Eighteen minutes later, Jonah Patrick Kakande leveled matters after a good move he started at the center line with Ronald Ssekiganda, Ivan Bogere and Umar Lutalo exchanging passes only for the youngster to complete it all.

With SC Villa dominating the game after restart, Umar Lutalo doubled Villa’s lead three minutes past the hour mark through the spot after Ssekiganda was brought down into the area by a sliding Abbel Sajjabi Muwanguzi
