FUFA WSL: Namiro takes She MAK past Wakiso Hill


Makerere University Women Football Club, She MAK edged first time league entrants Wakiso Hill at the St Mary’s stadium in Kitende on Sunday.

She MAK beat Wakiso Hill 1-0 and the game’s only goal was scored in the 58th minute by forward Noeline Namiro.

With both teams having played each other in the second division (FUFA Women Elite League) before, this was a game of small margins.

Having kicked off the game on leveled ground, both teams looked like they had come with the same strategy but since it was day one the Visitors were more cautious with an aim of catching the home side on the break.

Unfortunately, with 36 minutes played on the clock, the home side was forced into a first half substitution bringing on exciting youngster Patricia Nayiga in place of the injured Left back Phoebe Banura.

With game still in balance, Makerere clearly looked better physically and in attack with Jemimah Twesigye posing the most threat but all zero out to nothing closing the opening half goal-less.

In the second half, She Makerere got their long awaited goal through former She Corporate forward Noeline Namiro just 13 minutes after the restart.

However three minutes later, She MAK Captain Josephine Ndagire brought down Farida Namirimu in the area but the referee waved off the action only to lift all the Wakiso Hill technical bench on their feet.

In the last minute, Rashida Nankya striked a good ball at goal to draw the game level but the Makerere shot stopper, Zahara Nankya was active on the day brilliantly saving it to take home all the three points.

She Maroons destroy Asubo Gafford Ladies.

At the Kampala Quality Stadium, a Lillian Kasuubo hatrick and Millicent Namwembe double helped Women Super League returnee She Maroons go past the Asubo Gafford Ladies with a 5-0 score line.

 Kasuubo opened the scoring 8 minutes into the first half adding the second a minute to the end of the half only to go to the break with a comfortable two goal advantage.

In the second stanza, Namwembe scored two minutes after the restart only for Kasuubo to complete her hatrick nine minutes later but Namwembe sealed off the win as early as the 61st minute.

Kawempe fetch three points away from home.

It was a five goal thriller as it rained goals in Wakiso when Rines SS welcomed Kawempe Muslim with the game ending 2-3 in favor of the visitors.

Wujja Catherine and Yasmeen Nalukwago scored the only two goals for Rines SS while Hadijah Babirye, Agnes Nabukenya and Phiona Nabuliime did the job for the Kawempe side.

On Saturday, Uganda Christian University Cardinals played out a goalless draw with resilient Masindi side Lady Doves at the UCU grounds, Mukono.
