UFL: Makerere Into Semis Despite Kyambogo Stalemate

Makerere University qualified into the semifinals of the fifth edition of the University Football League on Friday afternoon after playing to a nil all draw with Kyambogo in their return leg quarter final game.

It was a rather dull and mind-numbing game at the Maroons stadium that saw both teams look shy towards the goal with the Ivory Tower team creating more chances in a match watched by Luzira prisons officers and team officials.

However, troche despite the stalemate, Makerere sailed through to the semifinals on a 2-0 aggregate thanks to Joshua Lubwama’s first leg brace.

Speaking to ChimpSport shortly after the game, Makerere university tactician Douglas Bamweyana said they would now train hard for the semifinal game.

“We tried to nullify everything they did but that is for the past. We are now returning to the drawing board to prepare for stubborn teams like they (Kyambogo) were as we play in the semifinals,” Bamweyana told this website.

Makerere now join Uganda Martyrs University who eased to the semifinals after   eliminating Mukono based Uganda Christian University on Thursday in another quarterfinal game of the University Football League.

In other quarterfinal games, Entebbe based Nkumba University will host Gulu whereas Kampala university will host Busitema, all games to be played next week.
