Uganda Cup (Round of 64):
BUL 2-1 Kataka
Uganda Premier League club BUL FC out-witted FUFA Big League entity Kataka 2-1 during a round of 64 Uganda Cup duel played at the FUFA Technical Center on Sunday evening.
Former Bright Stars player Farouk Banga gave Peter Onen’s side the command with a 13th minute strike past goalkeeper Edward Kasibante for the half time lead.
Raymond Onyai found the equaliser for the second tier club, coached by Geofrey ‘Toldo’ Awach, seven minutes into the second stanza of the game played on astro surface.
Six minutes later, Oromochan Villa, a forward striker at Paidha Black Angels, URA and Kenyan side Kakamega Home Boyz restored parity for the Bidco Uganda Limited sponsored club.
BUL held onto the scoreline to win the day and qualify for the next stage (round of 32) where they join Sports Club Villa, Water and Mbarara City, three other clubs that had earlier made the grade on Friday.
In the other matches played on Sunday, Police registered a confidence building 5-0 home win over Boma at Lugogo, Bright Stars outshone Kazo Excel 4-0, Onduparaka smiled to a 2-0 away win over Busia Young and Kyetume out-muscled UPDF 3-1 at their Nakisunga fortress.
Meanwhile, URA and Express stand to benefit from the generosity of the FUFA Competitions department since their respective matches were not honoured for different reasons.
Jinja Municipal Council Hippos failed to show up at Mandela National Stadium to face URA and Paidha Black Angels, Express’ opponents at the Green Light Stadium showed up late in Arua.
The round of 64 Uganda Cup matches continue on Monday, 24th December 2018.
The winner of the Uganda Cup qualifies to represent the country in the CAF Confederation Cup.
KCCA is the current cup holder.
