The Nile Special Uganda Cup quarter-final stage produced upsets to both fans and officials at the different venues where the games were held.

At the Graveyard ground in Makerere, the Life Guard Rams humiliated their landlord Makerere Impis with a 19-11 defeat. Rams under the stewardship of coach Richard Lumu will now face the Plascon Mongers who beat Kitante Eagles 22-9 in Kitante.

Lumu told USPA media that he will prepare the team for a good competition in the semi-finals.

Rams ended all the arrogance of their hosts and brought them down.

“Our challenge is the potchers who take our players every end of the season, but we shall keep grooming more and my focus is to give our fans a good game in the semi-final,” Lumu said.

Still in Makerere, the Platinum Heathens snatched a last-minute play win from Jinja Hippos with a try by Shadon Bongomin and a conversion by Malcom Okello.

At Legends Rugby Club, the hosts KCB Kobs, sunk the Stanbic Black Pirates Pirates with a 16-13 win. The Sea Robbers leading the game at 13-9 were very unlucky when their former skipper Ivan Magomu kicked the ball into Josaih Sempeke who sprinted to score the winning try and later added a conversion to seal victory.

The win ended The KPA, Bweyogerere-based side’s hopes of winning the Uganda Cup to add it the League and Rugby7s silverware won last season.
