Amus College eliminated defending champions St. Mary’s Boarding Secondary School Kitende 10-9 on penalties after a goalless draw in normal time to reach the final.

To reach the semifinal, Amus needed a petition win over Jinja Progressive Academy (JIPRA) who had eliminated them in the Quarterfinal stage.
