Three-time defending champions Kawempe Muslim and Olila High School will face off in the playoff finals of the 2017-18 FUFA Women Elite League.

This is after the school sides knocked out their opponents on Thursday at the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.

In first match, Kawempe Muslim beat Kampala Queens 5-4 via a shootout after normal time ended one goal apiece. Queens took a surprise lead through Lillian Akello in the 69th minute but Kawempe quickly responded through Tracy Jones Akiror three minutes later.

In the tense shoot out, Akiror, Aisha Nantongo, Juliet Nalukenge, Grace Aluka and Brenda Nakayenga converted for Kawempe. Aisha Namukisa, Damali Matama, Gladys Nakito and Zaina Namuleme scored for Kampala Queens but Winnie Babirye missed her kick.
