Bottom placed Kitara FC today hosted BUL FC in a must win encounter at the Masindi Stadium in today. It was a match that the home team needed to win in order to improve their chances of moving up above the relegation zone this season. Mathematically anything is still possible for Kitara FC in terms of their survival in the league but they had to do the donkey work of coming from behind today to draw with BUL FC at their home today.
Joseph Ssemujju’s two first half goals gave BUL FC a 2:0 lead going into halftime break. He scored the opener in the 36th minute and notched in another one in the 45th minute towards the stroke of halftime.
With another 45 minutes left to play for, the home team, unfazed with the outcome of the first period in the game, recollected themselves from where they visitors left them and decided to give it a go in the second half.
Patrick Kusemerewa restored the home team back into the game with a 74th minute consolation goal that made it 1:2 with 16 minutes left to go on the clock. Playing at their home ground in Masindi, Kitara knew they had to keep pushing and asking questions in the game, questions were answered in the 89th minute when their away team gifted them a penalty that Edson Agondeze scored to make it 2:2 going into the full time whistle.
BUL FC now stands at 10th position in the league with 27 points and they should be happy with today’s result but consequently for Kitara their opponents for today, they are not doing great at the bottom with 10 points and will need to win almost the rest of their remaining games if they were to survived in the league this season.
