KAMPALA- Allan Okello scored two goals to help KCCA FC beat Onduparaka 3-1 in the Pilsner Super 8 semi-final at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo on Friday.

Musa Ramathan opened KCCA’s fortunes in the fourth minute while Okello, KCCA’s captain of the day, doubled the lead on the stroke of halftime.

Rashid Okocha gave Onduparaka hope with a goal on the 52nd minute. Okello’s quick reaction two minutes later, sealed KCCA’s victory to set up a second successive final with Vipers August 25. Onduparaka play Mbarara for the third place.

Mike Mutebi’s men beat Vipers in last year’s inaugural final of this pre-season tournament.
