Buddu beat Buwekula 2-0 in the 2021 Masaza Cup final held at the St.Mary’s Stadium in Kitende on Saturday.

Second half goals from Marvin Kavuma and Bruno Bunyaga gave Buddu their second Masaza crown at the fully packed St.Mary’s Stadium. They had last won the competition in 2016 at Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.

Buddu were contesting in their fifth Masaza Cup final while Buwekula were playing only their second.

Buwekula had the better goal scoring opportunities but couldn’t make use of them.

Skipper Kakande, Ismail Tumbula and Michael Abura failed to take Buwekula’s chances in both halves.

Captain Kavuma gave Buddu the lead heading home a well delivered Gideon Odongo free kick.

Odongo again fed Bunyaga from another free kick to double Buddu’s advantage.

By fulltime whistle, Buddu smiled to only their second trophy under the stewardship of Steven Bogere who also led them to the 2016 crown.

Meanwhile, Bulemeezi beat Mawokota 1-0 to win the third place playoff, courtesy of Gabriel Eragu’s second half goal.
