Quick Tactical changes in the first half with Ibrahim Orit and Lawrence Tezikya coming in for Emmanuel Obua and Reagan Kalyoowa respectively  didn’t immediately turn the tide, as Cromwell Rwothomio extended NEC’s lead with a skillful flick in the 20th minute giving the home side a 3-1 aggregate lead.

Despite a spirited start to the second half by Bul FC, including substitutions with Amos Kirya replacing Bernard Ogwetti , they couldn’t find the breakthrough they desperately needed. Even with Joel Madondo joining the fray in the 68th minute, replacing striker Aprem, Bul FC couldn’t salvage a result, leaving them disappointed as NEC secured the victory.
