After a shoody opening quarter of the game, Buddu eventually came to life when Ssengendo parried home a fluffed ball from goalkeeper Benon Bukenya after an initial shot by Bunyaga on 16 minutes.

Busujju got the equalizer in the 27th minute from Kaweesi followed a foul on Arafat Mawanda by Edward Namasa.

Bunyaga made it two in the 37th minute with a powerful header before Ssengendo’s free-kick was pushed to the woodwork on the stroke of half time.

Ssengendo completed his brace with a sublime finish on the hour mark as Buddu further stamped authority onto the game.

This was Buddu’s second win in Muganzirwaza group after a 5-1 comprehensive win over Butambala in the opener.
