Sports Club Villa marched to the 2022 Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 16 after a 4-3 tense post-match penalty victory over arch-rivals Express at the Muteesa II Stadium on Tuesday.

Normal time of this end-to-end duel was goal-less with a couple of half-chances per side.

Travis Mutyaba lit up the Blue Jogoo gallery with fancy successful dribbles but the goal-scoring opportunities from Isaac Ogwang and Muhindo were dearly missed.

Express’ Eric Kenzo was denied by the impressive goalkeeper Martin Ssenkooto from a free-kick as Charles Musiige and substitute George Ssenkaaba also got close.

Saddam Masereka equalized 1-1. Express’ second penalty was converted by George Senkaaba, a first-half substitute for Abel Eturude.

Nicholas Kabonge made it 2-all with a well-taken penalty.

Derrick Kiggundu scored Express’ third penalty and so did Amir Kakomo for the Jogoos.

Faizal Ssekyanzi curled his penalty wide of the goalposts. Ibrahim Saddam Juma scored to put Sports Club Villa ahead 4-3.

Eric Kenzo Kambale’s weak penalty was saved by SC Villa’s late substitute Joseph Yiga as Express got eliminated on home soil.

Yiga had replaced a largely impressive goalkeeper Martin Senkooto on the stroke of full time.
