Ghislain Kagwa Otukei, Noel Okiror, Sam Mai and second half substitute Leonard Olnga scored for Sansiro in the tense post-match shoot out.

Team Church’s two goals in the shoot-out were scored by skipper Julius Ocen and Salim Akabwai.

James Oba missed for Sansiro while Emmanuel Orisa and substitute Alfred Ekwangu were foiled by goalkeeper Jamada Ojuge.

Gaddafi head coach Michael Ssebagala is optimistic that he will make the FUFA Big League grade.

“We need to work hard to fulfil the dream of qualifying for the FUFA Big League. With teamwork, we shall make it” Ssebagala noted.

His counterpart, Charles Namakoola believes that his players have at least tested the Njeru turf conditions.

“Many of my players had not played on the astro turf surface. We have trained there and held a match. I expect the best” Namakoola stated.

Kick off for the two clubs is 12 PM.
