Kampala Regional League side Impala Hill FC have eliminated Big league side Proline FC 5-3 on penalties in the Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 64 after a 1-1 draw in a game played at Old Kampala playground.
The 2019 Uganda cup champions Proline FC succumbed to an early goal in first half as Edward Masembe put the hosts ahead as early as the 18th minute of the game.
Impala Hill defended as a team to hold onto the early goal as they managed to end the first half with an advantage.
Proline FC came back stronger in the second half as they pushed for an equaliser and their efforts were awarded by a goal from Brian Mato in the 48th minute of the game.
Impala Hills had a lot of work to do as they had to defend in numbers so as to stop the high attacking Proline FC team who wanted to kill off the game in the 90 minutes.

Impala Hill FC managed to score all their five penalties as Yusuf Mukisa who came off the bench missed Proline FC’s decisive penalty which was saved by Shmulan Kamya.
