There were no big surprises in the weekend’s Uganda Cup Round of 64 with FUFA Big League shots Lweza FC, Mutundwe Lions and Jinja Municipal council making long trips upcountry and were reward with big wins.

Mutundwe played Super Boys in Kaberamaido winning 1-0 thanks to a Paul Mukyerezi solitary goal while

in Kasese, Lweza FC needed penalty shoot outs to see off Kasese Villa 4-3 after normal time ended goalless.

At Nakivubo Stadium, former top flight side Water FC failed to negotiate their way past the round of 64 falling 1-2 to Jinja Municipal council.

Earlier on Saturday, midfielder Geoffrey Buni’s curly strike was all The Saints FC needed to outwit home side Bombo United 1-0 as the Big League giants sailed through to the next round.  Moses Ziwa was on target with a brace as Wandegeya FC defeated FC Barca 2-1 on Sunday in Wakiso.

In Bweyogerere, Erisa Lutaya scored a priceless goal for Ndejje University who edged home side Bweyogerere FC. Lutaya netted two minutes into the second half to silence the home crowd.

At Nakivubo stadium Samuel Bamwite and Lemex Tumwebaze got the goals for Hope Doves as they beat Ex Internationals 2-1 to progress to the next round.
