Matchday three of the 2018 FUFA Drum tournament witnessed the defending champions Buganda Province lose 1-0 to visiting Ankole at the Mityana Ssaza ground.

Seiri Aligumaho’s scored the lone strike in the 70th minute strike.

The defeat not only halted Buganda’s two-match winning run but also meant they missed out on the 100,000 per goal stake from the self-styled businessman – cum- philanthropist Abraham Luzzi.

I want to motivate Buganda Province players by staking an extra Shs 100,000 per goal scored. I also want to encourage our team to score as many goals as possible.
