The Venoms secured a 2-1 win on Wednesday in the game played at Kakyeka Stadium.

Paul Mucureezi who formerly featured for the Ankole Lions opened the scores before Milton Karisa doubled the advantage at the stroke of halftime.

Milton Karisa scored the second goal for Vipers SC.

The home side however pulled one back through Seri Arugamaho inside the final ten minutes to give Mbarara City hope ahead of the return leg next week at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

It should be noted that BUL FC earned a comprehensive result in the other semifinal contest, winning 5-1 against Booma FC in Masindi.

The winners on aggregate from the two semifinal contests will advance to the final.

Should Viper SC and BUL maintain their lead after the return leg, this will mean a repeat of last season’s final.
