Earlier in the day, the semifinal was slated to be between Jinja Progressive (JIPRA) and St Mary’s School Kitende but Amus launched a petition.

Late on in the afternoon on Saturday, the USSSA Disciplinary committee discovered that JIPRA had used four ineligible players at the Quaterfinal stage.

Former Onduparaka Forward Jarieko James, Kibirango Eric, Mpasa Swabil and Yasin Masamba were the players in question.

This meant that JIPRA were to be eliminated only for Amus College to progress onto the semifinal.

Amus is coached by former KCCA and Mawokota coach Richard Malinga while St Julian is coached by former Gomba head coach Felix Ssekabuuza who is currently at Gaddafi FC

On Sunday, the stage will be set for exhibition of skills in search of National glory as St Julian High School, Seeta will take on Amus College.

Sunday Match ups.
