Kalibwami Sees Red as Busiro, Kyaggwe Share Spoils

• Busiro 1-1 Kyaggwe

Kyaggwe held Busiro to a 1-1 draw during the 2020/21 Masaza Cup Bulange group game played on Sunday afternoon at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.

Kyaggwe took the lead through Obele Ronald who met a swift pass from Isaac Jangeyambe to poke home past goalkeeper Kirabira Juma after 31 minutes.

Eleven minutes later, referee Stephen Kimayo sent off Busiro’s forward Amuza Kalibwami following an elbow towards his marksman Moses Buga as Kyaggwe gained numerical advantage.

In the second stanza, Busiro drew matters level when Kuteesa Malida met a Gerrard Ogweti low drive inside the area to tap home past Kyaggwe’s custodian Florence Watmon.

Despite playing over 50 minutes with a man down, resilient Busiro held nerves to pick a point taking their tally to seven consolidating the top spot after three games.

“We battled played tooth and nail for a point despite being a man down, the players did not lose focus. We remained on course to play for a point and I am happy because we are close to qualifying to the quarter-finals,” said Busiro Ssaza team Head Coach Lukungu Ronald.

Busiro after defeating Buvuma (7-0), Busujju (2-1) and getting a draw with Kyaggwe, will play their final game against Buwekula on Tuesday afternoon (3pm).

Elsewhere, Kyaggwe completed all it’s four group stage matches counting five points in the second position. Their fate of progressing to the next stage will be determined by Busujju and Buvuma who will face off on Tuesday.

“It has been a battle well fought. We did everything possible but conceded in the closing stages. We have to wait for results in the other matches to determine our fate,” Kyaggwe Ssaza tactician Hussein Mbalangu noted.

Busujju has four points in the third position tied on with fourth placed Buwekula. Buvuma faced elimination with just a point at the bottom.
