Stanbic Uganda Cup: KCCA FC edge Nyamityobora in the first leg

KCCA FC took a 4-2 win from the first leg engagement of the Uganda Cup Round of 32 tie at the Omondi Stadium in Lugogo over Nyamityobora FC.

Bright Anukani, Julius Poloto, Sadat Anaku and Samuel Ssenyonjo scored for KCCA while Clinton Kamugisha’s brace is all that Nyamityobora managed from the domestic tie.

Anukani gave Kasasiro Boys a third-minute lead from outside the box with a delightfully taken strike.

Assistant captain Julius Poloto doubled the lead in the ninth minute with another clinical shot.

Nyamityobora scored in the 23rd minute through Kamugisha to half the deficit before Anukani was denied what could have been his brace by goalkeeper Tonny Musinguzi three minutes later.

Four minutes after the half-hour mark, Anaku scored to stretch KCCA’s lead. A combination between Herbert Achai, Poloto, and Charles Lwanga almost resulted in a fourth goal for the Premier League side but the latter’s header hit the woodwork.

As the second half began, Kamugisha struck again for the Fufa Big League side before KCCA coach Morley Byekwaso made a change in the 65th minute replacing Anaku with Joseph Bukenya.

Ssenyonjo scored the fourth goal for the Byekwaso’s side after he connected to a corner delivered by Bukenya.

Nyamityobora will need to win the second leg 2-0 if they are to stand a chance of qualifying to the next level of the tournament.
