Its rise to one of the top flight teams over the years has not only opened up the region to the sports world but also enhanced the rise of dozens of young boys from West Nile to football prominence in Uganda and Africa. To many fans and the general public, Onduparaka FC is God sent.
The red card surprisingly motivated the ten-man team to overwhelm Onduparaka with long passes and more pressure which culminated into a goal in the 85th minute. Frank Ssenyondo converted a back pass by Onduparaka’s Kakooza into the net, giving them a 1-0 win.
The home team first conceded two goals to the visitors from Emmanuel Kalyowa and Faizel Muwawu within 12 minutes of the first half, largely as a result of Defensive errors. But Jamal Maliamungu made a tactful curve in the net in the 60th minute to give Onduparaka its lone goal of the game.
The 10km Run scheduled for November 10th will attract participants from all the districts of West Nile. The organisers say over 2500 kits have been sold out, while 300 more are expected to be sold in the next two days.
The agreement was signed on Friday at the Heritage Courts Hotel in Arua town. According to some of the details of the agreement, Onduparaka FC players and officials will travel for official matches and activities for free in the comfort of Zawadi Bus.
In August this year, FUFA declined to clear Green Light stadium as the home ground of Onduparaka FC, citing lack of toilets in the dressing rooms. As a result, Onduparaka FC played its first Uganda Premier league match this season against Police FC at Luzira grounds.
He notes that, the caterpillars will now use the Maroons FC`s playgrounds Luzira grounds as their home ground should they fail to construct the latrine in the dressing room before the 2019/20 premier league season fixtures are released.
The warning followed a round of tension during the Arua district post-primary athletics competitions at Barifa Stadium, in Arua, where hundreds of stick-wielding students, engaged police in running battles for two days as they attempted to attack colleagues from rival schools.
