Quarter Finals, Second Leg

YMCA (0) vs (2) St. Lawrence, Buwambo


YMCA Comprehensive Institute are confident they can overturn a two-goal deficit when they host St. Lawrence University (SLAU) this Friday for the second leg of their Pepsi University Football League quarter-final at home at Buwambo.

The first leg played a fortnight ago at Crown City Campus, Kavule saw St. Lawrence come away with a two goal advantage. YMCA Captain Twaha Mutyaba, however, believes that they can do the impossible at home.

“We are ready to hustle and make sure we come up with a positive result to progress to the semi final at the end of the day,” Twaha said. “The first leg was a good game but we committed some mistakes that St. Lawrence took advantage of. We have been training hard for the last two weeks and come Friday we are going to make our fans happy,” he added.

For St. Lawrence captain Kasule Ibrahim, the tie is not yet over and they will need to be alert to avoid any upsets.

“We are ready for the game and shall need to be alert. We won by two goals and if we are not careful, they can win by three. So we cannot assume we have already won,” Kasule said.

 St. Lawrence edged YMCA 3-2 on aggregate at this stage last season to progress to the semi-finals before eventually finishing in third place.
