Masaza Cup 2021: Buwekula outclass Buluuli to earn Semifinals berth

Ssaza side, Buwekula claimed the first semifinals spot in the ongoing Buganda Masaza Cup after registering a 3-0 victory against Buluuli at Njeru on Monday.

Pacy forward Ismail Tamubula was on the scoreboard twice before Shafic Kakande made it three in the first stanza of the encounter.

From the onset, Buwekula looked the better side than Buluuli and took charge of the game straight away.

Ismail Tamubula swiftly passed Buluuli defender Islam Mustafa before he placed the ball in between goalkeeper Abdul Salim Ssekamwa’s legs to place Buwekula in the lead after three minutes.

Five minutes later, Tamubula nearly sealed a brace after connecting a volley to Emmanuel Yiga’s cross from the left but the effort missed the target by a whisker.

In the 20th minute, Buwekula introduced Luck Johnson Kasagga for right full-back Alex Kizito who got injured.

Four minutes later, Buwekula ignited a team play before substitute, Kasagga laid flawless cross that was nodded into the back of the net by skipper Shafic Kakande.

Moments later, Brian Masembe paved way for Steven Serebe for Buluuli’s first change.

Six minutes past half an hour mark, Isaac Musiima passed through several bodies before he sighted Tamubula and the forward placed the ball at the inside of the left post.

With three minutes to the break, Derrick Kato beat his marker before he passed the ball to Jacob Kamwesiga but the effort was nicely collected by Buwekula’s custodian Isaac Kwizera Onyango.

After recess, Buwekula made a double change bringing on Fahad Jumbe and Stuart Otunu for Ivan Ssemujju and Marvin Witaikire.

While for Buluuli, Cesar Orwotho replaced Swaib Kazibwe for Buluuli who were in search of a consolation goal.

In the second stanza, Peter Ssibo’s charges looked a better side but substitute Orwotho and Kakande missed clear chances with the goal at their mercy.

In the second half, Buwekula looked a shadow of what they were in the first half.

Frank Mulindwa’s charges struggled to command possession and had limited action in the final third of the opponent.

How they lined up:

Buluuli XI: Abdul Salim Ssekamwa (Gk), Derrick Kato, Swaib Kazibwe, Brian Masembe, Abdul Malik, Ibrahim Farid Ssekyanzi, Islam Mustafa, Jacob Kamwesiga, Derrick Kaija, Lawrence Kakande, Johnson Ssenyonga
