Masaza Cup Semi Finals
Buwekula 1 (5) -1 (3) Mawokota
Buwekula Ssaza became the first team to reach this year’s Masaza Cup final after eliminating Mawokota 5-3 on Penalties in a semi final game held on Thursday at Njeru.
The game ended 1-1 in normal time and it meant that penalties could be used to separate the two sides.
During the 90 minutes, Lazaro Bwambale had scored for Mawokota while Musiima Isaac ‘Messi’ scored from the spot to level matters for his side.
The opening exchanges saw a closely contested affair as both teams tried to settle into the game on a sunny afternoon.
However, it was Mawokota who scored first at the stroke of half time through Lazaro to put them ahead before the interval.
At the restart of the second stanza, Buwekula started the better side, dominated play and it wasn’t a surprise when they levelled matters in the 56th minute through Musiima, who scored from the spot to take his tally to six goals so far in this year’s tournament.
There on, both sides barely threatened and it meant that Penalties could be used to determine the winner on the day.
On penalties, Buwekula scored all their five spot kicks eliminating Mawokota, to reach their second final since 2012.
Ivan Ssemuju, Benard Alijuna, Michael Abura, Michael Kimera and Musiima Isaac scored for Buwekula.
For Mawokota, Faizo Matovu missed his penalty while Pius Ssebulime, Mike Kintu and Dan Kazibwe scored their respective spot kicks.
