Viper’s 3-1 victory at the Nakivubo stadium final also brought and end to their Uganda Cup finals jinx that had seen them lose at the last stage on two previous occasions.

Goals from Wangi (2) and Erisa Ssekisambu ensured the victory, in a game where Gaddafi Wahabu had momentarily put Onduparaka back in competition with the game 2-1 at halftime.
