Forty five minutes later, treat the match assistants were nowhere to be seen and that remained the same half an hour after scheduled kickoff before both sides agreed to use makeshift linesmen chosen by either side.

The funniest part is when the center referee borrowed a whistle from one of the JMC Hippos fans to kick off the game.

The game was flurried with multiple mistakes and at the end, a section of Nyamityobora officials confronted the center referee in search of answers.

In the other game played, UCU Mbale defeated Airtel Kitara at the Mbale municipal stadium to progress. The goal was scored by Abdul Karim Ntalaba.
