What you need to know:

Agasha scored early but the hosts replied quickly too before both sides managed to deal with each other’s attack.

Didas Agasha’s fourth minute strike was cancelled by Faruku Karemera’s free kick as their respective sides St. Kagwa Bushenyi High School and Nganwa High School Kabwohe shared spoils in the first leg of the preliminary round of the Fufa TV Cup on Sunday.

The sides locked horns at Nganwa on Eid Day in a bid to progress to the Round of 64 due June 29 and 30 at various schools.

Agasha scored early but the hosts replied quickly too before both sides managed to deal with each other’s attack. Much more is expected of the sides in the do-or-die affair next Saturday at St. Kagwa.

Since the second term has just started, the school teams can be excused for saying the preparations were yet to hit full gear by match day but Nganwa’s coach Yusuf Mutebi believes a week should be good enough to get them to the heights they need to win the second leg.

His opposite number Collins Agaba believes the result was reflective of the derby but insisted he prefers to see his side keep to what he asked them to do; usually to keep and starve the opponent of the ball.
