KCCA FC tamed Ankole Lions at MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.
Denis Iguma’s first half header and Samuel Ssenyonjo’s strike were all the 13 time Uganda Premier League Champions needed to grab the three points against a bogey Mbarara City side.
Moses Aliro had the game’s first moment of offensive promise in the 9th minute, but Mbarara’s custodian Ssekeba Mohammed made a spectacular block to deny him in the 9th minute.
Eight minutes later, Aliro came tormenting again but this time around Mukundane cleared his lines.
In the 39th minute, Aliro was fouled and KCCA FC was awarded a free kick. Aliro took the resultant kick and Iguma nodded in the game’s first goal.
Aliro was later stretchered off injured and replaced with Musana Hassan with a minute to go before the interval.
After the restart, Mazengo Loro replaced Juma Balinya.
In the 52nd minute, Ssenyonjo doubled KCCA FC ‘s lead with some quick tap in after a melee in the box that initially saw Iguma attempt to score.
Mbarara’s Bashir Mutanda was then cautioned by the referee.
In the 65th minute, Mutanda rattled the woodwork with a bullet header and Magmbo cleared his lines.
Mazengo almost stretchered KCCA’s lead in the 72nd minute after he had left two markers for dead but Mukundane cleared.
Lwanga Charles was introduced for Brian Aheebwa in the 81st minute and two minutes later Iguma Denis was cautioned for a foul.
Full Time, KCCA FC 2-0 Mbarara City FC.
