On their first match at the Greenlight Stadium in Arua this season, Onduparaka FC played out a two-all draw with Maroons FC in the Uganda Premier League on Sunday.

The Caterpillars had been barred from hosting their matches at their famous grounds due to indiscipline-related sanctions, playing their opening five home games at the Bombo Military Barracks Grounds.

Their return to Arua must have been the kind of relief and spark to kickstart their tattered season, but could only settle for a draw against the Prison Warders.

The hosts made a brilliant start, with Nathan Oloro scoring from a seven minute penalty before Isaac Kajubi equalized nine minutes later.

Maroons added a second in the five minutes after the hour-mark through Fred Amaku. That was before Rashid Okocha netted the levelled at the death.

Despite the draw, Onduparaka still occupy rock-bottom with just three points in 12 games and will visit Blacks Power FC in their next encounter on the 16th of December.

Meanwhile, on the same day Maroons who are ninth with 14 points, will host Express FC at the Luzira Playgrounds.
