BUL FC played out an entertaining one all draw with Mbarara City in Uganda Premier League on Wednesday afternoon.

The Eastern Giants went a goal down early in the contest after Bebe Swalik’s fourteen minutes’ opener at Kakyeka Stadium. 

But they drew level two minutes later through a brilliant finish from Simon Peter Oketch.

Mbarara City could have jumped into the lead earlier than they did, only for Abdul Kimera to save their penalty kick ten minutes into the game..

When the action did resume in the second half, BUL pushed for a second goal especially after the coach introduced Anwar Ntege for  Deogracious Ojok and Musa Esenu  for Robert Mukongotya.

Their influence presented an opportunity to claim all the three points in the 90th minute but Oketch’s goal bound shot was blocked by the host’s Byekwaso. 

This clash marked the end of our UPL first round and the result has pushed us to 20 points from fifteen outings.
