She Corporate needed to show resilience and character to overcome hard-fighting Olila High School as group 2 of the FUFA Women Super League started playing on Monday at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

The forward netted in the 40th minute with her long range strike beating goalkeeper Eglas Ajumo before finding the back of the net.

She had found the back of the net in the 24th minute but her goal was cancelled and ruled for offside.

On the other hand, goalkeeper Vanessa Karungi pulled off a fine save to deny Grace Aluka who attempted to shoot from outside the area.

Siporosa Amoding too got another opportunity to opened the level matter shortly before the break but she failed to find the target.

Action resumes on Tuesday with Olila High School taking on Lady Doves while She Corporate will be up against UCU Lady Cardinals.

Olila returned recharged upon restart but still lacked composure in the final third.

She Corporate were forced to make a substitution when Wilmer Nantumbwe was stretchered off in the 75th minute and her place was taken by Cissy Nantongo.

Winnie Nabbale and Janat Thungu also came on for She Corporate replacing Susan Atim and Rhonah Nantege respectively.

Thungu nearly stretched the lead for The Sharks with 2 minutes to play but goalkeeper Eglas Ajumo made a finger-tip save to deny her.

She Corporate will return to action on Tuesday against UCU Lady Cardinals while Olila High School will face Lady Doves.
