Match report: Maroons FC defy odds to win at Ndejje University

Maroons Football Club rallied from behind with goals from Norman Odipio, Fred Amaku and Kiibi William to establish lead at the top of the FUFA Big League log.

The formidable one force army had trailed 1-0 going into the final minute of the half time but Norman Odipio's low drive shot over hauled George Akena's 4th minute opener.

Fred Amaku's spectacular shot and Kiibi William's sublime from the edge of the area gave Maroons two second half goals and a fourth consecutive win in the FUFA BIG LEAGUE.

The match was p
layed in a cloudy condition and it was a classic one as the scoreline suggests.

Earlier in the game, Ndejje's center back Owalamu nearly put the ball in his own net after failing to deal with Fred Amaku's lowly placed shot but Ndejje's goalie Brady Wokorach came to the rescue.

Wokorach became an icing eight minutes later denying Musa Ssali's thunder bolt efforts back into play, Tusubira Abraham rebounded but Ndejje's Peter Ouma again came to the rescue to keep the host in the lead.

At 31 minutes, Fred Amaku came close to the score sheet with a beauty of a turn but was again denied by Brady Wokorach.

Towards the end of first half, Norman Odipio exposed Wokorach with a low placed far post shot straight into the back of the net after being well set by Fred Amaku to level the matters at Half-time.

48 minutes into the second half, un marked Fred Amaku powered the visitors into the lead after being assisted by Tusubira's well calculated intelligence through the Ndejje's defense line.

Tusubira Abraham went close when two of his shots were saved by back-up keeper Wokorach after marauding runs on the left, while Ssali Musa hit the woodwork with a low, angled finish after a mazy dribble.

In the 90+6 minute, Maroons FC finally secured a safe lead when great play on the left by Walusimbi Solomon and substitute Darius Ojok set up Kiibi William who drilled low into the bottom left from the edge of the box.

While speaking to Head Coach Senfuma Mohammed said he is impressed by the performance of the boys and motivated them to continue yielding such results, "they played well, the spirit was so high, given our current form, my boys are ready to face any side in the league", he concluded.

Maroons currently lie second on the log only two points at 25 points behind Blacks Power who have 27.
