SUPL: SC Villa bounce from behind to beat Arua Hill

SC Villa’s resilience and patience paid off as they bounced from a goal down to beat Arua Hill in the Startimes Premier League.

Rashid Toha placed the visitors ahead before Travis Mutyaba equalised and later Gift Fred sealed maximum points for Villa at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

Towering defender Toha climbed highest to head Arua Hill ahead from a corner kick duly delivered by Gaddafi Wahab in the third minute.

Wahab searched for Alfred Leku with a through pass but SC Villa custodian Meddie Kibirige was quick to save matters.

A great interplay between Rashid Kawawa and Innocent Maduka nearly paid off but the Nigerian was cautioned to be offside.

Five minutes after half an hour mark, Travis Mutyaba levelled matters to regain the hopes of SC Villa on a sunny evening.

At the start of the second half, Samuel Sekamatte replaced Stephen Kabuye for Arua Hill.

Ibrahim Magandazi nearly fell for Mutyaba’s trickery in the dangerous area but his smart block saved the Kongolo.

Davis Sekajja had a clear chance to put the Joogo ahead after meeting Sadam Juma’s delivery but custodian Eric Kibowa calmly collected the ball.

With five minutes to play, Gift Fred powerfully head the ball in the back of the net to place the home side ahead.

The win guides SC Villa into the 10th position at 33 points while Arua Hill sit fourth with 49 points.

In the next game, Arua Hill will host Express FC at Barifa Stadium while SC Villa will travel to Kyabazinga Stadium against BUL FC on Saturday May 21.
