Arafat Usama saw his brilliant header hit the woodwork in the late minutes of first stanza before Bashir Ssekagya claimed a brilliant save to stop Abubaker Mayanja as he reached his far post.

The Kasasiro boys came back stronger in the second stanza as they dominated play and a brilliant build up from Joa Gabriel who set up Etienne Katenga for a cross resulted into an opener headed in by Abubaker Mayanja in the 49th minute as he opened up his account in the yellow colours.

Filbert Obenchan also had a chance to try his luck on goal but his powerful effort was parried away by Bashir Ssekagya for a corner.

Mayanja at the right place in the right time once again raised above Ambrose Arinda to head in the second for KCCA FC as he completed his brace.
