Kobs seemed hungry to overturn the 15-17 first round loss at home and extend the gap in the title race which ended in vain. The two teams were tied at 12 points until the referee Ronald Wutimba penalty decision to Heathens towards the crunch time which the Kampala Old Boys side protested and later players left the pitch.

We came ,we took good account of ourselves, we played hard and eventually we won”~ Athiyo Nyango ( Heathens, Head Coach) after being asked if this the manner in which he would have loved to walk away with those points during the post-match interview.
