Kambugu Tarzan scored the solitary goal of the game to help Kyetume earn all three points in their maiden Fufa Big League game.

Sharp FC another newly promoted team from Kabaale defied odds to stun Sun City FC 1-0 in their own backyard in Kasese.Dickens Ainebyona struck the only goal of the game.

In Zombo District, Paidha Black Angels registered a convincing 3-1 victory against Busia Fisheries with Jackson Nsubuga bagging the first hat trick of the season.

Ndejje University eased past new comers Agape SS 4-1 while former Express FC and national team midfielder Derrick Tekkwo scored as Kitara FC edged Kireka FC 1-0.
