University Football League defending champions, Uganda Christian University (UCU) registered a 2-0 victory against debutants Victoria University at UCU Grounds, Mukono on Tuesday.
Enoch Sekandi and Isaac Ofoyrwoth were on the score sheet as UCU started their Title defence with a victory.
Ten minutes into the game, Sekandi placed the ball in the back of the net after great chemistry from the team to pull off some magic.
The home side continued to command great spells of possession as the crowds chanted in joy and excitement.
After recess, Victoria University tried to press hard for a leveller but fired blanks due to low ball sense in the final third.
Eight mights passed the top of an hour, speedy merchant Isaac Ofoyrwoth went for power as his freekick shook the net to make it two.
Jimmy Mwera’s charges held their nerves tight and managed to scoop three points in the opening game of the tourney.
Victoria University who were playing their first in this competition will have to go back with lessons picked before they face their groupmates Kumi and International University of East Africa (IUEA).
