Uganda Cup: Proline Edge Bright Stars In Penalties To Clinch Title

Saturday, May 24
*Proline FC 1(5)-(4)1 Bright Stars

Proline FC are the 2019 Stanbic Uganda Cup after beating ten man Bright Stars FC in the finals held at Masaka Recreation ground.

Shafic Bisaso’s charges, at the back of winning the FUFA Big League, added another silverware but the side needed penalty shootouts after a one all draw in normal time before clinching their maiden Uganda Cup crown.

Nelson Ssenkatuka put Bright Stars in the lead with a beautiful freekick at restart but Mustafa Mujuzi leveled matters late in the game with a penalty after Enock Walusimbi handled the ball in the area.

Ssenkatuka could later turn into villain after his penultimate kick in the shootouts was kept out by Hassan Matovu to hand Proline FC the trophy.

Bright Stars who beat Kazo Excel, Bumate, URA FC, Nebbi Central and Express FC, will take home Sh20M.

Champions Proline FC who eliminated SC Vipers before reaching the semis, take Sh40M courtesy of Stanbic Bank as prize money.
