Teenage striker Sadat Anaku also got onto the score sheet with the fourth goal for Mike Mutebi’s charges. Amity Shamede struck twice while Christopher Chola added the other goal for Green Eagles FC.

Okello who has been brilliant throughout the tournament gave KCCA FC an early lead when he drove through the middle before firing home in the second minute.

Shamede drew the game level in the 37th minute as the opening stanza ended one all.

He scored his second of the day seven minutes into the second half before Okello once again registered his name on the score sheet.
