On a rather unusual Martyr’s day that has been characterized by several events, among which Covid-19 taking most of the possession, some unnoticed scenarios took place in the same day, some went on well for others or unwell for some.
In real focus has been the nature and extent to which this evening’s Startimes sponsored Big League results have appeased or frustrated some sections of the fans.
At Luzira Prisons Ground, Yumbe side Calvary Fc succumbed to Amaku Fred’s double to further sink their hopes of making it to the playoff after the end of the regular season. The result means Maroons Fc have leapfrogged Mbale Heroes with one (1) point and Calvary Fc on goal difference.
Another Westnile side, Paidha Black Angels and eastern side, Mbale Heroes have been pushed down into the red zone in a more serious rehearsal for the Regional League next season.
At the Emokori grounds in Bukedea, Blacks Power Fc failed to capitalize on home advantage to get closer on points to pace setters Arua Hill Fc after a barren draw with Jinja side Gadafi Fc.
This result leaves Arua Hill on top spot with a 3 point advantage over Blacks Power and Gadafi Fc having played the same number of games.
These results make Elgon Group very enticing since Hassan Zzungu’s boys have to travel to Westnile to take on a bogey Paidha Black Angels side and after return home for a romantic date with Arua Hill Fc.
This therefore means that the next 2 matchday fixtures and results, regardless of venue and score lines will surely guarantee the champion, playoff positions as well as relegated sides.
For Arua Hill Fc, victory in the always heated Westnile derby against Calvary Fc on Sunday will guarantee a fairer level of assurance on automatic qualification and, that fixture, at all costs, must yield maximum points because their next game against Gadafi Fc in Jinja might raise more answers than questions, given the result of the first round encounter at Barifa in Arua.
