Hosts Acholi smiled to a 1-0 win over the reigning champions Buganda in group B of The FUFA Drum quarter finals at the Pece War Memorial Stadium on Sunday.

The penalty was awarded by referee Ronald Madanda following a foul in the goal area on Isaac Otto by Ronald Ssekiganda.

Acholi endured a tense climax to hold onto the lead and register maximum points on the evening that take them to three points in group B, same as Bukedi who overcame Tooro in the earlier game on Sunday.
