FUFA Women Super League reigning Champions She Corporate had a frustrating evening on Saturday as they began their bid to reclaim the title.

Facing newcomers Makerere University (SHE MAK), the Sharks failed to get the desired three points but rather settled for one.

The game that was preceded by a heavy downpour witnessed the teams drawing 1-1 on a muddy ground.

With the pitch playing to Makerere’s advantage, they frustrated the visitors who could not find an early breakthrough.

The opening goal came at the stroke of halftime when new signing raced ahead of Makerere’s backline before drilling home.

The home side however levelled matters just six minutes into the second stanza coming from Daphine Nalubowa who was making her debut.

The hosts should have taken the lead in the 75th minute when Margaret Namirimu held the ball in the area and a penalty was awarded but goalkeeper Fatuma Matovu was well stationed to save Sharon Namatovu’s attempt from 12 yards.

Action continues on Sunday with three games. Kampala Queens host Asubo Gafford Ladies in Kabojja, Rines SS and Lady Doves are away to Uganda Martyrs High School and Olila High School respectively.
