AUPL: Esenu stars as Kirinya apprehend Police

Musa Esenu scored and assisted a goal as Kirinya Jinja SSS tamed Police to earn their second consecutive win in the second round of the Uganda Premier League.

Esenu set up Anthony Mayanja for the opening goal and then slipped below an advancing Kisembo to complete off Akol's brilliant pass. 

With their head coach, Charles Ayiekoh, watching from the stands due to a suspension, the school boys controlled much of the affair.

Esenu missed a chance to complete his brace in the 75th after Madondo had put him through. The striker beat the offside trap and set set himself for a one-on-one with Kisembo but his final delivery skewed beyond expectations.

For the first goal, Isaac Ntege collected a long clearance down the right wing and advanced on his lane before releasing Esenu. The number 20 dummied off Madoi and Senfuka before filing in a low cross from the inside of his right foot.

Amaku miscalculated the pass which found Mayanja unmarked before slotting in as the cops scrambled to shutter him down.

The second half was largely a copy of the first with the law-enforcers struggling to beat the hosts defensive midfielder, Godfrey Akol who was arguably the best player on the pitch. 

Esenu sealed the victory in the 70th with a calmly converted goal. Akol cleverly picked him out with a tricky long chip before he tipped over Kisembo to send the half-packed stands to a frenzy. 

 Kirinya climb to sixth place with 24 points, one place and point below their day's opponents.
