- Elgon Group:

- MYDA 4-0 Bukedea Town Council
Katwe United Football Club secured their second victory in the 2019-20 FUFA Big League with a comprehensive 4-1 home win against Mbale based Kataka at Lugogo on Thursday, February 20.
Left-footed gem Allan Tebusweke netted a brace with new signings Solomon Wafula and veteran defender Habibu Kavumba each scoring a goal for Allan Kabonge’s coached side.
Dread-locked Cameroonian Francis Odongo scored the consolation for the visitors.
Katwe United’s first goal was a decent half-volleyed effort inside the goal area from January signing Wafula in the 20th minute following a heavy downpour.
Wafula’s half volley followed a rebounded shot from Tebusweke off the crossbar as the first half ended 1-0.
Katwe United returned a much-energized entity with fluid passing and movement.
The second goal arrived at the start of the second half, a well-taken penalty by veteran defender Kavuma, another midseason signing.
