Kizza Saves Bul Bidco For Super League Play Off Finals

Bul Bidco's goal keeper Adam Kizza was the man of the match when he saved three penalties and guided his side to a 3-0 win on post match penalties against visiting side CRO FC and sent his side to their first ever super league play off finals.

The home side had leveled the aggregate score to a 2-2 thanks to two first half goals from William Edetta and Ali Maganda.This was after CRO FC  had gone into this game leading 2-0 from the first leg in Mbale.

But the defining moment came during the penalty shoot outs when  Kizza saved Musa Malunda, David Zaake and  Frank Wanade's spot kicks.Bidco's no nonsense central defender Herbert Kakande's had his penalty saved by James Alitho in CRO FC's goal, but the 24 year old could not stop William Odama, William Otongo  and Herbert Odopio from scoring their penalties.

After the game, Bul Bidco's coach, Richard Makumbi, warned that he will attack his  next opponents in the finals at Nakivubo .
 
CRO FC coach John Wasike said that he was so much disappointed with the way his side approached when taking the post match penalties.
 
Bul Bidco will have to wait for their next opponents as the other semi final play off match in Lira  between home side Boroboro FC and Iganga MC FC was aborted in the 55th minute  with Boroboro leading 5-0 on the day. 
 
According to Iganga MC FC official Isa Magoola , Boroboro had led against a 9 man Iganga MC FC  after his side got two red cards  before half time.

Ibrahim Kyangata and Aziz Wakabi were sent off after which center referee Robert Owura whom Magoola alleged that he failed to handle the game in a professional manner  had to call off the game in the 55th minute after injuries to Iganga 's captain Geofrey Kalegga and Isaac Mukisa, yet the visitors' substitutes were over , leaving the number of Iganga MC FC players to six on pitch.

''We could not imagine playing in front of a capacity crowd of around 10,000 to 20,000 fans without any security, the home fans even threatened to kill us from there if it were not me calling the DPC Entebbe Muzafalu Zilaba who called Lira OC police station Faisal Mawerere to rescue us. I cannot imagine such a crucial match  to be officiated by a home [Lira based] referee Owura '',added Magoola.
 
Team captain Kalegga has to wait for a scan to asses the impact of his injury he sustained game.

Iganga led from the first leg with 5-0 hence by the 55th minute when the game was stopped, the score aggregate was 5-5.Boroboro was recently punished for having no security at home during a super league match.
