With 10 minutes to play in the opening stanza, Kyambadde beat his marker by pace and was brought down by Lakolo Herman in the 18 but to everyone’s surprise the referee waved play on.
Four minutes later, Mutyaba struck a shot that was acrobatically parried away by Ngoma.
After recess, Kyambadde outpaced the entire backline and shot wide with the keeper to beat. Six minutes later the forward had a chance to make amends but shot in the hands of Ngoma.
Kaddu then came to life and reduced the deficit three minutes after the hour mark from a beautiful pass off Gift Ali.
AS Otoho’s Cisse Moussa replaced Arci Saint as KCCA FC’s Julius Poloto made way for a fresh and fast Muwadda Mawejje. Hardly had he entered the field of play when he caused trouble for the opposition. He beat opposition with pace and skills and his directedness added a whole new dimension to the tie.
Minutes later, KCCA FC’s Mike Mutyaba replaced a limping Herbert Achai as AS Otoho’s Matheus Botamba replaced Fred Ngoma.
