FUFA Big League
Match Day One
Amuka Bright Stars FC 2-2 Wakiso Giants FC
Lira P.7 Grounds
Wakiso Giants FC started the 2018/19 FUFA Big League with a point away against Amuka Bright Stars FC in Lira District.
The closely contested game played at Lira P.7 grounds ended in a two all draw with either side taking the lead at one point.
Kick off the match delayed than earlier scheduled with Police needing to deploy first and push back the fans who were almost close to the field lines with no perimeter fence around.
When it eventually got underway, it was the home side who took an early lead in the fourth minute through James Baker Ochaya.
The lead was however short lived with Wakiso Giants levelling matters through former SC Villa winger Abdulkarim Kasule four minutes later.
In the second stanza, Wakiso Giants coach Ibrahim Kirya made changes and one of the players that came on was Clinton Kamugisha.
The former Mbarara City FC player who replaced skipper Feni Ali in the 65th minute needed only seven minutes on pitch to score and give the visitors the lead.
His ferocious strike just after crossing the half way line caught goalkeeper Ssebulime off guard and went into the back of the net.
Amuka showed resilience and equalized in the 78th minute from a well taken free kick by Bronson Nsubuga and the game eventually ended in a two all draw.
