Bugisu became the eighth team to reach the 2018 FUFA Drum quarter finals after a win over Teso in the re-arranged fixture.

The initial game was abandoned after 75 minutes last week due to crowd trouble and it was resolved that it would be re-played at a neutral stadium this past Sunday.

Bugisu who went into the game needing to avoid defeat so as to progress to the next round ended up walking away with all three points despite falling behind in the first half.

Teso who were missing both Cranes captain Denis Onyango and striker Emmanuel Okwi took the lead at the half hour mark thanks to a Bright Star’s Opejo Kokas’s goal.

Five minutes inside the second half Bugisu Captain Nicholas Wadada scored a stunning goal to equalize for the visitors before Muwada Mawejje scored the winner in the 77th Minute to give Busigsu the victory.
