A first half goal from Simon Mbariza was enough to fire Police Football Club to victory against Bright Stars FC at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo on Match Day 11 of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
The 26th minute wonder strike from the left footed midfielder that turned out to be the match winner on Wednesday evening saw Abdullah Mubiru’s side return to winning ways following their 1-0 defeat on Sunday away to Vipers SC.
The result elevated the Cops to 7th place on the 16-team log with 17 points from 11 games while Fred Kajoba’s side remain 3rd with 20 points from a similar number of games.
The day’s goal scorer was subsequently voted as Pilsner Man of the Match, pocketing a cash prize of UGX 100,000.
