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 .

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.
