Stanbic Uganda Cup (Second Leg)
Busoga United FC 1-2 Vipers SC
Vipers SC secure their passageway to this year’s round of 16 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup, as they saw off Busoga United FC 2-1 at the Fufa Technical Center, Njeru.
Forward Yunus Sentamu and Lawrence Tezikya were on target for the Venoms as we progressed on aggregate 5-1 after the first leg ended 3-0 at St Mary’s stadioum – Kitende on Easter Monday.
Sentamu gave Vipers the lead on 24 minutes connecting home a cut back by Richard Basangwa past Busoga goalkeeper Rogers Omedwa.
Both sides had chances to get on the scoresheet throughout the match, with our goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora producing a number of saves, although the hosts will be disappointed not to have grabbed the win after an impressive second-half showing.
Isaac Wagoina, a second half substitute headed past Fabien Mutombora after raising highest to nod home a curling cornerkick by another substitute Ivan Wani.
The pressure was relentless in the dying stages with the Venoms clinging on the win, with Wagoina again wriggling free in the penalty area only for Mutombora to keep him at bay again, before Wani had a late effort flash over the bar.
The Venoms came out with great intention in Friday’s affair, with Fred Kajoba’s side dominating possession in the early stages, with the Jinja based side working as industriously as ever to keep them at bay.
With the game destined for a stalemate, Tezikya pounced late in the 85th minute to add a second to seal the deal after collecting a decent through ball from Joseph Dhata.
