FBL: Maroons Squeeze Past Simba

Fufa Big League
Prisons ground, ailment Luzira
Maroons 1-0 Simba

Prison’s side Maroons FC picked maximum points after getting a hard fought 1-0 win over Simba on Thursday at the Luzira prisons ground.

An own goal from Simba’s defender Stephen Mubiru in the 8th minute eventually turned to be the deciding moment in a game where both sides looked blunt in the final third.

A quick interplay between Raphael Winju and striker Patrick Kaddu left the visitors defence beaten before Mubiru converted in his own net in an attempt to save Kaddu’s strike.

The home side continued to dominate the proceedings and almost doubled the lead in the 37th minute when Ronald Kikonyongo set up Winju but the latter fired wide with Simba goalkeeper Richard Kakisole beaten.

The best chance for the visitors came after recess with veteran striker Robert Kimuli formerly at Vipers missing the target after a meeting a well-executed cross from right back Yusuf Jjuko.

Similarly, the prison warders had another chance to stretch the lead but youngster Solomon Walusimbi blasted the chance wide in front of an empty goal.

Asaph Mwebaze, the Maroons coach decided to bring on Maxwell Okello and Peter Otai but the scoreline did not change until the final whistle.


The result means Maroons move to four points in two games after drawing against Sporting United in their opening game while Simba remain on three points in three games.
