UPDF were defeated 3:2 by Arua Hill, a team located at the heart of Arua Town in their first leg of the Uganda Cup. But it was not going to end there as the military men plotted their revenge and served it very cold today to Arua Hill Club at Bombo Stadium. 

Thanks to their two away goals scored in the first leg, the UPDF only needed to win the return leg 1:0 to send them to the next round in this competition.

And they made the perfect start in the game with Alex aka Benzema scoring as early as the third minute to put the UPDF team ahead in the game.

Alex’s  goal turned out to be the tie decider for both teams, as the  UPDF FC fought hard in the second half to hold on to their 1:0 lead. At full time, it was 1-0 for UPDF.

UPDF FC now joins the likes of SC Villa, Mbale Heroes FC and Bright Stars FC on the list of teams that progressed to the round of 16 of the Uganda Cup on Sunday.
