At Kyabazinga Stadium (Bugembe) today, Bul FC hosted UPDF in game week 19 of the Uganda Premier League. The few available fans at the stadium were treated to a very entertaining Tuesday as they watched the two sides score 7 goals today.
First half saw Bul FC lead the way with 2:1 thanks to Deogratius Ojok’s penalty in the 5th minute and Simon Oketch’s goal in the 22nd minute for Bul FC. Ramathan Dudu pulled one for the visitor in the 34th minute to end the first half 2:1.
If the first half was entertaining, the second half was even better as the fans were treated to four more goals, two apiece from both sides as we saw, Ezekiel Katende equalized for the visitor in the 47th minute to make it 2:2. The home team again responded by restoring their lead in the 60th minute through Deogratius Ojok to make it 3:2, and after going behind again for 8 minutes, Brian Kayanza converted a penalty in the 68th minutes to make it 3:3.
At this point, the match was at its best with all teams playing an open football, but it was Simon Oketch who scored the fourth goal for Bul FC in the 80th minute to complete his brace and won the game for his side 4:3 at full time whistle.
Bul FC moved to 9th position with 24 points, only 4 points behind their opponent UPDF who occupies the 8th position.
