Mbarara City Football Club overcame Onduparaka 2-0 in a Super 8 classification played at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium in Wakiso on Tuesday.
A goal in each half by Paul Mucureezi and Jasper Aheebwa delivered the points for the Ankole Lions before a handful of fans.
Mucureezi found the back of the net past goalkeeper Yunus Baker after defender Hillary Mukundane’s headed assist as early as the 5th minute to give Brian Ssenyondo’s charges a bright start on the evening.
On the other hand, Mbarara City’s new signing Tom Ikara was at his “A” game denying Ceaser Okhuti, Rashid Okocha and Vitalis Tabu during different attempts at goal.
With 16 minutes to the end of the game, Mbarara City buried off the game with a rare strike from left-back Jasper Aheebwa after Orit had been denied by goalie Baker in a one against one incident.
Mbarara City finished third to take Shs 10M as prize money as Onduparaka takes fourth place with a cash reward of Shs 8M.
The final of the Super 8 will be played on Sunday, 25th August 2019 between the defending champions KCCA and Vipers at Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.
