Their efforts soon paid off when Nazar Benjamin found the net in the 57th minute giving MUBS an early lead in the second half.
SLAU instantly reacted to the goal, winning dwells and dominating the play before scoring 10 minutes later through hitman, Bruno Bunyaga.
Having levelled matters SLAU continued with their dominance as MUBS struggled for a grip.
Attempts from goal poacher Bruno Bunyaga were tipped wide by phenomenal SLAU goal keeper but Kayongo Micheal found penetration netting the winner for SLAU.
The 2-1 win gives SLAU an advantage going into the second leg on 1st November in Nakawa.
