Wakiso Giants suffered the first home defeat in eight games after falling 3-1 to Police in the first leg of the Stanbic Uganda Cup quarter finals.
Derrick Kakooza, Yusuf Ssozi and Ben Ocen scored for the Cops at the Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium to turn Ruben Kimera early own goal into just a mere consolation.
The boys had a bright start and got the desired gift when Kimera headed a teasing George Kaddu cross into his own net inside five minutes.
Frank Ssebuufu and Viane Ssekajugo had chances to extend lead but wasted good chance before Kakooza tapped home from close range at the other side twenty minutes later.
Ssozi put the visitors in the lead for the first time before half time and Ocen added another after the break to earn the Cops a first leg advantage.
We must win the return leg by at least three goals at Lugogo on June 4 to reach the last four.
The Line-up: Kiirya (GK), Atendele, Kaddu (Namwanja), Kawooya, Satulo, Lubwama, Ssenfuka, Faizul (Masiko), Ssebuufu (Wahab), Kaggwa (Muwonge) and Ssekajugo
Unused subs: Emukule, Wasswa and Komakech
