URA FC were shocked by Regional league outfit KJT at home with a 1-0 defeat courtesy of Nicholas Kabonge goal in the 25th minute of the tie.

Emmanuel Wasswa’s first half sole goal was enough for Water FC to eliminate Maroons FC becoming the first AUPL side to see exit in this year’s edition.

Elsewhere, Baker Buyala, Abudallah Nyanzi and Steven Ategeka were on the score sheet as Soana got better of Ntoda FC at Kyamate grounds in Ntungamo

Hamis Tibita scored late in the second half for BUL FC as they earned a 1-0 victory past Sun City FC at Nyakasanga ground in Kasese

In Lugogo, Mark Twinamatsiko got off the mark as Kira United coach with a convincing 3-0 win against City Lads through goals from Moses Kinye Seruyide, Najib Ssali and Kakeeto David.

Steven Bogere’s UPDF FC cruised passed Busia Fisheries in Busia courtesy of a Mustafa Kasolo goal in the 60th minute of the game.

Kyetume FC bowed out at the hands of Luweero United losing 3-4 on penalties following a goalless draw in the 90 minutes. Young custodian Farouk Yawe saved two spot kicks.
