Super 8: Perfect Send off for Timbe As URA Eject KCCA

Friday, August 25th

URA gave their head coach Sam Timbe a perfect send off thanks to a 2-1 win over KCCA to reach the FUFA Super Eight Final.

Goals from new signings debutant Ivan Ahimbisibwe and Tibita Laban gave URA an important win.

Filbert Obenchan scored the only goal for KCCA who will now face SC Villa in the classification.

KCCA will rue missed chances including one from Moses Waiswa who saw his penalty saved by Dennis Otim after Arafat Usama was brought down in the forbidden area.

And when URA’s chance arrived, Ivan Ahimbisibwe headed in a well delivered cross from Joseph Ssemujju to take a lead.

A few minutes later Ahimbisibwe nearly doubled URA’s lead but couldn’t go past goalkeeper Antony Emojong.

With half an hour played, Obenchan drew matters level when he headed in Arafat Usama’s cross.

Muhammad Shaban came close for KCCA but couldn’t strike past Otim.

As the game looked to be heading to straight shootouts, Tibita bundled in what proved to be the winner!

Brazilian duo of Gabriel and Vinicuis Micheal could have brought the game level in the final minutes but couldn’t collaborate for a fine finish.

URA FC will now play BUL FC in the Fufa super 8 finals.

It was a strong display for URA who days back lost head coach Sam Timbe.
