On the other end, the first effort from URA fell to Viane Ssekajugo when goalkeeper Sanon Mulabi fumbled with the ball but defender Andy Kyambadde did well to save the ball off the line.

The breakthrough came in the 38th minute when Dada rose highest to node Ssekajugo’s well-delivered cross.

At the stroke of halftime, URA were awarded a penalty after a foul on Ssekajugo in the box.

Kabon was able to double the advantage, converting from the spot.

Joseph Ssemujju nearly stretched the lead for the visitors in the 77th minute but his effort ricocheted off the crossbar.
