Arua Hill had a dream start to the game after Wahab headed them into an early second minute lead.
The hosts could have added their tally but neither Toha Rashid nor Innocent Media could double the tally but the latter had his goal ruled out for offside.
However, it was Kawawa who volleyed in for the home side in the 26th minute to double their lead.
Three minutes later, Express pulled one back through Ntege to give them hope of a come back.
In the second half, Media added his name on the scoresheet in the 57th minute to extent the hosts lead.
The hosts couldn’t settle for less and in the 75th minute, Wahab sinked to to complete his brace capitalising on a miscommunication between the defenders.
