Mawejje scored the fourth goal in the 27th minute to put MYDA under intense pressure. Three minutes later, Mululi added the fifth one as he scored a second brace of the game.

MYDA managed to deny Police a clean sheet when Batali finally made way past a largely untested defence of the opponents to score the only goal for the visitors.

Police made two changes as the second half began when Tony Mawejje and Derrick Kakooza replaced Fahad Kizito and Mululi. Duncan Ssenide and Eric Ssenjobe came on when the Cops made more changes as Mawejje and Reuben Kimera left the pitch.

Final changes saw Tumwesigye withdrawn and Mubarak Nsubuga filled the position. Ocen managed to add the sixth for Police in the 80th minute to pile more pressure on MYDA who are fighting to save their season.
