Kenneth Lubega, Phillip Ssebunya and Oscar Wodero were on hand to score for Warriaz and level the game at 3-3 by half time.
Strykers were not to be denied victory though, and Makanaa, Kasule and Tabu were on score sheet yet again during the second half as they jointly added more four goals to seal their third win in four games.
