Uganda Cup: BUL FC edge Black Power FC

BUL FC have progressed to the Uganda Cup Round of 16 after beating Black Power FC 3-1 in the second leg tie on Thursday in Jinja.

Joseph Ssemujju, Peter Oketch and Robert Mukonghotya scored for BUL to ensure they progressed courtesy of a 5-1 aggregate score against Black Power.

Ssemujju would have opened the scoring in the 15th minute but he missed the target from close range. Five minutes later he made amends and broke the deadlock in favour of the hosts.

The forward had a chance to make it 2-0 but his effort hit the side netting in the 23rd minute as BUL looked settled and more determinant than a side they defeated 2-0 in the first leg at Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe two days ago.

In the 25th minute, Oketch scored the second for BUL before Deogratius Ojok failed to stretch the lead further at the half-hour mark.

At half time, the Jinja club was leading by an aggregate of 4-0.

Dennis Mugulusi and Dennis Oola were introduced by BUL in the 46th minute for Peter Onzima and Oketch respectively.

Douglas Bithum was injured in the 65th minute and Mukonghotya replaced him while Ssemujju was withdrawn for Anwar Ntege.

Mukonghotya scored the third goal as BUL took a commanding lead in the 86th minute after Black Power had denied them a clean sheet when they scored in the 82nd minute from a penalty by Michael Siwa.
