King of Kings WFC are the first team to seal a slot into the knockout stage of the 2020/21 FUFA Women Elite League after overcoming Luweero Giant Queens on Sunday.
The newcomers ensured they registered their second win in as many games with a 2-0 win over fellow debutants Luweero Giant Queens FC.
14-year old forward Sharon Kanyiginya was the difference in the game with her brace settling the contest that had few scoring opportunities.
Kanyiginya opened the scores in the 26th minute her cross from the left wing ricocheting off the goal post before finding its way to the back of the net.
The teenager sealed victory at the death of the clock (90th minute) when she ran through on goal and sent a low drive past goalkeeper Saidah Namwanje.
The result meant King of Kings progressed through on six points, Luweero Giants FC remained second on three points while Dynamic SS Jjeza WFC and Asubo Gafford Ladies have one point apiece.
Action will resume on Tuesday with King of Kings playing Dynamic SS Jjeza while Asubo Gafford Ladies will play Luweero Giant Queens.
It should be noted that the top two teams from each of the four groups qualify for the knockout phase to determine the Champion.
The top three teams at the end of the season qualify to play in the FUFA Women Super League.
