Blacks Power held BUL to a 1-1 draw to get their UPL Second Round off to a positive start at FUFA Technical Centre Njeru.

BUL who won the reverse fixture 5-0 at Akii-bua Stadium last year, were clear favourites to get the job done but fell behind just after 17 minutes thanks to a Dickens Okwir strike.

Okwir, from outside the box, scored with a thunderbolt with his right foot to silence the home crowd.

But new signing Sam Kayongo Ssekamatte restored parity before the break on his debut.

Ssekamatte, joining from Arua Hill to fill Karim Ndugwa’s void, raced on Douglas Muganga’s through ball before poking past an on-rushing goalkeeper.

BUL were at the front for the entirety of the second half, and skewed some good chances before the 90 minutes elapsed.

Ronald Otti headed over from a well delivered corner, Ssekamatte’s goal-bound effort was cleared away by Ahmed Amayo while Kalyowa hesitated bedore the keeper sprawled on the ground for a good save.

Blacks Power almost restored their advantage when he benefited from Aggrey Madoi’s poor back pass, beat Otti before he was denied by a late Muganga block.

BUL move to 28 points, remaining second, four points adrift of leaders KCCA.

Blacks Power are now on 12 points.
