Proline FC ascends to the summit of the StarTimes FUFA Big League Rwenzori group following their 5-1 win over Masindi based side Dove FC on Thursday at the StarTimes Stadium Lugogo.
In what practically looked a one sided game, Proline dominated the match and created numerous chances but wasted them with forwards Ivan Bogere, Joseph Mandela and Richard Ajuna all culprits.
Following the occasional constant attacks, the Dove FC defence finally gave in the 32nd minute when defender Mustafa Mujjuzi headed in a Bright Anukani corner to put the hosts into the driving seat at half time.
One minute into the second stanza, Proline got a penalty after Mandela was brought down in the forbidden area and right back James Begesa made no mistake to convert the second hosts’ goal.
Three minutes later stylish midfielder Bright Anukani made it three from a low drive shot on the left side of the hapless visiting custodian outside the 18 yard box.
With the Dove team looking exhausted and torn apart, forward Ivan Bogere went onto the score sheet with a tap in to make it 4-0 before Anukani put icing on the cake after a quick one-two with substitute Ismail Kabugu to round off the goalkeeper to score in an empty net.
The visitors pulled a goal back through Robert Baruku in the closing stages of the match after a howler from Proline custodian Keni Saidi.
In the same match, Proline had two goals disallowed for offside in the first half and second half respectively through defender Ibrahim Ssendi and Ivan Bogere.
Noordin Bunjo, Ibrahim Bonyo and Arnold Sserunjogi paved way for Ismail Kabugu, Kintu Sam and Ibrahim Wammanah at different intervals in the second half.
The result took Proline on top of the Rwenzori group with 10 points from four matches played with Kira United next on their card on 8th December at the Mandela National stadium, Namboole.
