NOT even having a man less on a team that lacked five starters could halt Uganda's run to a 100% record in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup group stages.

NOT even having a man less on a team that lacked five starters could halt Uganda's run to a 100% record in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup group stages.
Cranes, who had Isaac Mulyanga sent off for rough play, easily dismissed Zanzibar with goals from Simeon Masaba and Abubaker Tabula in Arusha's Sheikh Amri Abeid stadium yesterday.
Uganda will in the semi-final on Thursday meet Group A's runner-up that will be decided by today's match between Sudan and Kenya.
After Tanzania topping the Mwanza group yesterday, the pool's second slot remained a battle between Eritrea, Kenya and Sudan.
In Arusha, Rwanda was given a lifeline to the group's second semi-final berth by Uganda's win.
Masaba put life to a dull Cranes start by rifling in the ball from 25 meters in the 28th minute. But, doubts were shortly after cast over Cranes' ability to finish with maximum points when teenager Mulyanga intentionally kicked a defenceless Mosi Shaban.
Burundian referee Benard Nimubona unleashed a red card ending Mulyanga's second Cranes match ten minutes to recess.
Tabula, who came on for injured Geoffrey Sserunkuma, again proved a utility player with one of the best goals of the tournament.
Tabula saw goalkeeper Mbarouk Suleiman off his line in the 88th minute and lobbed the ball in from 40 meters on the left wing.
Line-up: Uganda- Ben Lwanga, Aussi Kaaya, Nestroy Kizito, Sam Mubiru, E. Balyejusa, H. Kaweesa, G. Sserunkuma (Abubaker Tabula), Simeon Masaba, Phillip Ssozi, I. Mulyanga, C. Kayege (Phillip Obwin). Ends
