A brace by Ivan Bogere and a goal each from Frank Ssebuufu, Rahmat Senfuka and Viane Ssekajugo gave the Wakiso Gaints a 5-1 first leg advantage over 10-man Tooro United in the Uganda Cup round of 16 on Sunday.

Marvin Oshaba scored for the visitors from the penalty spot.

Wakiso Giants broke the deadlock in the 11th minute through Ssebuufu to take an early lead.

Eleven minutes later, Bogere doubled the hosts lead with his first of the day, tapping home from a close range.

Five minutes to the end of first half, Senfuka made it 3-0 to the home side to all but end the game as a contest.

However, Oshaba pulled one back on 51 minutes to hand the visitors a glimmer of hope.

On the hour mark, Ivan Bogere completed his brace and restored the hosts three-goal lead after hard work by Ssekajugo.

Tooro were then reduced to 10 men when George Kigonya was shown a red card.

In the 75th minutes, Ssekajugo made it 5-0 to the Purple Sharks, putting the ball into the back of the net after he was set-up by Owen Kasule.

These two sides meet again on Tuesday 4th May for the second leg at Buhinga Stadium.
