Busiro players Amuza Kalibwami, Gerald Ogweti and Rogers Adriko celebrate one of their two goals against Busujju

Masaza Cup 2020 (Bulange Group): Wednesday, 30th December:

  • Busujju 1-2 Busiro
  • Buvuma 1-2 Kyaggwe

Busiro Ssaza registered their second victory during the on-going 2020 Masaza Cup over Busujju with a 2-1 result at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru on Wednesday.

Amuza Kalibwami and Arafat Usama scored two second half goals to cancel out Shafic Kakande’s opener in the first stanza of the well balanced game.

Kakande had given Busujju the lead on 36 minutes through a well converted kick from the penalty mark.

The penalty was awarded by referee Anna Akoyi after a foul in the goal area on towering midfielder Ivan Irinimbabazi by captain Rogers Adriko.

Seven minutes into the second half, lethal forward Kalibwami tapped home past goalkeeper Henry Kalule from close range off Gerard Ogweti’s donkey work on the left flank.

Five minutes later, Usama nodded home the winner following a teasing cross from the right from roving right back Edward Disty Mubiru.
