Bugema hold UMU to 1-all draw in University football league quarterfinal

Bugema University and Uganda Martyrs University drew one-all in the first leg of their quarterfinal tie in the 2022 Pepsi University Football League

In the game played in Bugema today Tuesday, the hosts scored first through Dennis Kimuli while Sunny Kaija was on target for the visitors.

Bugema had a strong start and earned a penalty when Isaac Ssenyunja was fouled by Saddam Omukoboi in the box in the 11th minute.

Kimuli stepped up and converted it but despite being dominant, Bugema could not add another goal, and 1-0 they led at the break.

The second stanza began with Bugema in search of a second goal but they were not clinical enough.

Soon after, UMU started to grow in confidence and equalized in the 59th minute thanks to Kaija’s goal.

Both teams tried much to find a winning goal but it could not come thus settling for a draw.

They will meet again in a fortnight in what will be a do-or-die contest that will be hosted by UMU

Action in the quarterfinals of the Pepsi University Football League continues on Thursday with defending champions Uganda Christian University away to Nkumba University
