Kampala Queens have by far been the best team in the FUFA Women Super League this season and their firm grip at the top tells it all.
The Queens of Soccer who have led the league from the start ensured they ended the first round on a high with victory at Rines.
Whereas the performance was not convincing, Margaret Kunihira’s 8th minute goal was enough to help Kampala Queens secure maximum points.
Victory meant they finish the first round perfect with 27 points from nine games.
Uganda Martyrs could be 8 points behind the leaders but that has not stopped them from putting up a fight.
The Kiddawalime Girls were 3-1 winners against eternal rivals Kawempe Muslim on Saturday thanks to goals from Latifah Nakasi, Brenda Munyana and substitute Sumaya Nalumu.
Shakira Nyinagahirwa got the consolation for Kawempe in what was their first loss at home this season.
Elsewhere, Lady Doves edged UCU Lady Cardinals 2-1 in Masindi.
Dorcus Kwikiriza and Olivia Babirye were on the score sheet for the 2021 Champions while Sharon Naddunga the consolation for the University side.
In Soroti, Olila High School ended the first round with a 3-1 victory over visiting Makerere University.
Sharon Apio, Dorcus Lwalisa and Cicilia Apiding scored a goal each for the hosts while Daphine Nalubowa scored for Makerere University.
She Corporate returned to winning ways with a 3-1 win over bottom placed Asubo Gafford Ladies.
Madinah Nakaayi’s goal for Gafford was not enough to stop the Sharks who got their goals through Phiona Nabbumba, Joan Ainembabazi and Cissy Nakate.
The second round is expected to start on 6th February 2023.
