 Acholi Province stormed the finals of the 2019 FUFA DRUM tournament in style after overcoming Bugisu in a closely contested semi-final clash at the Pece War Memorial Stadium, Gulu on Saturday.

Tito Okello’s 8th minute strike was the all important strike in a match watched by a capacity passionate crowd.

The Vipers Sports Club forward struck the ball from an acute angle beating Kataka FC goalkeeper Edward Kasibante in Bugisu’s goal to send the crowd ecstatic.

It necessitated collective display, coupled with solid defending and team work antics as Acholi defended the lead.

Hard working Acholi midfielder Hudu Mulikyi, who plies his club football trade at Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) was named man of the match, earning Shs 100,000 on the spot and a plaque handed over by Kilak South County Member of Parliament in Amuru District, Hon. Gilbert Olanya.

Hundreds of excited Acholi fans at the Pece War Memorial Stadium danced in celebration of storming the finals.
