Bullets defender Emmanuel Zoya put his side on the lead in the 55th minutes through what it can be called a controvercial goal which was protested by Eagles players after linesman Joseph Nyauti raised up his
flag to disallow the goal by considering it as an offside but he quickly changed the decision and put down the flag after noticing that his centre referee Ishmael Chizinga ruled it as a clear goal.
Few minutes after scoring the first goal Bullets came into the game and started exchanging beautiful passes.
Bullets vestile midfielder Mike Mkwate who came in as substitute completely changed the match as he managed to stablise the centre with his skills.
