Soana secure first away win in Uganda Premier League


Allan Kayiwa scored the only goal of the game as Soana edged Kirinya-Jinja SSS 1-0 on Saturday to secure their first away win in the league this season.

Kayiwa netted the winner in the 6th minute, ending Soana’s win-less run on their travels this season.

Soana had only managed a draw in their first four away games this term. That draw came against Vipers in their previous away game.

The Kavumba side lost to SC Villa, Proline and Onduparaka, but Saturday was their day to enjoy as they secured their first win on the road and only their second this term. It was victory that lifted them above the relegation up to 12th.

Kirinya-Jinja SSS were suffering a second defeat in a row having lost 2-1 to current table leaders Police last week.

The loss drops them two places down to eighth.
