Fufa Women Elite league
Kampala Queens 1-2 Muteesa I Royal University

Muteesa 1 Royal University had a perfect start to the season after nicking a hard fought win against Kampala Queens in the game played on Sunday at Uganda Martyr’s High school, this Rubaga.

A goal in either half from forward Sharon Namatovu and midfielder Cissy Nakalawa ensured the university side earned all three points despite Kampala Queens pulling one back through Matama Damali.

In a game of two halves, rx Muteesa began the better side with the trio of Betty Namataka, Barbara Nakyanzi and Sharon Namatovu wreaking havoc to the host’s defence.

The visitors almost took the lead 18 minutes after kickoff but Namataka’s attempted lobe over goalkeeper, Lydia Adimango sailed a few inches above the goal.

It was Sharon Namatovu who broke the deadlock at the half hour mark when she picked on a loose ball after a miscommunication between Queen’s defenders Namukisa Risha and Nalwela Miracle Grace to fire the visitors ahead.

The university side skipper had a chance to double the lead two minutes to halftime but her shot at the edge of the box went off target.

It was a different ball game after interval with hosts pushing for the leveller but always lacked the cutting edge in the final third.

New recruit Hadijjah Nampijja from Buikwe She Red stars won a penalty for the home side deep into added time which Matama stepped up to convert for the Queen’s consolation.

The result means Muteesa 1 move to second spot in the Elizabeth group on three points same as leaders Kawempe Muslim.
