Uganda Cup: Record holders Express dumped out, URA progresses

Joint record-holders Express FC were on Wednesday dumped out of Uganda Cup after suffering a 4-3 defeat in a penalty shootout at the hands of Maroons FC.

The match had ended 3-3 in regulation time. Express took the lead through Frank Kalanda in the fifth minute but Maroons were back on level terms four minutes later through David Ndihabwe. Maroons then went ahead in the 38th minute through Maxwell Okello. 

Express were soon back on level terms after Eric Kambale drilled in a sweet free-kick, before Maroons again went ahead through Steven Mukwala. Dan Galiwango converted a penalty deep in injury time after Patrick Bayiga had been adjudged to have committed an offence in the danger zone.

Express scored three kicks as Maroons were successful in four shots. 

Elsewhere, URA went on the rampage hitting non-league side Nyamityobora 8-3 at Arena of Visions to romp into the last 16. Patrick Isiagi was the hero of the day netting a hattrick. 

The winner of the Uganda Cup qualifies to represent Uganda at the CAF Confederation Cup.
