Pre-tournament favorites Kyaggwe and Busiro shared the spoils in a non-scoring stalemate during a Bulange group duel in the on-going Masaza Cup 2021 on Friday, December 10, 2021.

Busiro missed the opportunity to take the lead when Ibrahim Kasenge’s first half strike was disallowed by referee Steven Kimayo for an off-side call.

After the goal-less draw, Busiro remains top of Bulange group with four points (a goal difference), off second placed Kyaggwe (same number of points).

Reactions:

We needed maximum points but unfortunately we managed a single point. Before the game, we knew that we would get a tough challenge from Busiro because they are contenders to the crown. We shall however use the two day’s rest to plan for Monday’s do or die game so that we make it to the quarterfinals

We had a specific game plan and strategy that we gave to the team. It was a physical well contested battle and unfortunate that we could not take the whole three points. We now turn our focus to Monday’s game against Buvuma and hopefully, our injured players and the one red carded will be back.
