Vipers Sports Club is thus far the biggest casualty of the 46th Uganda Cup.
A tense and dramatic post-match penalty shoot out that ended 8-7 in favour of Buganda regional side Kajjansi United eliminated the 2016 Uganda Cup winners during a Round of 64 duel.
Kajjansi United took a first-half lead through Michael Male.
In typical fighting spirit, Vipers found the equalizer through Fahad Bayo to force a penalty shoot-out that Kajjansi United won 8-7.
Marvin Nyanzi, Mike Lutaaya,Rashid Ssemwogerere, Edgar Luzige, Joseph Shisha, Ashraf Mbaziira, Isaac Balyejusa and Ronald Kizito all converted their respective kicks from the penalty spot with success past goalkeeper Derrick Ochan.
Consequently, Fahad Bayo, Geoffrey Wasswa, Farouk Musisi, Rahmat Ssenfuka, Paul Mucurezi, Abraham Ndugwa and Jacob Okao were on target for the venoms.
Kajjansi United goalkeeper Michael Kagiri saved substitute Umar Kyebatala’s penalty kick.
Kajjansi United thus qualify to the round of 32 at the expense of the Venoms.
On an evening of shocks, Bugamba knocked out Onduparaka 1-0 in Rwampara during a well-attended game.
Busia Young eliminated Busoga United 2-1 at the Busia Integrated Primary School Playground.
The Uganda Cup competition is played on a knock out basis and it has been held since 1971.
Proline is the current cup holder.
There were elements of indiscipline from visibly angry Vipers’s fans who hurled all sorts of insults towards their players and members of technical team.
The situation worsened with acts of violence towards the players, coaches and surprisingly members of the fourth estate who included budding CBS radio female sports journalist, Peace Diane Bagala of the Kaliisoliso sports programme fame every morning.
Meanwhile, the Uganda Cup round of 64 matches will continue on Thursday, 23rd January 2020.
