Brian Aheebwa was on target as KCCA FC edged Bright Stars in the league opener at Kavumba Recreational ground.
Aheebwa received from Keziron Kizito, before volleying home past Benson Wagina in the 21st minute.
The former Mbarara Striker who scored eight goals last season, later beat his man to send a low cut back for Sam Ssenyonjo to tap home at close range six minutes later.
KCCA FC put the foot off the pedal in the second stanza and were made to work for the result when Joseph Akandwanaho brought one back woth a header off Simon Ssemayange for the hosts in the 83rd minute.
Bright Stars will rue a late missed chance from Joseph Janjali who had a chance to level matters with Charles Lukwago beaten, but fumbled with his opportunity.
