Vipers Sports Club booked a slot at the round of 32 in the FUFA Uganda Cup following a 3-1 away to Kasese based Bronken S.C in Kasese on Saturday.

Defender Bashir Asiku tapped home an 8th minute corner following early pressure from the visitors.

Stylish midfielder Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye doubled the lead three minutes to the half hour mark following a clever back heel from Steven Mukwala.

The home side pulled a goal back through Xavier Masereka with three minutes to the half way mark of the game played on a barren and bare ground.

As the second half started, Pius Wangi came on for Milton Karisa as the visitors sought for a killer punch.

Mukwala extended the lead six minutes into the second half.

Brian Nkuubi then replaced second goal hero Tumwesigye on the 55th minute mark.

January 2018 signing, Daniel ‘Muzeyi’ Sserunkuma was introduced in the final 20 minutes, coming on for Erisa Ssekisambu.

Usual team captain Nico Wakiro Wadada was among the unused substitutes for the 2014 Uganda Cup winners.

Hard working midfielder Tadeo Lwanga ably took over the captain’s role.

Vipers thus joined Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) among others at the next stage.

KCCA humbled Western region side, Mbarara F.C 4-0 at the Kakyeeka stadium with Patrick Kaddu on target twice despite missing a penalty.

Allan Okello and Paul Mucureezi were the other scorers for Mike Mutebi’s coached club.
