Amus College School defeated a ten-man Kibuli S.S 1-0 at Huye International Stadium.

Impressive forward Allan Oyirwoth scored the all-important goal, a well drilled penalty into the top right corner of the goal net in the second half.

Oyirwoth’s penalty was the 11th goal for the most on-form player at the championship in six matches.

The penalty was awarded after a deliberate handball by Kibuli S.S left back Juma Ssajjabi when he stopped a goal bound shot as the second half kicked off.

Consequently, Ssajjabi was sent off by the referee for an early shower in the lavish dressing rooms of the stadium rehabilitated for CHAN 2016 tournament.

Amus College played defensively and held onto the lead despite a late scare from Kenneth Kimera with left turn and shoot strike flew over the bar.

The Bukedea based school will now face record FEASSSA football champions St Mary’s Boarding School, Kitende (SMASK).

SMASK overcame Henry’s College Kitovu (SHACK) 2-1 during the semi-finals played at the Kamena stadium under very hot weather conditions.

Forward Fazil Tumwine struck in either half to inspire Daniel Male, Edward Golola and Joackim Mukungu’s coached side.

SMASK is the record winner of the FEASSSA Games football trophy with over 10 titles to their name.
