If it was a love affair, Wakiso Giants and Arua Hill were good enough to be declared husband and wife.

This season alone, the Purple Sharkas as they love to be called conceded 6 dry shafts from their West Nile counterparts.

Four first half goals including 2 in the opening 15 minutes saw Livingston Mbabazi stamp authority over his former paymasters Wakiso Giants.

They have completed a remarkable double over them with a 6-2 goal aggregate.

Man of the match Rashid Kawawa opened the onslaught in the 4th minute with a close range header thanks to a cross from Alfred Leku.

Leku turned scorer 4 minutes with an equally superb goal past a helpless Derrick Emukule.

Kawawa returned to haunt them in the 14th minute with a goal of the season contender. He collected a loose ball from the left wing and cut inside on his right and beat Derrick Emukule on his near post.

That man made sure the match goes to the half time break done and dusted by powering in the 4th in the 39th minute.

The visitors returned for the second half with mainly an object of damage limitation and that objective was achieved as Arua Hill failed to improve on tally.

5 minutes past the hour mark, Titus Sematimba pulled one back for them with a jumping header.

On loan striker Sam Senyonjo restored some decency to the scoreline with a typical preacher’s goal in the 86th minute.

His goal came a little to late for a comeback to be staged and Wakiso Giants succumbed to their 3rd loss in 5 matches

They remain 7th on the log with 27 points and Arua Hill move up to 5th on 3w points. The best accumulated by the new sides this term.

Wakiso will host Mbarara city on 9th March, whereas Arua Hill will visit UPDF at Bombo on the same day
