Platinum Credit Heathens scrum-half Aaron Ofoyrwoth scored a late drop kick as his side beat perennial rivals Kobs 15-17 during matchday three of the Nile Special Rugby Premier League at Legends Grounds in Kampala.
It was the last kick of the game and Ofoyrwoth who is one of the best kickers in the domestic top flight league ensured that he put the ball up in between the sticks to grab the lead from Kobs’ grasp and break the hearts of the home crowd.
He was named man of the match and walked him UGX 100,000 and a plaque, courtesy of Nile Special.
It was a very close affair at Legends as Kobs posted a slim 12-06 lead at half time. After Heathens gaining lead later in the second half, the Kyadondo based side were penalized and Joseph Aredo scored a penalty to earn the home side a 15-14 lead. Ofoyrwoth later had the final say though to earn his side a win in the fixture dubbed “The Lions Cup.”
