Defending Champions Proline needed shootouts to eliminate Admin FC’s late surge and reach the Uganda Cup round of 16.
Alele Walter scored a late header to cancel out Diego Hamis Kizza’s opener to send the game into penalty shootouts.
Alele, who scored against Police to reach this stage, failed at the spot after Hassan Matovu stretched to pull off a good save.
Admin FC had earlier attempts on goal that saw Alele shot denied by goalkeeper Matovu while Sam Kansiime fired an inch wide.
Marko Bassey also had two big chances on goal but failed to find the back of the net on both occasions.
Aaron Okoth was denied by Matovu.
Matovu could later keep out Raymond Otieno’s header, off Kansiime delivery, in the 80th minute.
With four minutes added, Alele headed home the equaliser to send the travelling fans into frenzy.
