Maroons whip Sporting United, edge close to promotion


Maroons 4-1 Sporting United

Maroons thrashed Sporting United 4-1 on Thursday at Luzira Prisons ground in the FUFA Big League to move within a point of gaining direct promotion back to the Uganda Premier League.

With talisman Patrick Kaddu out, Pius Obuya took charge scoring in either half with Solomon Walusimbi and Musa SSali getting the other goals.

The host were 2-0 at halftime courtesy of Obuya and Ssali but the visitors had a brilliant start to the second half and scored moments after the break through Ronnie Okullu.

Obuya then made it three with his second of the day and Walusimbi put the game to bed as the Prisoners returned to winning ways.

With rivals Ndejje settling for a 1-1 draw with Bright Light and Kira United drawing goalless against Paidha Black Angels, Maroons are a point away from earning direct promotion to the Uganda Premier League with two matches to play.
