A well organized Ndejje University beat Nkumba at home 2-1 to increase their chances of qualification to the next stage in the first quarter final of the University Football League.
Muhumuza Emmanuel striked for Ndejje just before half time from the spot at the right hand of Joseph Yiga after Douglas Muganga brought down Onek Alfred. Nkumba goalkeeper Yiga couldn’t do enough to save the situation.
