Solomon Walusimbi scored the only goal as Maroons Proline 1-0 in their Big league game played at Luzira Prisons ground.

The win means that Maroons have beaten Proline home and away having won the first round tie 1-0 (by Fred Amaku) at Lugogo.

The Prison Warders remain unbeaten at home as they recorded their fourth win at home in six matches in Luzira this season.

Walusimbi has now made it two goals from as many games he has played for Maroons since his return to the club in January transfer window.

It was an exciting opening stanza which saw the hosts take control of most proceedings, and they will have William Kiibi to blame for not taking the lead in the first ten minutes.

Kiibi missed a simple close tap-in off Emmanuel Olinga’s square pass before missing another one with a goal keeper to beat in 10th minute to deny hosts the deserved lead.

The hosts kept asking questions and the unmarked Walusimbi scored with a half volley off Kiibi’s beautiful effort, but credit will also go to Caasar Olega’s dirty work from the middle of the park.

In the 40th minute, the Visitors through Hamza Mulbuzi nearly equalised but his finish after dribbling past goalkeeper Akol Emmanuel was so poor as it went far wide to end first stanza in hosts favour.

The second half saw an improved Proline side that kept pushing for an equaliser.

The pressure nearly paid off after five minutes into the second half, but Ibrahim Sendi’s unexpected free header went few inches wide.

Even when they utilised all their substitution options, Proline failed to create any other open chance to tame the hosts.

Maroons picked momentum in the last 10 minutes which saw Walusimbi’s 80th minute strike deflected into a corner before substitute Abraham Tusibira’s close range finish in the four added minutes of the 90, was brilliantly saved by Isma Maganda.

The result keeps Maroons in 2nd position with 22 points, two point behind leader Black power, and they will play Ndejje University at Luwero, in their next fixture.

Proline remain in 9th position with 13 points, they will host Black Powers in their next fixture.
