*Busujju 1-2 Busiro
Amuza Kalibwami inspired Busujju to a 2-1 victory against ten-man Busujju in the ongoing Masaza Cup.
Kalibwami scored the first goal for busiro in 52 minutes thanks to an assist from Gerard Ogwet to cancel Shafic Kakande’s first half strike.
Kalibwami now takes his tally to three goals from two games after scoring a brace in their group opener against Buvuma.
Arafat Usama scored the winner when he bundled home from close range after receiving from Edward Mubiru to seal a comeback.
The victory takes Busiro, last year’s beaten finalists, to six points with nine goals scored from two games.
Busujju had taken an early lead when Shafic Kakande sent goalkeeper Adadi Mutumba the wrong way from the penalty spot.
Busujju will have to fight for three points in their second match which will be played on Friday.
Busujju, playing their first game at the turf and in the group, looked the better team in the first half and could have led by a better scoreline.
They took lead in the 35th minute thanks to a well taken Kakande after earlier attempts had proved in vain.
They were top of the game thanks to team work that saw the side create many chances but couldn’t add to their tally.
Kasozi Ronald had a brilliant chance to put put busujju in the lead early in the game but his effort went wide when he was presented with a one-on-one with Busiro goalkeeper.
Brian Imirambe thought that he had registered his name on score-sheet but had his goal cancelled for offside.
Busujju, looked deflated in the second half as an experienced Busiro side started to grow in the game.
To rub more salt in the wound, Busiro were later reduced to ten men after a red card was shown to Michael Ssimbwa to compound the team’s misery.
