At StarTimes stadium Lugogo, hosts Kampala beat Bunyoro 3-1.

Tony Odur, Richard Kavuma and Daniel Sserunkuma – the Azam Uganda Premier League top scored for Kampala as Malisha Jamal scored Bunyoro’s consolation goal.

Bugisu and Teso settled for a 2-all draw at Mbale municipal stadium.
West Nile beat Ankole 2-0, Tooro defeated Karamoja 2-0 as Rwenzori and Bukedi settled for a 1-all draw.

The tournament winner will walk away with UGX100m.
