Buwekula will battle Buddu in the final of the 2021 prestigious Airtel Masaza Cup.

This is after Buwekula defeated Mawokota while Buddu eliminated Bulemezi in the semi-final games played on Wednesday at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.

Buwekula took the first final’s spot after defeating Mawokota 5-3 in spotkicks after a 1-all stalemate at the end of the 90.

Lazaro Bwambale put Mawokota ahead just before the break, heading in a well driven Isaac Ofoyirwoth, but ten minutes into the second half, Isaac Musiima levelled matters for Buwekula from the spot after Ismail Tamubula was bought down in the area by Saidi Mayanja.

The game went into spot-kicks and Isaac Kweizera Onyango saved Faizo Matovu’s kick to ensure Buwekula advance to their first final since finishing as runners up in 2012.

Ivan Ssemujju, Bernard Alijuma, Michael Abura, Michael Kimmich and Isaac Musiima converted their spots for Buwekula while Dan Kazibwe, Mike Kintu and Pius Ssebulime found the back of the net for losing Mawokota.

The other semi-final also was forced into spotkick after nothing could separate Buddu and Bulemezi as they played out to a goalless stalemate after 90 minutes.

Buddu consequently won 3-1 in the spotkicks to seal a showdown with Buwekula in the final.

Buddu are one-time Airtel Masaza Cup champions, having won the cup in 2016 after edging past Gomba in the final played at the Mandela International Stadium, Namboole.

The date and venue of this year’s finals will be confirmed by the organizing committee in the next few days.

Last season’s final was played at the St.Mary’s Stadium, Kitende so its left to been seen if the committee will opt for Kitende again.
