2018 FUFA Women’s Cup:
- UCU Lady Cardinals 2-0 She Corporate
Uganda Christian University (UCU) Lady Cardinals earned their first ever silverware in women’s football when they clinched the 2018 FUFA Women’s Cup.
A 2-0 win against She Corporate inspired the Mukono based club to the much needed victory at the Kabwohe play ground in Sheema district on Saturday.
Mercy Nabulobi shot UCU Lady Cardinals ahead in the 52nd minute after the opening half had failed to bear any goal fruit.
Nabulobi was spot on with a well taken free-kick on the left over 30 yards away past goalkeeper Fatumah Matovu.
Nassuna put the game to bed in the 83rd minute when she finished off Jackie Nakasi’s well set ball on the edge of the goal area for the second and winning goal to cap the icing on the already baked cake and spark wild celebrations.
She Corporate came closer but Alice Kalimba and Dorothy Nakato did not carry their scoring boots on the evening.
