*Maroons 1-0 Gaddafi
*Blacks Power 0-1 SC Villa
*Vipers 4-0 Onduparaka
Fred Amaku scored the only goal of the game as Maroons beat Gaddafi 1-0 to end its five-match winless streak in a UPL game played at Luzira Prison Grounds.
Maroons had last won a league game 40 days ago when they beat KCCA 1-0 at Luzira.
Amaku’s game winner also saw the Prison Warders record their only third win of the season which proved to be a unmatched relief to Muhammad Senfuna.
For the visitors who failed to match a classy performance displayed in their 1-0 win over holders Vipers, continue to struggle away from home as they lost another chance to record their first back to back wins.
And they will have themselves to blame after dominating the entire first half and failed to create any clear cut scoring opportunity.
Maroons who did more of the defending in the opening 45 minutes, it was evident that they will as well struggle to create a single shot on target in the first stanza.
The withdraw of Gaddafi defender Jamaldine Buchochera at the start of second half saw Maroons taking advantage and they started to dominate the proceedings.
And in just 10 minutes into the second half, shafik Bakaki produced a block on the goal line to deny Amaku after receiving from Cephas Kambugu.
Few moments later, with Simon Tamale already beaten in a contest outside his area, Alex Kitata had an empty net to break the deadlock but his effort was headed off from goal line by a covering Belmos Opio.
Goalkeeper Joel Mutakubya was called in action when he pulled out a brilliant save to parry Godwin Kitagenda powerful attempt into a corner.
In the 80th, Amaku who was silent in the entire game, squeezed a clever placement after receiving from Samson Kigozi at the edge of the box to beat helpless Mutakubwa.
Maroons stays in 11th position with 13 points and will visit onduparaka on Sunday December 11.
Gaddafi remain eighth with 15 points and will host Blacks Power on the same day.
