*UPDF 2-1 Busia Young

Army side, UPDF FC, beat fellow Big league side Busia Young in the Uganda Cup round of 32 encounter played at Bombo Barracks ground.

Captain Dennis Ssekitoleko scored from close range after a well weighed freekick and Robert Nakyenalire headed in the second for the hosts.

Rajab Kakaire had scored the equaliser from the spot, after Ssekitoleko handled the ball in the area, but the effort proved to be a consolation.
