The Eastern Giants ends the season in 4th position, with 52 points, to record their best ever performance since joining the league in 2011.
Villa who started the game in 11th, ended the season in 12th, with 33 points, following Bright Stars win over Mbarara,
There was nothing much from both sides going forward in first opening 30 minutes, as both sides lacked sharpness.
Oketch came close to find the opener in the 34th minute but his tap in off Onek’s well measured cross, went few inches wide.
Saddam Juma skied away a freekick before Isaac Ogwang was late for Muhindo’s cross to end the first half goalless.
Six minutes after the restart, Oketch found the back of the net to push visitors upfront, and which proved to be the match winner at the end of the night
Ten minutes after, Travis Mutyaba had a chance to level matters after being set by Juma, but his effort lacked power as Kalyowa made a routine save .
With 14 minutes to play, substitute Martin Aprem, had a chance to make it 2-0 but his attempt was too casual and easy for goalkeeper Meddie Kibirige to save.
In the 80th minute, SC Villa had another with a free kick but Amir Kakomo fluffed the chance as Villa ended the season with 12 losses.
The win is a huge boost for BUL who will be hoping for silverware when they face Vipers in the finals of Stanbic Uganda cup, on 12th, next month.
