Wakiso Giants 2-2 Kyetume  

For the fifth time in six meetings, the tie between Wakiso Giants and Kyetume ended in a draw.

Kyetume thought they could pick their first win (in normal time) against the Purple Sharks when they went two goals up inside five minutes but failed to hold on.

Baker Buyala scored from an easy tap in after Samson Kiirya, playing his first competitive game in 932 days spilled Bruhan Matovu’s ball into his path.

Livingstone Mbabazi’s men doubled the lead in the 15th minute when Saaka Sharif scored another easy goal after getting at the end of a low cross the left.

But the hosts didn’t panic as they continued to dominate proceedings and deservedly got back into the game when Ibrahim Kasule halved the deficit in the 31st minute after good work by Simon Namwanja on the left.

Yasin Mugume then drew the two sides level with a tap in at the far end with Amos Muwonge bagging the assist as the Purple Sharks piled pressure.

Both coaches made changes into the second half but it was Wakiso Giants that dominated but fluffed a number of chances to win the game.

Mugume, substitute Gadafi Wahab and Muwonge all came close for the hosts who also had a penalty shout out turned down when Mugume went down under a challenge from Mujjuzi.

At the opposite end, Buyala with only the keeper to beat shot over the bar to end the game square.

Both teams remain winless this season after drawing all their two games so far.
