  • Busoga United 0-1 Maroons

Log leaders KCCA opened their second round with a slim win over Wakiso Giants at Kabaka Kyabaggu.

Rogers Mato controversial goal at the stroke half time decided the game that was hugely contested.

Mato, from a seemingly offside position put the ball in an empty net after Allan Okello had been stopped by the Wakiso Giants backline in what appeared like a foul.

Assistant referee Ronald Katenya raised the offside flag which prompted centre official Ali Sabilla to cancel goal.
