On the other hand, order Kawempe edged past resilient Olila women 2-0 with reigning Fufa footballer Hasifa Nassuna bagging a brace.
UCU will however have to deal with the fitness levels of goalkeeper Cissy Nakigumba who limped off in the game against Uganda Martyrs and will be subjected to a late fitness test to ascertain whether he can play.
Olila and Uganda Martyrs will battle for the third place before the final.
