Mbarara City kick started the game on a high and as Joseph Akandwanaho forced Anthony Emojong into a brilliant save from a free kick in the 3rd minute of the game.

However, KCCA thereafter dominated proceedings with relentless attacks until the final whistle.

Mugume broke the deadlock with a sumptuous free kick from the edge of the box in the 15th minute.

Shaban doubled the lead with a penalty kick after Katenga was brought down by Mbarara City right-back Innocent Wafula in the 30th minute.

Coming into the second half, Shaban made it 3-0 from close range after goalkeeper Ronald Mutebi had saved his initial tap in following Haruna Lukwago’s teasing cross in the 50th minute.
