KCCA FC beat Maroons FC 3-0 on Wednesday to reach the Uganda Cup last 8 5-0 on aggregate.
The Kasasiros who had won the first leg 2-0 at Luzira were rampant from the very start and never looked like a side that would let Maroons back in the tie.
Sadat Anaku handed Morley Byekwaso’s side the lead inside six minutes, calmly slotting past Eric Daira in the Maroons goals.
Steven Sserwadda made it 2-0 on 32 minutes, poking in from close range after he was stepped up by Samson Kigozi.
The third came late in the contest through substitute Juma Balinya who replaced Anaku just after the break.
With the league title as good as lost, KCCA remain on course to winning something this campaign as they march into the Uganda Cup quarter-finals.
At Bugembe, BUL FC took care of Kigezi Home Boyz 2-1 in the first leg of their tie.
Richard Wandyaka was on hand to open the scoring inside 5 minutes and put BIL into the lead.
Musa Esenu increased the hosts advantage on 22 minutes to put them 2-0 up.
Denis Lubowa then pulled one back for the visitors, dispatching a penalty on to ensure Kigezi stays in the tie.
BUL could have increased on their advantage but Robert Mukongotya’s free kick went agonizingly wide.
The two sides will meet again in the second leg at the Kabale Municipal Stadium.
At Kavumba, Police FC progressed to the quarter-finals despite losing 1-0 away to Bright Stars FC.
James Angu scored the only goal of the contest, netting in the 79th minute of the contest.
Police could have earlier taken the lead but Tony Mawejje’s goal bound effort was saved by Simon Tamale before Duncan Sseninde’s free kick that rattled the up-right.
Uganda Cup action continues on Thursday with Proline, who lead 2-1 from the first leg, taking on Mbale Heroes FC.
