Proline brilliantly overcame MYDA 4-1 in the first leg of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup at MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo on Tuesday.
Hakim Kiwanuka slotted home the opener in the 4th minute of the first half.
MYDA tried to find its way back into the game but Proline was solid in the defence with goalkeeper Nicholas.
In the added minutes of the first half, Brian Umony converted a penalty to make it 2-0 following a handball in the area by defender Stephen Okello.
A minute later, Hamisi Kiiza stretched the host’s lead to 3-0—-thanks to Kiwanuka’s phenomenal assist.
