SC Vipers and Tooro United shared spoils in one of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League games played on Saturday.

Despite dominating the game for most of the minutes, the hosts couldn’t find a cutting edge before referee Emma Kiweewa blew the final whistle.

Tooro United will have their shot stopper Joel Mutakubya, who put up a man of the match performance as the game ended goalless at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende, Entebbe Road.

Mutakubya pulled out reflex saves to keep out Tito Okello and Geoffrey Wasswa’s efforts in the second stanza. The keeper also denied Moses Waiswa late in the game from close range.

Tooro’s best chance of the entire game fell to Steven Omvia but his effort from a tight angle off Allan Kayiwa’s assist, was saved by Fabien Mutombora.

“We deserved to win today because we dominated everything, but it had to end that way,” commented Charles Wasswa after the game. “We got so many chances, and we hope to learn from those errors.”


Tooro United coach Wasswa Bbosa who also blamed the poor officiating, noted that he was at least happy to have got a point after missing a couple of players.

Bbosa added: “My players put into practice what I had told them earlier – If we fail to score, atleast let’s protect the point we came with.”

This is the fourth draw for Vipers who have now collected 25 points from 11 games. The visitors on the other hand, remain 12th on the 16 team log with 14 points.
