Coming into the game, Abbey Bogere Kikomeko put trust in Joel Madondo and Kitata to search for goals and their combination paid dividends in the 28th minute.

Madondo did the necessary spadework to set up Kitata who tapped home from close range to register his first goal in the BUL colors.

Arua Hill equalized through John Rogers Okumu who headed perfectly from a corner kick eight minutes later.

Moments into the second half, Arua Hill new signing Ibrahim Orit had his debut cut short by injury as he was brought off limping.

Both sides threatened with a pursuit for a possible winning goal and Arua Hill were handed a numerical advantage when Tahomera was sent off in the 65th minute.
