The tax collectors’ funded club humbled Buganda regional side Lugazi Municipal 4-0 in a one sided Uganda Cup round of 64 duel on Friday.

Fast paced winger Michael Birungi, skipper Shafik Kagimu, midfielder Said Kyeyune and the on colour striker Cromwell Abang Rwothomio found the goals for the visitors.

Birungi opened the scoring off Kagimu’s delivery in the 21st minute.

Rwothomio and Kagimu found the second and third goals at the stroke of half time for a comfortable 3-0 lead heading to the mandatory mid-way recess.

Kyeyune capped the icing on the already baked cake, 12 minutes from full time off another Kagimu assist.

Rwothomio has now scored four goals in the previous four matches, all of which have been victories for Sam Ssimbwa’s side since the kick off for the second round.

The “one team, one dream” side now progresses to the round of 32 and will eagerly await for the draw in the coming days.
