In a one-sided affair, Maroons took the charges straight away and after 7 minutes, goalkeeper Jamil Kiyimba was already tested when he spilled Walusimbi’s effort before punching Felix Okot’s rebound into a corner.

In the 17th minute, the visitors almost scored at the other end but Erias Birungu’s close range shot went over the bar.

Towards half an hour mark, Walusimbi tapped home Darious Ojok’s right wing cross to hand the Prison warders the lead.

Amaku would have doubled the lead with Walusimbi’s through ball but his wrong footwork denied him a chance.

At restart, the visitors who looked rusty had the first chance of the second stanza but Emmanuel Akol was spot on when he punched out Mugume’s teasing cross into a corner.

Tusubira scored a replica of the opener when he tapped in Walusimbi’s left wing cross to double hosts lead.

In 73rd minute, Walusimbi completed his brace when he dribbled past Maxwell Owachigiu before beating Jamil Kiyimba with a beautiful finish at near post.

With 10 minutes to play, Amaku capitalized on Kitara’s calamity defending who failed to clear the ball due to miscommunication to score in an empty net.

The Prison warders would have scored more but Amaku was a little too wasteful and so Patrick Bayiga whose weak short was cleared off the line before another close range shot hit a cross bar.

Maroons who are now in third with 32 points, will play relegated Nyamitobora before ending the campaign with MYDA.
