URA FC continued their dominance over KCCA FC in the FUFA Super Eight semifinal on Friday evening. This was evident when they eliminated the Kasasiro boys 2-1 to reach the final.
Fred Muhumuza, the URA FC interim coach, masterminded the execution. His side fought against adversity after the unfortunate passing of head coach Sam Timbe to claim the win.
New signings Ivan Ahimbisibwe and Laban Tibita scored URA FC’s goals, while Filbert Obenchan scored the consolation for the hosts.
The question here is, how did they do it?
“We knew they (KCCA FC) would manage the game from the start. We knew they invert their forwards in,” Muhumuza noted in the post-match press conference before adding.
“So we had to be a bit defensive; we also had to manage the movement in the midfield.”
“It explains why we had two pacey wingers (Joseph Ssemujju and Moses Aliro) and one composed forward (Ivan Ahimbisibwe),” he added.
“The former Tooro United and Tooro province head coach also appreciated FUFA for the tournament.
“It’s good we have this tournament; these are preseason games where you try out many things and become better as a team.”
The hosts got off to a good start, winning a penalty after five minutes. However, Moses Waiswa failed to go past Denis Otim.
The visitors then took the lead through new signing Ivan Ahimbisibwe in the 24th minute. However, Filbert Obenchan levelled matters six minutes later. Just when it seemed like the game was headed to extra time, new signing Laban Tibita slotted home the winner in added time to seal the deal.
The tax collectors will face BUL FC in the final next Sunday at the MTN Omondi Stadium Lugogo.
