The second stanza was all for MUBS to take as they dominated with better interswitch plays from Ssengendo, Benjamin Nazar and Justin Odong to put the hosts on the back foot.

The high pressing game later paid off as Sharif Ssengendo beat his makers to put the ball in the back of the net scoring the equalising goal in the 86th minute.

The panicky Kyambogo defence fumbled with the ball in their own half and were punished by Nazar Benjamin who bagged the winner for the visitors with just a minutes to full time.

A win for MUBS away from home puts them on a better position of progressing to the Semifinals as they will host the return leg at their home ground.
