*Kyetume 1-1 URA
Saidi Kyeyune scored a thunderous equaliser as URA FC and Kyetume FC played a 1-1 draw in a league game at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.
His shot, taken from outside the box after gathering from captain Shafic Kagimu in the 73rd minute, not only managed to go past keeper Joel Mutakubwa, but also forced the net to loose its grip from the woodwork!
The rare scenes necessitated a two-minute break as the officials tried to sew the net back to the woodwork.
Whether the goal nets were in perfect conditions, will be a debate for another day.
The heavy-hitter has now scored five league goals for the tax collectors this season.
