Kawempe Muslim could be dominant in the Fufa women’s league but their performance at the ongoing East Africa Secondary School games has been disappointing so far.
After earning two points in their opening two games, Kawempe Muslim find themselves in a very tricky condition.
Playing in group A, Kawempe occupy third place and need victory against Rwanda’s G.S Remera-Rukoma on Tuesday. Remera are the defending champions of the tournament.
Remera equally need a positive result to guarantee their chances after losing 1-0 to Alliance from Tanzania in their second game.
They had started with a win against Burundi’s L.T Saint Basile.
Group A standings
Alliance – 4 points
Remera -3 points
Kawempe -2 points
Striker Juliet Nalukenge is aware of the task ahead and indicated they need to pull up their socks in the final group game.
“Today’s game will be like a final. We shall need to use extra effort but we are still confident despite the results not coming in our favour in the first two games,” she told ChimpReports.
In group B, two Ugandan sides still haven’t confirmed their places into the last eight.
These include Uganda Martyrs High School Rubaga and Gaddafi Integrated.
Uganda Martyrs lost 3-1 to Kenya’s Wiyeta while Gadaffi earned a hard-fought 2-1 victory against G.S Kabusunzu from Rwanda.
Wiyeta and Kabusunzu lead group B with 4 points apiece while Uganda Martyrs and Gaddafi are on three points.
Gadaffi take on Wiyeta while Martyrs play Kabusunzu in their final group games on Tuesday.
National champions Mukono High sealed their berth in the quarterfinal with a 4-0 victory against South Sudan’s Kapoeta on Monday.
They had earlier on won 1-0 against E.S Mutunda and now lead group C on six points.
Mukono will climax the group fixtures with a game against Ibinzo Girls School from Kenya.
