KCCA Football Club outwitted Maroons 2-0 during the first leg of the Stanbic Uganda Cup on the round of 16 stage at the Prisons stadium in Luzira on Sunday, 2nd May 2021.

The two goals for KCCA arrived from rather odd sources off unfamiliar personalities; defenders Herbert Achai and Hassan Jurua.

Achai scored the opener on the opening quarter hour mark.

Jurua doubled the lead in the 67th minute with a well-struck penalty following a handball call inside the goal area.

The two goals were well defended despite the home side’s efforts to pull back at least a strike.

Meanwhile, Wakiso Giants humiliated FUFA Big entity Tooro United 5-1 at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium on the same day.

During the first of the doubleheader at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo,  Proline overcame a resilient Mbale Heroes 2-1.

Captain Noordin Bunjo and defender Savio Kabugo were on target for Proline in the first half.

Dreadlocked Mbale Heroes skipper Jamaldin Buchochera found the consolation for the visitors with a beautiful diving header.

Police hammered Soltilo Bright Stars 4-1 in the second game at Lugogo.

Lanky forward Ben Ocen scored a brace before Yusuf Ssozi and second-half substitute Derrick Kakooza added the other goals for Abdallah Mubiru’s coached side.

The Stanbic Uganda Cup returns on Monday, 3rd May 2021 with a single game as Vipers play host to army side UPDF at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende during the return leg.

Vipers smiled 3-1 in the first leg duel played at the Bombo Military Stadium on Saturday.

The championship this season drew only top tier (Uganda Premier League) and second division (FUFA Big league) clubs because of the raging COVID-19 pandemic.
