Zakayo Kizito scored in the second minute to give Kitara a surprise early lead. The visitors’ luck continued into the later stages of the first half with the home team not putting up much of a challenge. 

The start of the second half brought more good fortune for Kitara. Hardly a minute past the resumption of the game, Nathan Oloro scored the second goal for Kitara. Surely the best way to start the second half: 0 : 2 up. 

Unusual position? Yes.

Kitara don’t have a win this season. With only a point collected before this match, nothing suggests they know how to manage a win. The bottom of the table clubs had never been in leading positions this season. 

When MYDA’s Ibra Nsimbe converted a penalty in the 65th minute, it was only a matter of time before we saw the equalizer from Myda and perhaps the winner. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be. 90 minutes and the score was 2:1 in favor of the visitors.

Tempers rose. Abdallah Mubiru of Kitara was given his marching orders with a second yellow card after collecting his first booking in the 74th minute.

MYDA believed. Still within the 6 minutes of added time but now with an extra player on the field. The Tororo based team, playing at home, threw in all they had. 

It paid off after 5 minutes when Moses Batali scored with a minute to the end of the match. It was intense, both sides were reckless, Isma Mafabi, the MYDA skipper got a second yellow card and was also sent off. However he had done his part, at least for this match. A point was earned. 

It ended 2 : 2, a man less and a point more for each.
