Onduparaka & KCCA FC Share Spoils In A Rescheduled Match
Onduparaka Football Club and Kampala City Council Authority Football Club (KCCA FC) settled for a 1-1 draw in their rescheduled StarTimes Uganda Premier League clash on Thursday afternoon at Bombo Military Barracks Stadium in Bombo.
The match was initially scheduled for Monday 28/12/21 at Ababet Green Light stadium but was abandoned in the extra time after Onduparaka supporters invaded the pitch. The fans were protesting a decision by the referee to award KCCA a penalty. This however saw FUFA rescheduled the game today.
It was KCCA FC who opened the score through Denis Iguma who headed home for a 1-0 lead in the 18 minutes of the clock.
Onduparaka FC found the equalizer through Filbert Obenchan who found the back of his own net for a 1-1 draw in the 38 minutes.
Both teams settled for a 1-1 draw in the first stanza.
Muhammad Shaban Ijagason went close to doubling the lead for the Caterpillars in the 52 minutes but missed a tap from Baden’s delivery.
The two teams continued to look for a goal, and turned to their benches to find the equalizer. Okoro and Jarieko came in for Abasi and Oketch while Shaban and Baden were replaced by debutant Norman Ogik and Matata Gabriel respectively.
Ultimately, the match ended in a 1-1 draw with both teams unable to create enough clear-cut opportunities to win the game in the second half.
The result saw the Kasassiro Boys remain in 2nd place of the log with 32 points after 15 games while Onduparaka FC are dwelling in the 4th place from the bottom of the league standings with 14 points after 15 games.
