Kawempe Muslim Ladies WFC has returned to the winning ways after
defeating Tooro Queens 2-0 in the Women’s Super League at the FUFA Technical centre
in Njeru on Wednesday.
Before the game, Kawempe had lost 0-1 to Uganda Martyrs on Tuesday
whereas, Tooro queens who were playing their first game in the league defeated
She-Mak with 1-0.
Kawempe’s first goal was scored by Allen Nasazi in the 18th minute
of the game whereas, Sharon Nadunga sealed off their win with a header in the
last minute of added time.
Meanwhile, Tooro suffered a setback when their striker, Resty Kobusingye
was sent off after fouling Kawempe’s Asia Nakibuuka during the second half.
Although both teams seemed to have a balanced ball possession with each one of
them creating viable scoring opportunities, Tooro Queens failed to contain the pressure
from their counterparts who already had a goal to defend.
Tooro’s head coach, Rodgers Ayesiga blames their loss on
failure to convert their chances during the early minutes of the game, which
partly mounted pressure on individual players who ended up committing more
mistakes and hence losing the game.
Ayesiga however says that, with three points to his side in the
two games played so far, he hopes to display a more competitive game against
their counterparts, Kampala Queens on Friday which will increase his chances of
qualifying for the finals.

Cue out…a positive result,
Moses Nkata, the Kawempe head coach says that players suffered
fatigue after playing three consecutive games in three days. He is however pleased
with their ability to win today’s game, as it will help them to play the final
game on Friday without a lot of pressure.

Cue out…of the fatigue,”.
Meanwhile, Kampala queens have scored 1-0 against Uganda Martyrs. Their
goal was scored by Lukia Namubiru in the 88th minute of the game.
Kampala Queens captain, Fauzia Najjemba says that, after losing
0-4 to Kawempe Muslim Ladies on Monday, today’s win has improved their chances
of qualifying for the semi-finals.
Fridah Ayerango, the Uganda Martyrs assistant coach whose team has
won so far two games in the league says that the girls take long to score due
to their slow pace in the striking line but, they will use tomorrow’s break to
rectify such mistakes ahead of their final game.
