BUL FC has qualified for their first-ever CAF Confederations Cup after defeating Vipers SC 3-1 in the Uganda Cup final played at King George Memorial Stadium in Masindi on Sunday.

Karim Ndugwa bagged a brace when he netted in the 27th and 52nd minutes while Simon Peter Oketch scored BUL’s other goal in the 41st minute.

Vipers’ consolation goal was scored by their captain Halid Lwaliwa in the 70th minute.

It was also the first time that the Oil Manufacturers were winning a trophy in their 15 years of existence.

BUL’s victory on Sunday meant that they avenged the 8-1 humiliation against Vipers in last year’s final. In doing so, BUL has denied Vipers their first-ever domestic double.

Having won the 2021/22 Uganda Premier League, Vipers were on course to joining SC Villa, Express FC, and KCCA FC as the teams that have ever won a domestic double but BUL had other thoughts.

As Vipers will be representing Uganda in the CAF Champions League in the 2022/23 season, on the other hand, BUL will be playing in the CAF Confederation Cup on behalf of the Pearl of Africa.

Meanwhile, Ndugwa’s brace meant that he finished as the top scorer of the 48th edition of the Uganda Cup with nine goals.
