Lango players celebrate their 3-1 victory over Buganda Province

Amuka Bright Stars forward Dickens Okwi (also the FUFA Big league top scorer with 11 goals) scored a brace before second half substitute Petit Wanok got the winning goal on wet playing field under drizzles.

Buganda had earlier in the first half taken the lead through Allan Kayiwa’s powerfully executed header off captain Brian Majwega’s telling cross from the left.

Okwi was named man of the match, a feat that comes with a plaque and cash reward of Shs. 100,000.

In the other group B match, Acholi overcame Kigezi 1-0 at the Kabale Municipal Stadium.

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) midfielder Hudu Mulikyi scored the lone strike in the match.

Acholi now booked their berth for the quarter finals.

All the other three teams in group B (Buganda, Kigezi and Lango) have four points with a realistic chance of joining the quarter finals alongside Acholi.

Meanwhile, in the other matches, Kampala won 3-1 away to Rwenzori with Bright Stars’ forward and captain scoring a hat-trick.

Kampala thus secured their berth to the quarter finals.
