Following a goalless draw in the opening stanza of the game, the match was lit up by a thunderous strike from Buluuli’s second-half substitute Henry Tenywa past goalkeeper Fred Ntege on the hour mark.

The fierce shot inside the goal area arose after a blocked shot from Abdu Razake Ssemubuusi.

Tenywa had five minutes earlier replaced Johnson Ssenyonga in one of the double changes executed.

John Ssempijja was the other change for Ali Ashraf.
