KCCA FC scored a whopping eight goals as they eliminated Fort Portal’s Academy team Friends of Soccer (FOS) from the second round of the Uganda Cup.
During the game played at Lugogo stadium, Tom Masiko scored a hat-trick while Herman Wasswa netted a brace. The other goals came from in-form Micheal Birungi, Tony Odur and Henry Kisekka.
But in unlikely turn of events, the other game between defending champions SC Victoria University away in Luwero against Ndejje University failed to kick off as match officials were absent.
According to David Isabirye, a sports journalist who was at the scene, match officials Moses Kamba and Moses Yiga arrived late for the game at 5:20pm. The game was supposed to kick off at 4:00pm.
