Action between SC Villa and Vipers SC.
Vipers SC clinched a vital away point against SC Villa in a hard-fought match at Mutesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku on Tuesday. 

The Jogoos had high hopes of securing maximum points, with several supporters, including the Katikiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga, rallying behind them in their pursuit of silverware. However, this couldn't help the Jogos secure the much-needed victory.

For the defending league champions, Vipers, it was a bittersweet result, especially as they embarked on a new chapter without head coach Livingstone Mbabazi, who had departed just hours before the game.

This draw elevated the Venoms to 42 points, propelling them to third place, trailing the table-toppers Kitara by a mere two points, with SC Villa closely following in fourth place with 41 points.

"A point is not bad, but it’s what we got, we thank God for that because we played a very good game, our opponents are also among the title contenders so you can’t downplay that.” Vipers Captain Milton Kariisa told URN on the sidelines after the game. 

“We are looking at each game at a time, so we are looking at the next game, hopefully, we shall get the maximum points, but you know football is funny, you cannot predict the results.” Added Kariisa

On the field, both teams carved out opportunities, but neither could find the elusive breakthrough. Vipers' Yunus Sentamu missed a glaring chance with a free header set up by Captain Milton Kariisa, while SC Villa's Patrick Kakande saw his effort sail over the bar.

SC Villa's goalkeeper Jack Komakech stood tall, denying Umar Lutalo's well-curled second-half free-kick, ensuring the scoreline remained level.

We have managed to pick a point, as you know a derby, is not easy, but this point will help us remain in the title race. We are going to go back to the drawing board to clear the few mistakes we made before our next game.” SC Villa’s Patrick Kakande told URN 

Hoima-based club Kitara FC, remains at the top of the table with 44 points, closely followed by BUL FC from Jinja with 43 points. Notably, both Vipers and SC Villa have a game in hand, potentially altering the league landscape in the upcoming fixtures.
