As the 2017-18 Buganda Regional League officially kicked, two clubs that are favourites for the promotional slot, Kiboga Young and Entebbe lost their respective matches.
Kiboga Young fell to Busiro United 2-0 in Kiboga during a Katonga Group encounter.
John Ssekamatte and Isaac Kizza own goal condemned Felix Kawooya Ssekabunza’s Kiboga Young before the enthusiastic home fans.
Kawooya rued his team’s failure to convert chances created;
We created so many goal scoring opportunities but unfortunately failed to convert any of them.
I do not blame anyone because that is the nature of the game.
We shall collect up ourselves quickly ahead of the next club game away to Lufuka this Sunday.
