Kampala region wins MTN Inter-Regional Cup

Kampala region wins MTN Inter-Regional Cup

Kampala region yesterday retained the MTN Inter-regions trophy after beating Eastern through a controversial lone goal scored by Richard Kigozi deep in the injury time of extra time.

The Eastern Region bench headed by Charles Namakoola and Amin Bbosa vehemently protested the goal, which they said had been scored from an offside position.

Referee, Ssali Masudi, who was also named the best referee of the tournament amidst booing by the mammoth crowd that cheered the Eastern team, had to get police protection immediately after blowing the final whistle. The visibly incensed crowd were baying for his blood.

Eastern officials and fans were particularly bitter with Masudi for denying their team what appeared a penalty when striker Milton Kalisa was brought down in the box in the 89th minute. Had he awarded it, the trophy would have most certainly remained in their region.

Mohammed Faisal, one of the Eastern officials, claimed he had been enraged by Masudi from the onset.

"How can such a man be given a Fifa badge when he cannot fairly handle a domestic game like this one," Faisal said.

The Eastern official continously remonstrated against Masudi's decisions almost throught the entire match.

Dalmus Oyuki, a retired referee from Tororo,said it was not fair for the organizers to assign a referee from Kampala to handle a game involving Kampala, more so a final match.




Despite missing the trophy, the Eastern side however, scooped three individual awards with 17-year old Kalisa voted the best player of the tournament.
