Rwothomio later extended the hosts’ win to three in the 61st minute. However before the  full time, Fahad Kizito scored a consolation for the Cops in the 87th minute.

URA FC head coach Sam Ssimbwa said he is happy for the win but unfortunately his closest competitors Vipers and Express also won their games. However Ssimbwa said this will not bother his team claiming that they will only focus on their own games as they fight for the trophy.
