Pepsi UFL: Holders UCU held to goalless draw at Nkumba

Pepsi University League champions Uganda Christian University drew 0-0 with Nkumba University in the first leg of this year’s quarterfinals.

An entertaining encounter in Entebbe on Thursday, did not deliver goals, leaving the tie open ahead of the second leg.

Both teams had plenty of opportunities to at least find the back of the net, but they were not sharp enough in front of goal in an end-to-end contest.

There will be another chance for the two institutions to try again for a slot in the semifinals when UCU hosts Nkumba in two weeks.

For now, only one team has won its first leg of the quarterfinals and that is St. Lawrence University, which defeated Kampala University 1-0 on the road last Thursday.

In the other quarterfinal, Bugema University and Uganda Martyrs University shared spoils in a one-all draw, played in Bugema on Tuesday.

Neighbours Kyambogo University and Makerere University Business School will conclude the first leg fixtures on Tuesday at Kyambogo.
