It ended all square at Nakisunga Saza ground after BUL and URA settled for a one all draw on Friday. Jeromy Kirya scored his second goal of the season as BUL matched to an early lead before George Ssenkaaba snatched a late equalizer for the home side
But despite the points being shared, BUL will feel that it is two points dropped rather than one gained after leading the game for close to 90 minutes.
The Eastern Giants started with real intensity and imposed on URA quickly. They capitalized with just two minutes played when Kirya beat Arionzi Nafian in URA’s goal with an awesome finish to put BUL Infront.
As the first half wore on, the hosts started to push for an equalizer, and they had a George Ssenkaaba volley cleared off the lines.
The second half walked a similar pattern, URA piling on pressure, however, they declined to benefit from Douglas Muganga’s hand ball at the edge of the box with Ibrahim Dada squandering the free kick.
Kalyowa then stood too big in goal to deny Dada from the spot before Vincent Ziwa’s well taken free kick was saved by Nafian at the other end.
It looked like the Eastern Giants were trotting away with all the points as the 90 minutes collapsed with Alex Isabirye’s side 1-0 up but Ssenkaaba had other ideas. The forward struck a last minute goal for his side in the additional minutes to earn the hosts a share of the spoils.
BUL have remained on top of the log after the result but level on seven points with SC Villa who took Express to the trench with a 2-0 beating at Wankulukuku.
The Eastern Giants are next in action against the Jogoos at Fufa Technical Center next Friday before a huge match on the road against Gaddafi FC four days later.
