FUFA Big League Promotional Playoffs:
- 2nd Semifinal: Kiboga Young 3-1 Ndejje University
- 1st Semifinal: Kataka 0 (6) – 0 (7) Kitara
Kiboga Young advanced to the final of the FUFA Big League promotional playoff and will face Kitara on Wednesday, 21st October 2020.
The development follows the completion of the two semi-finals played at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru under closed Doors.
Sulaiman Tumusiime gave Ndejje University the lead on 35 minutes as they took the half time.
Tumusiime struck a well-taken kick from the penalty mark after Kiboga Young left-back Godwin Kitagenda had tripled down midfielder Nicholas Luzige in the forbidden area.
In the second half, Kiboga Young returned a better and much more organized side.
Dreadlocked captain Jamaldine Buchochera tapped home at the backend off Yahaya Luuti’s assist, seven minutes into the final stanza.
Two goals in quick succession from Brian Olega and Sula Wambede sealed the victory for Richard Makumbi’s coached side.
Kiboga Young’s head coach Makumbi hailed the fighting spirit of his side, coming from a goal down to win the match.
“We played our hearts out like soldiers. I thank the players. We shall fight until when promoted,” Makumbi stated.
The final 10 minutes of the game were characterized by rains.
Kiboga Young will now face Kitara who ejected Kataka 7-6 in post-match penalties after a goal-less 90 minutes.
