Both sides were chasing the only piece of silverware available this season and indeed, the two sides started the first period cautiously.

To reach the final, Vipers eliminated KCCA FC in the quarterfinal before a 3-0 aggregate win over former holders URA FC while SCVU edged out Bright Stars in the last eight and Simba in the semi-finals.

SCVU Head Coach David Isabirye made history winning his second successive Uganda Cup title after he beat the same Viper while at URA FC last year in Pece Stadium, Gulu. Players Manko Kaweesa Nestroy Kizito, Godfrey Katerega and Ali Kimera joined elites of Uganda Cup with three medals.

Joseph Mpande had put Vipers in the lead in the 77th minute when SCVU team captain Denis Iguma held the ball in the box. And as all appeared to be done, Edema equalised from the spot in the last minute to force the spot kicks in which he notched the all important penalty.

All tied at 1-1 after at full time, the match went to penalties.

Nicholas Wadada missed Vipers’ first, sending his strike onto the woodwork. SCVU’s Savio Kabugo, Manko Kaweesa, George Abege and Denis Iguma all converted as did Emma Kalyowa, Joseph Mpande and Yunus Sentamu for Vipers
