The lone goal came off Philip Obwinyi’s free kick that was wickedly deflected in goal by defender George Lutalo. Police, who employed a crowd-pleasing passing game, combative midfield and packed defence completely shut out the Jogoos in the first half, but were toothless in front of goal. Villa introduced Phillip Ssozi for a colourless Alex Isabirye, and Kabagambe for Said Abed which tilted the game in their favour and yielded the second half free kick. “ What was very important for us today is that we won the game and got the maximum points. We shall try to improve as we play more games,” Villa coach Micho Sredojevich said before shaking hands with his predecessor Paul Hasule. “We knew they are giants and we tried to play our best. But other than the free kick, I think we played a better game,” said Hasule. At Masaka, Moses Mutebi’s fifth minute header earned Masaka LC their first win, while, visiting Kasese held Arua Garage in Lira. ekomye
