None of the teams managed to get a goal by the end of the first half despite attempts by Express’s midfielder Godfrey Lwesibawa and forward Martin Kiiza. 

However, Kiiza managed to put Express FC in the lead within the first two minutes of the second half before it Henry Kitegenyi cancelled the lead with an equalizer in the 72nd minute with a header from a corner.
