•Bright Stars 0-4 Police

KCCA FC and Police FC Monday secured their spots in the quarterfinals of the Stanbic Uganda Cup, joining Kitara FC, BUL FC, and Pajule Lions in the next stage of the competition.

KCCA FC clinched their berth with a narrow 1-0 victory over URA FC in a tightly contested match in Lugazi. Mustafa Kizza emerged as the hero for KCCA, netting the lone goal of the match in the 85th minute.

The game was temporarily halted due to heavy rainfall, adding to the intensity of the encounter. Kizza capitalized on a mistake by URA FC’s goalkeeper, James Alitho, whose mishandling of the ball allowed Kizza’s shot to slip through his grasp, sealing the fate of the match in KCCA’s favor.

Despite URA FC’s commendable performance throughout the game, under the leadership of David Obua, it was the unfortunate error in the dying minutes that dashed their hopes of advancing further in the competition.

For KCCA FC, this victory presents a significant opportunity to pursue silverware this season, following a lacklustre performance in the league.
