Ibrahim Musa narrowed the gap, tapping in Gaddafi Wahab’s free-kick just before halftime.

Thirteen minutes into the second half, Senkatuka completed his hat-trick with a one-touch finish, orchestrated by Sam Ssenyonjo.

However, Ssenyonjo missed an open goal opportunity from Kazanyiro’s through ball, sending his effort inches wide at the far post.
