Goals from Julius Poloto and Jackson Nunda and an own goal by Manko Kaweesa helped the Kasasiro earn maximum points from an entertaining encounter.

Albert Mugisa handed SC Villa the lead when his  long range shot beat Charles Lukwago for the opener inside fifteen minutes.

KCCA just under five minutes replied, Julius Poloto diverting in Timothy Awany’s cross for the leveller in the 17th minute.

Manko Kaweesa then later diverted the ball into his own net but Bashir Mutanda pulled one back for SC Villa to level at the stroke of halftime.

After the break, Jackson Nunda who replaced Lawrence Bukenya, scored with his first touch and goal that turned out the game winner for the twelve-time champions.
