2016 winners Vipers SC have beaten Busoga United 2-1 at FUFA Technical Center in Njeru to take their aggregate to 5-1.
They had taken a bold leap in the first leg after scoring 3 unanswered goals at Kitende.
They wasted no time in proving that Busoga were not their match by taking hold of the second leg through Yunus Sentamu’s 23rd minute strike. He got at the right end of Richard Basangwa’s good work.
The visitors managed to protect their lead up to the half time break but it couldn’t survive the 65th minute.
Substitute Isaac Waigona headed home a superb Shaka Ssozi cross to draw the game level. He had come on for Otwao Abubakari 5 minutes earlier.
Old boy Lawrence Tezikya iced any hopes of a late dramatic ending with Vipers’ second of the evening sending the aggregate to 5-1. He refrained from celebrating his goal in respect of his former paymasters.
The Venoms join BUL FC on the exclusive list of teams qualified for the round of 16.
