FUFA Drum 201-quarter finals 1st leg
Buganda 1-0 Kampala
Mukono Bishops playgrounds, Mukono
Buganda put one foot in the semi finals of the 2018 FUFA Drum with a 1-0 victory over Kamapala on Sunday.
In the game played at the Mukono Bishops play ground, it was URA attacking midfielder Shafic Kagimu who scored the all important goal for the host.
Kigimu was on hand to convert from the spot with only eight minutes played after Soan’s Allan Kayiwa was brought down in the penalty area by Kampala goalkeeper Hamzah Muwonge.
Kampala pressed for an equalizer especially in the second half but could not find the back of the net as the game ended 1-0.
Kayiwa was named man of the match, a feat that comes with Shs. 100,000 and a plaque as it has been the case throughout the tournament.
The return leg comes seven days later at the Star Times Stadium, Lugogo on Sunday, 7th July 2017.
Meanwhile, the three other quarter final matches played earlier on Saturday will also have the reverse fixtures played next weekend (7th-8th July).
West Nile will host Bugisu, Busoga entertains Ankole and Acholi faces Bukedi.
The game between Bugisu and West Nile was abandoned deep into extra time and a ruling is expected within the week,.
Bukedi, like Kampala carries a one goal lead, Ankole and Busoga start from scratches since the first leg ended goal-less, but any scoring stalemate will favour Ankole.
The FUFA Drum tourney has all the 16 provinces of Uganda taking part.
The tournament is running along the theme “Celebrating Our Ancestry” and it will climax in October 2018.
All players are permitted to take part regardless of which division and level they are currently playing.
