FUFA Drum 2018
Kamapala 1-1 Buganda
Mutessa II War Memorial Stadium, Wankulukuku
Buganda progressed to the FUFA Drum semi finals after a one all draw with Kampala at Wankulukuku on Sunday.
It took only 14 minutes for Buganda to open up the scoring through Onduparaka FC striker Vianne Ssekajugo whose first short on target was accurate enough to beat Express FC and Kampala goalkeeper Godwin Bbule.
Kampala and SC Villa’s Martin Kizza had a decent effort on 20th minutes following excellent exchange of passes with Allan Kyambadde but his effort was saved by Onduparaka FC and Buganda goalkeeper Nicholas Ssebwato.
Bright Stars FC and Kampala striker Nelson Senkatuka also came close to getting the leveler in the 30th minute but his decent strike flew inches off the mark from.
Despite having a very big task to come back from a 0-2 aggregate score, Kampala returned from the half time break with strong determination that increased the tempo of the game and in the due cause, substitute Willy Kavuma scored an equaliser for the home side with 19 minutes of the game to play.
The match ended 1-1 and Buganda progressed to the last four of The FUFA Drum with an aggregate of 1-2.
Their player Vianne Ssekajugo was named Man of the Match and received his 100,000 Shs prize money and the accolade.
On Saturday, Bukedi, Busoga and West Nile all negotiated through their respective ties to make it into the last four.
Bukedi got past a spirited Acholi side 6-5 on penalties after an aggregate score of 1-1 after the two legs.
Both side won their home ties 1-0 and Acholi won theirs on Saturday at the Peace Stadium in Gulu thanks to Norman Ojik’s 44th minute strike.
For Busoga, they defeated Ankole 3-0 at the Bugembe stadium to win the tie with the same score line after both sides sharing the spoils 0-0 in the first leg.
Shabena Dan scored first in the 31st minute, before Richard Wandyaka extended the lead three minutes later and Richard Wandyaka sealed the victory with a penalty kick with five minutes to play.
At the Green Light Stadium, Onduparaka’s Ezira Bida headed West Nile into the last four with the only goal of the game after 20 minutes.
Having won 1-0 in the first leg, Saturday’s result meant that West Nile had won the tie 2-0 leaving Bugisu to ponder what may have been.
The draw for the semi finals will be conducted later this week.
