Masaza Cup 2021: Busiro,Kyaggwe book quarter-final slots

Ssaza sides Busiro and Kyaggwe registered wins in the final games of the Bulange group to confirm spots in the last eight of the ongoing Buganda Masaza Cup.

In the first game that kicked off at midday, Kyaggwe earned a 4-2 victory against wasteful Bugerere at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru on Monday.

Geral Ogweti needed only 28 minutes into the game to place Kyaggwe in the lead and this took his tournament tally to two goals in three games for the forward.

Moments into the second half, Jackson Ssemugabi scored through a beautiful free-kick that extended Kyaggwe’s lead in a game they controlled from word go.

Five minutes past an hour mark, Denis Kalanzi headed home a 50-50 ball from close range after Bugerere’s defense failed to clear away the ball.

In the 82nd minute, David Toko made it four for Kyaggwe to own the bragging rights in the game that was played under the scorching sunshine.

As many thought the entertainment in the game was done, Ezra Magambe and Hudson Mbalire scored two consolation goals for Bugerere but it was late to complete a comeback.

In the second game, last year’s third-placed side, Busiro registered a 3-1 well-deserved victory against Buvuma at Njeru in the evening.

Busiro’s experienced forward Ibrahim Kasenge tapped home from the penalty area to give Simano Ddungu’s charges the lead.

In the second half, Ivan Agamile scored the second for Busiro before Hakim Mutebi made it three past Peter Kato who stood in-between the sticks for Buvuma.

Brian Henry Katamba who missed a penalty for Buvuma in the second half later scored at an hour mark but his goal was more of a drop in an ocean since it had less impact on the game.

Busiro and Kyaggwe tied at seven points (two wins and a draw) and three goals advantages and it only remains a point of time to see who will be crowned log leader.
