Round of 16: Baza Holdings 1-6 Police, Kyambogo 0 (4) – 0 (2) Sadolin Paints, SC Villa 4-0 Proline

Round of 32: URA 1-2 KCC

Uganda Premier league lead scorer, Umar Kasumba scored a first half hat-trick in Police Football Club’s 1-6 demolition of Baza Holdings in a Uganda cup round of 16 engagement played at Kawanda play ground on Tuesday.

Kasumba lit the evening with a goal poacher’s pounce, out jumping the entire Baza Holdings backline to nod the opener off Sadat Kyambadde’s curling free kick with just a quarter an hour of action gone.

He then had two simple finishes after great inter-play with partner in crime, Peter ‘Crounch’ Ssenyonjo in the 33rd and 44th minutes as the visitors stretched their lead by half time.

Second half substitute, Umar Bulenga coming on for the three goal hero, Kasumba also scored three quick goals to help the Cops book a berth in the last 8.

Abubaker Bakari scored Baza Holdings only goal on the day.

Other games witnessed Sadolin Paints ejected out of the cup following a heart breaking 4-2 penalty loss that was determined after a goal-less duel of normal time played at the UPK ground in Kyambogo University confines.

Normal time had ended goal-less and post match penalties had to determine who progresses at the next stage.

Sadolin’s central defender Desmond Kyobe and Douf Kisige converted their spot kicks before Kyambogo’s custodian Joseph Etyang forced Joseph Ssemwogerere to hit the woodwork before saving Yunus Kasozi’s kick.

Wilber Sanya, Diata Apuli, Goal keeper, Joseph Etyang and Charles Ssemanda scored for Kyambogo F.C.

Sports Club Villa overcame FUFA Big league side, Proline Academy 4-0 at Nakivubo Stadium to book a berth among the last 8.

Ronald Muganga gave the Jogoos the lead before the other strikes came off Erias Sekisambu, Moses Gale and rarely from defender, Musa Docca.

In the round of 32 fixture played, Kampala City Council (KCC) outwit the defending champions, Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) 1-2 away at the Mehta Stadium in Lugazi.
