Stanbic Uganda Cup: Proline edges Bright Stars to claim championship

By Football256 Team

Proline FC climaxed their 2018/2019 season fine form with a double after winning both FUFA Big League title and Stanbic Uganda Cup.

In the Stanbic Uganda Cup held at Masaka Recreation Grounds on Saturday, Proline edged Bright Stars 5-4 on penalties after a one-all stalemate in normal time.

Nelson Senkatuka had scored for Bright Stars before Mustafa Mujjuzi brought matters on level terms in the dying minutes of the game.

Proline looked the better side, missing two open chances in the first ten minutes of the game including Ivan Bogere’s one-on-one with Bright Stars’ custodian Hamza Muwonge.

Proline missed another in the 24th minute as Ivan Bogere’s pass to Noordin Bunjo was poorly calculated from a fine counter attack.

Bright Stars got its first open chance in the 35th minute of the game, Senkatuka missed with Hassan Matovu in the Proline’s goal to  beat but couldn’t make it count.

Just one minute into the second half, Nelson Senkatuka missed another one-on-one chance, Matovu again was in the right position to save Shafic Bisaso’s side.

It was in the 56th minute when Senkatuka broke the deadlock for Bright Stars, this time beating Matovu with a well curled free kick.

Ten minutes to full time, Bright Stars were reduced to ten men, Aggrey Kirya got a second booking due to time wasting.

Proline utilised their numerical advantage to hunt for an equaliser, they eventually did it in stoppage time.

It was Henry Kiwanuka who handled the ball in his own box and referee had no alternative but to point at the spot.

Mujjuzi stepped up and placed the ball in the top left corner to take his tally in the competition to four goals.

In penalties, Mujjuzi, Bright Anukani, Allom Egaku, Ivan Bogere and Hakim Kiwanuka all scored for Proline.

Farouk Katongole, Sam Ssekitto, Rajab Kakooza, Methodius Jungu scored for Bright Stars while skipper Nelson Senkatuka failed to convert his to deny his side victory.

Proline booked a slot in the 2019/2020 Total CAF Confederations Cup.
