Wakiso Giants Goalkeeper Samson Kiirya put up a man of the match performance as the purple sharks registered their first win of the season with a laboured victory over Mbarara city at the Kakyeka stadium.
Both teams came into the game looking for the first victory with either sides showing desire and character but it was new signing and debutant Kipson Atuheire who made the difference when he netted home for Douglas Bamweyana’s side off an Ibrahim Kasule assist in the 57th minute
The Ankole lions could have restored parity in the 67th minute but the goal was ruled off side.
Jude Semugabi bangled a divine opportunity to level matters when he missed a penalty with 6 minutes left on the clock.
