The Masaza Cup quarter final first leg between Kyadondo and Buddu ended on a wrong note despite the visitors picking a 2-1 win.

With Buddu leading 2-1 in the 88th minute, Kyadondo players attacked the centre referee citing poor officiating after cancelling what could have been their equaliser in the dying minutes.

And that sparked off hungry Kyadondo fans who stormed the pitch and chased the referees blaming them for the wrong decisions on the pitch.

As a result, the Police had to use tear gas to disperse the fans and bring the situation back to normal at Hormisdallen in Gayaza.

And a decision from the Masaza Cup Competitions will be expected to be passed in the coming days regarding Saturday’s incidents.

Nevertheless, Buddu will feel lucky for picking up a first leg advantage over Kyadondo.

They got their goals through Pius Ssebulime and Kasule Meddie while Ramathan Mwanga scored for Kyadondo on the other hand.

Kasule, in particular, scored a beauty when he had to round off a keeper and one defender before scoring.

The two sides will meet again next week on Sunday at Masaka Recreation grounds for the second leg of this year’s Masaza Cup quarters.

In the other quarter final game held at Magyo, Buvuma played out to a goalless draw against Mawokota.

Mawokota, coached by Richard Malinga are seeking to go far in this year’s Masaza Cup edition having topped their group in Muganzirwaza.

It’s strong to note that the defending champions Busiro, didn’t get past the group stages and a new Champion will be crowned.
