Wakiso Giants 5-0 MYDA FC

The Purple Sharks advanced to the round of 16 of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup after thrashing Fufa Big League side, MYDA FC 5-0 at Wakissha Resource Centre.

Defender Hassan Wasswa scored brace while Amos Muwonge, Lawrence Bukenya and Geoffrey Sserunkuma scored one apiece.

There was a slow start from the boys but improved after quarter of the game and launched endless attacks on the visitors goal.

In one, Muwonge thought he has scored the opener when he tapped home Viane Ssekajugo low cross but his effort was rightly ruled out for offside in the 26th minute.

But the deadlock was broken in the 30th minute when Wasswa rose highest to nod home Alex Komakech corner.

Two minutes later, Bukenya scored a beauty when he got at the end of a low ball from Muwonge on the edge of the area.

2-0 it was at the break before Muwonge turned scored in the 68th minute with another fine strike after good work by Komakech.

Wasswa scored again, from similar situation nodding home in the 74th minute after a flick by Muwonge on a ball from Komakech’s corner.

There were changes with Yasin Mugume replacing Hakim Ssenkumba and moments later, Muwonge paved way for Sserunkuma who extended our lead in the 80th minute.

Ivan Kiweewa got some minutes as well on a day of dominance replacing Tom Masiko.

Our next task will be in the league when we host Maroons at home on Tuesday February 18.
