Joseph Ssemujju netted a hattrick in BUL’s 3-1 victory against nemesis Busoga United at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.

The first of Ssemujju’s goals came on the stroke of half time as BUL took the lead by the mandatory break through a well-struck penalty kick.

Ssemujju, a former player at Express and Vipers, then doubled the lead in the 64th minute.

He made it three with 21 minutes to climax the match as BUL secured safety for maximum points.

Midfielder Jerome Kirya  pulled a late goal that was surely a consolation.

Busoga United had captain George Kasonko cautioned as BUL’s booked players were holding midfielder Godfrey Akol and Douglas Bithum.

This was the first win for BUL having earned a point in their opener that ended 2 all against visiting Sports Club Villa at the Kyabazinga Stadium, Bugembe – Jinja on matchday one.

Like in the game against SC Villa, Ssemujju was again deservedly named the man of the match, taking home Shs 100,000 cash reward.

BUL now has 4 points from two games and will own the bragging rights in Jinja following the sweet derby victory.

Meanwhile, KCCA humiliated Onduparaka 8-0 at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

Brian Aheebwa scored four times and Sam Ssenyonjo got a brace with Herbert Achai adding the other.

Police overcame newcomers Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA) 3-1 at the King George Stadium, Tororo while Wakiso Giants and Kyetume shared the spoils in the four-goal affair at the Wakisha Resource Centre, Wakiso.

The contest between Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and visiting Soltilo Bright Stars ended goalless at the Arena of Visions in Luweero.
