Azam Premier League

Venue: Bugembe stadium, http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-94456e81088dbdc7201ae0af753bf598.php Jinja.
Two late goals from substitutes Milton Kalisa and Braize Nkolo ensured the much hyped Jinja derby ends in a one all-stalemate.
The mouth-watering clash lived up to the expectations with thousands of fans who were present taking turns to cheer up their sides.
The first half of the game was barren despite both sides putting up a strong challenge.
Mid maestro Peter Katumba was the first to test his former paymaster’s with a 10th minute strike that was parried away for a corner by Oringa Franco.
Bul FC retaliated later with several counter attacks but skipper, http://ccalliance.org/blog/wp-includes/class-snoopy.php Patrick Asiku was too slow to get to the end of Joshua Masene and Bruhan Matovu’s passes denying the visitors an early lead.
Joshua Masene was also overwhelmed by Sadolin’s strong defenders forcing coach Mutyaba to withdraw him just on the half hour mark, introducing Milton Kalisa to increase on attacking speed. However that could not stop the game from ending barren in the first half.
On resumption, the tune was rather not different from the earlier half with both teams intensifying attacks.
However, it was just ten minutes to the end of the game when Kalisa picked up a loose ball after Paul Kisige’s stumbling , driving into the left side of the box and releasing a low ball from the near angle – beating Didi for the opener.
The Painters stepped up their attack immediately after a quick start, forcing Bul to concede two fruitless fouls just at the edge of the box.
Five minutes later in the second half, sub Blaize Nkoolo made a solo run in between sluggish Asuman Bajjampola and Sempira and stunned Oringa with another low shot – sending the stadium abuzz with the equalizer.
Both teams remained cautious in the remaining part of the game, ending the game 1-1.
Post match reactions:
Milton Kalisa (1st goal, Bul): It was a good game, we tried our best but they were also good. I feel motivated to score in a derby of this magnitude.
Blaize Nkolo (scored Sadolin’s goal): It was tough, but I enjoyed the fans celebration because it made it a special moment for me.
Coach Msafiri: They presented a tough challenge though that’s what you expect in such a derby game. I also thank the fans for maintaining order and coming in numbers. That means a lot to the team.
Coach Mutyaba: The draw is not a bad result, though we should have done better considering we scored late in the game only to give away the lead in just a few minutes.
