The victors won a tense shoot out 10-9 after normal time had ended one goal apiece in a match also graced by His Majesty, the Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II.

Ivan Mayanja scored for Mutima Muyanja in the opening stanza of the game.

Moments later, former Police and Gombe SS player Badru Bunkeddeko found the equalizer for Musu as the half time and the rest of the game ended all square to call for penalties.

During the thrilling albeit tense shoot out, Musu out-scored the opposition 10-9.

The hero on the evening was Musu’s forward player Badru Nsimbe who replaced goalkeeper Dennis Ssebuggwawo during the shoot out.

Nsimbe stopped Mustafa Mujuzi’s penalty and Pius Kaggwa also faltered, his effort kissing the woodwork.

The man of the moment, Nsimbe, composed himself before confidently slotting home the winning kick that granted them victory and a slot at the next stage.

Only Badru Bunkeddeko had failed to find the back of the next with his first kick settling on the cross bar.

The Bika football tournament is played only by the Baganda tribe people and it has been played since 1950 with Mbogo the initial winners.

Mmamba Gabunga has won the record number of titles (10).
