  1. Jinja SS 2-2 SC Villa

URA 2-0 Paidha Black Angels

Bright Stars 3-1 Maroons

All league debutants came and witnessed how rude how life in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League can be.

Without scoring a goal, all three promoted sides lost.

Paidha Black Angels, who were lucky to have their game played, lost 2-0 to URA courtesy of former SC Villa winger Vitalis Tabu.

Paidha were undone by licencing challenges and the lack of a qualified coach as Mohammad Kisekka was found wanting. Stand-in coach Michael

Aloya said that disorganization cost them the game.

For URA coach, Sam Ssimbwa, such points are vital for a side with title ambitions.

Nyamityobora also lost by the same margin against Onduparaka as Vianne

Sekajugo opened the scoring in the first half before goal keeper

Nicholas Sebwato sealed the three points with a well taken penalty in the second half.

Ndejje University were resilient until the 92nd minute when Davis

Kasirye scored for league champions Vipers.

KCCA had a 2-1 home win over Tooro United while SC Villa drew 2-2 with Kirinya Jinja SS away.

Nelson Senkatuuka also scored a brace as 10-man Bright Stars beat Maroons 3-1 in Mwererwe.

Action continues tomorrow with Police hosting BUL at Lugogo.
