AUPL: Lweza hold Soana in Kavumba

Uganda premier league

Soana 2-2 Lweza

Soana were held to a 2-2 draw by Lweza in a thrilling game played on Friday at Kavumba Recreation Centre ground in Wakiso.

In a game where possession kept fluctuating from one side to another, patient Soana took the lead in the 18th minute through midfielder Emma Kalyowa.

Kalyowa converted from a free kick after a foul on Willy Kavuma outside the area by Patrick Ssembuya to give the hosts a deserved lead.

However, decease the Lweza took charge afterwards launching several attacks. Skipper Paddy Muhumuza had an opportunity to level matters in the 22nd minute but his feeble effort hit the side net.

It was forward Hassan Kikoyo who found the back of the net a minute to the half hour mark tapping home Fred Nkata’s low cross to even the score.

Before Soana could recover from the Kikoyo goal, Lweza took the lead through captain Muhumuza three minutes later.

The diminutive holding midfielder jumped high to head home Yasin Mugume’s cross. Mugume had literally left defender Samuel Oguttu to tatters before finding Muhumuza and the visitors headed to the tunnel for the mandatory break with a 2-1 lead.

Sam Ssimbwa,the Soana headed coach introduced Allan Kayiwa for Willy Kavuma after the interval and the change paid off dividends immediately with Kayiwa levelling matters four minutes after coming on.

Soana kept pressing for the winner but Lweza fell back to settle for a point until centre referee Aisha Ssemambo called for the final whistle.

Ssimbwa,the Soana coach indicated they defended poorly and allowed the opponents to score with ease.

“We dominated them for longer spells but I think the defence let us down today. we conceded two simple goals,” said Ssimbwa after the game.

The result means Soana drops from third to fourth on 17 points while Lweza climb two slots to ninth position dispensing Proline and The Saints, all on 12 points but with a better goal difference.
