Boma Young XI prior to their match against Masavu

Airtel-Kitara 1-1 Boma Young

Every time the Airtel-Kitara and Boma Young lock horns, business for obvious reasons in Hoima Municipality comes to a standstill.

The fixture is always the talk of town weeks to the game and after that for the two clubs that host their games at the barren Boma playground, right in the heart of the football mad populous municipality.

The two clubs ply their trade in the country’s second highest tier league division – The FUFA Big League under the Rwenzori Group with a common goal of being promoted to the Uganda Premier League.

Regardless of the respective form at the material time when the fixture arrives, any of the two clubs can win the game and take the full bragging rights.

Unlike in the first leg when Airtel–Kitara won the day 1-0, this time round, the tie ended in a 1-1 draw.

Rogers ‘Roger Milla’ Ahumuza lit up the derby with the day’s opening strike for Airtel-Kitara.

Edson Tumwesige had other ideas altogether with the equalizer mid-way in the second stanza of the game.

The one point earned per side left either fans at least ‘contented’.

Airtel Kitara now has 17 points from 14 matches and remains 6th on the 13-team log whilst Booma Young earns a points from the draw and displaces Kataka from the 12th slot as the Mbale side now lies bottom.

Next Games:

Boma Young will entertain Water F.C on Saturday, 18th February 2017 in Hoima.

On the other hand, Airtel-Kitara’s next engagement will be on Sunday, 26th February 2017, away to Kireka United.

Kireka United hosts their home games at the Mandela National Stadium training ground.

Three clubs will be promoted from the FUFA Big League to the Uganda Premier League.
