaire nine minutes after, sealed the day’s score. Ends
