Wakiso Giants Snatch Stoppage Time Winner against Proline

Proline's dismal form continued on Sunday as Kefa Kisala’s men lost 2-1 to Wakiso Giants.

Vienne Ssekajugo netted twice, including a 90th minute penalty, to secure maximum points for Wakiso Giants and pile misery on Proline at Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.

Ssekajugo's 7th minute goal placed the Purple Sharks into the lead but Bright Anukai's 39th minute strike leveled matters. Things changed in the 90th minute when the referee gave Wakiso Giants a clumsy penalty as Proline's captain Mustapha Mujuzi described it.
