AYATOU Sempijja’s well taken penalty in the 38th minute helped Buganda defeat Western 1-0 and become the first team to qualify for the MTN FUFA Inter region Championship semi-finals.  

Buganda advanced after getting maximum points in Group A at the Boma ground in Hoima.  Buganda got six points after beating North East 1-0 earlier on.

Western had missed a penalty in the 5th minute of the first half before a cheering crowd.

A visibly excited Buganda coach Edward Golola told New Vision Sport that his focus now is a win against the defending champions Eastern region today to top the group.

“We don’t want to falter in this game so that we top the group and face the second-placed team elsewhere,” Golola remarked.

“Second-placed teams are not all that tougher compared to group winners and from there, I can plan for the final.”

“All my thoughts are on reaching the final, then from there, I can plan to win the trophy.” 

In the other game played earlier in the day, Northern region and West Nile settled for a 1-all draw.

Action will continue with three more games today. Western will take on their North East rivals in one of the matches.
