Green Light stadium, Arua
KCCA FC had in the previous two seasons failed to pick maximum points against Onduparaka FC at their home, Green Light stadium in Arua.
A 2-1 loss during the 2016/17 season and a one all draw in the 2017/18 campaign meant, the 12 league time league champions had collected just one point out of the possible six.
However, the record was put to a halt on Friday as KCCA FC edged Onduparaka FC 2-0 a result that also meant the team went joint top with URA FC who won 1-0 against Ndejje University FC.
Allan Okello and Timothy Dennis Awany fresh from the national team scored a goal in either half to guide Mike Hillary Mutebi’s team to victory.
Okello who seems to always have Onduparaka’s numbers whenever the two teams face off opened the scores after eight minutes heading home from close range.
The youngster who was scoring his sixth goal in as many games against was well stationed to head home a well delivered free kick by Mustafa Kiiza. The free kick arose from Hassan Muhammad’s foul on Patrick Kaddu.
It should be noted that, Okello’s debut at KCCA FC came against Onduparaka FC two years ago and the left footed midfielder announced his arrival with a hat trick.
Onduparaka made efforts to level matters with Amis Muwonge, Viane Ssekajugo and Ceasar Okhuti coming close but it was KCCA FC who instead doubled the lead.
Skipper Awany headed home midway through the second stanza to seal victory for the visitors.
KCCA FC moved top of the table on seven points same as second placed URA FC while Onduparaka FC dropped to sixth.
