Booma FC is the first team to book a slot into the semifinals of this year’s Stanbic Uganda Cup after overcoming Maroons FC on Saturday.

The Kitara Regional League entity extended their Cinderella story and fairytale run in the knockout tournament, defeating visiting Maroons.

In the game played at Masindi Municipal Stadium on Saturday, Booma secured a 2-1 win to edge the Prison Warders and thus advance to the semifinals.

Ali Ashraf broke the deadlock in the 43rd minute to give the home side a lead at the break.

The visitors made several attempts in the second stanza and eventually found the equalizer through Fred Amaku eight minutes from time.

Their hopes of an attempted comeback were however extinguished when Booma regained their lead towards the very end of the game.

Denis Omedi found the match winner in the 88th minute to send the home fans into a frenzy and eventually help the team sail through.

The result means Booma FC progress to the semifinals, their best performance in the competition.

Action in the Stanbic Uganda Cup will continue on Sunday, 24th April 2022 with Wakiso Giants FC hosting holders Vipers SC at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium.

The other quarterfinal fixtures involving SC Villa vs BUL FC and Mbarara City FC vs Mbale Heroes FC will be played in the subsequent days.
