League record champions Sports Club Villa beat Soana Football Club by 1-0 at Masaka Recreation Ground as stalemates dominated the opening day of the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL).
After a virgin opening 45 minutes, Vitalis Tabu scored a free kick in the 74th minute as the Jogoos edged Soana in Masaka.
Elsewhere, goalless draws were the results from all the other fixtures of the day while Masavu against Police FC was abandoned with reports suggesting that only nine players of the hosts (Masavu) had licenses.
In a tweet to their official handle, Police FC noted that;
