Uganda Martyrs assistant coach John Saaka says winning two games in a row is a sign that they are still on a mission of winning the FUFA Women Super League title.
Uganda Martyrs defeated new entrants Gafford Ladies 5-3 in the FUFA Women Super League on Saturday at Kanyanya
“Gafford was not an easy team although we had expected to defeat them. Two wins are motivating and we want to keep doing that. That shows we are still on target to win the league title,” stated Saaka.
Gafford is top with six points while Gafford was bottom with no points. Latifah Nakasi scored a brace before Brenda Munyana, Kevin Nakacwa's strikes, and an own goal saw Uganda Martyrs walk away with the day.
Miriam Nakayiwa’s double and another consolation from Irene Nakilyowa couldn’t save Gafford.
Gafford coach Isaac Ogogo was optimistic that his side would improve in the coming games.
“Today’s (Saturday) game we at least managed to score three goals and that’s good and gives hope that we can perform better. Now the emphasis will be on our defense to eliminate the number of goals we concede,” reasoned Ogogo.
Elsewhere, Jauhara Nabaggala and Ashait Naluggwa were on target as UCU Lady Cardinals defeated Rines 2-0 at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium in Wakiso.
At Masindi, Daphine Nalubowa was on target as Makerere University registered a 1-0 win over home side Lady Doves.
