St. Lawrence were the most dominant side and should be hoping to carry the same performance into the second leg at Nakawa while the away goal is huge for MUBS to build on.
There is still all to play in this tie given that MUBS will welcome St. Lawrence in the second leg in Nakawa on Tuesday, November 1st.

The winner in this match will face off the winner from the MUBS Vs SLAU at the finals.
