Kyetume Football Club became the second club to progress to the 2020 Uganda Cup quarterfinals.

This followed a 5-4 win in a tense post-match penalty shootout against Maroons at the Mighty Arena on Friday, 13th March 2020.

Normal time of the game had ended one goal apiece.

Gangly striker Baker Buyala scored the day’s opening goal on the opening half-hour as Kyetume took a slim 1-0 lead by the mandatory half time break.

Veteran striker Robert Ssentongo missed doubling the goal tally for the hosts when his shot razed off the goal post.

Maroons gallantly fought back to make amends, finding the equalizer in the 66th minute through Abraham Tusubira to push the game into the tense shoot out.

Kyetume scored all their respective kicks finding the net through Denis Lubowa, Cephas Kambugu, Deo Isega, substitute Ibrahim Ceaser Kazindula and skipper Vincent Kayizzi Walugembe.

Tusubira turned villain for Maroons in the tense shoot out, hitting his attempt on the lower right post.

Maroons’ four goals in the penalty shoot-out came from Ceaser Olega, second-half substitute Bronson Nsubuga, Asaba and captain Sylvester Okello.

Kyetume joins KCCA who ejected FUFA Big league side Dove 1-0 at the Katushabe playground in Masindi on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Uganda Cup round of 16 matches continues on Saturday, 14th March 2020 with two games.
