BUL edge Police in five-goal thriller

BUL FC survived a late scare posed by Police to sneak with a win in a five-goal fest in Jinja.

The cooking oil manufacturers were ahead in the fourth minute through Richard Wandyaka’s well taken penalty. The midfielder had set up Tibita with a well calculated through pass but the striker was hacked down as he tried to strike.

The Cops rallied back to restore parity a minute after restart. Arafat and Ocen launched down in the left wing before crossing for Mugisa who calmly controlled inside twelve yards and turned with a ferocious shot past Sebwalunyo.

The hosts reclaimed the lead six minutes later, capitalizing on another defensive error in the Police half. The back-line failed to clear a long ball which Douglas Owori outpaced his markers to pick, dribbled Kisembo and tapped in an empty net.

The goal finally arrived in the 57th. Mugisa disposed off Otim on the left and sent a long diagonal pass that found Ocen at the right place to tap in.

Faisal Muledhu finally ensured the hosts remain with all the points with a cool finish off Tibita’s low pass.

The result sends BUL to 8th with 28 points same as Police who are a place above.
