In Kitende, Vipers despite creating numerous chances right from onset failed to find the breakthrough in the opening 45 minutes.

The loss of striker Caesar Manzoki through injury midway the first stanza brought more concerns going into the second half.

However, those concerns were easily washed away upon resumption with the Venoms proving clinical and scoring four goals.

The breakthrough came five minutes into the second half with Mbarara City defender Ronald Otti scoring into his own net.

Milton Karisa who also scored in the first leg doubled Vipers advantage before Yunus Ssentamu also appeared on the score sheet.

The icing on the cake from midfielder Bobosi Byaruhanga who scored three minutes into added time to seal victory for the Venoms who now await the winner between BUL FC and Booma FC in the other semifinal contest.
