A second half master class meant BUL FC came away from Wakiso with all the three points. It was all about Martin Aprem and Alex Kitata after the break as they combined to give the Eastern Giants a precious 3-0 win over Wakiso Giants on Saturday.

The hosts were fairly competitive in the first half given the fact that they restricted BUL to only one chance worthy of note. Shafiq Kwikiriza justified the coach’s decision to hand him his first start this season when he went through on goal only that his effort whistled slightly wide.

The Eastern Giants could come close again twenty minutes later but a corner from Jerome Kirya was not met by any yellow shirt in the box as both sides went into the break level.

However, the resistance was broken by two quick fire goals at the start of the second half.

Aprem opened the scoring before Alex Kitata doubled the advantage to take his goal count to seven; both goals came in the 47th minute.

BUL then put the result to bed twelve minutes to the final whistle when Aprem completed his brace.

This was our eighth win in nine games and the result buttressed our position at the top. We now have 24 points, seven ahead of second placed Vipers who will be in action on Sunday.

We play again on Tuesday next week against Express at Wankulukuku.
