Buluuli players celebrate a goal at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru

Masaza Cup 2021 (Masengere Group):

  • Buluuli 5-2 Kabula

Saturday Result:

  • Gomba 0-2 Kyadondo

Buluuli humiliated Kabula 5-2 during a Masengere group duel of the 2021 Masaza Cup at the FUFA Technical Center on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

A brace apiece from John Paul Ndembe and Ibrahim Farid Ssekyanzi as well as John Ssenyonga’s goal inspired Buluuli to this much desired victory.

Martin Sseguya netted a late brace for Kabula to give the score-line a respectable second look.

Winners of the championship in 2011, Buluuli got to a brilliant start with the opening goal from Congolese national Ndembe after five minutes.

Ndembe scored the second quickly, three minutes later.

Ssekyanzi made it three on 11 minutes as they further stamped authority into the game and the first half ended 3-0.

Eight minutes into the second half, Johnson Ssenyonga scored Buluuli’s fourth goal and Ssekyanzi completed his brace three minutes past the hour mark for the fifth goal.

Sseguya pulled a goal back with nine minutes to end the game before a late-late penalty past goalkeeper Salim Abudallah Ssekamwa.

Buluuli is now top of the standings of the Masengere group with three points, same as Kyadondo (Buluuli had a better goal difference).
