The visitors felt the full force of their opponents early when Kinavudori opened the scoreline from the penalty spot.
Millicent Mwanzi scored four goals as UCU Lady Cardinals proved too strong for hapless Rhiness Gafford Ladies FC in the FUFA Women Elite League on Friday.
Moureen Kinavudori netted a hattrick as the hosts ruthlessly brushed aside their opponents at the UCU grounds.
The Cardinals swiftly got back to where they had left following a break from league football, stretching their 100% winning streak to four games.
They had to take a break from the league in order to participate in the university games at Busoga University, and they will have enjoyed a routine return to league action.
Rhiness, who were called to the league because some teams had pulled out, provided no answers to the marauding Cardinals.
The visitors felt the full force of their opponents early when Kinavudori opened the scoreline from the penalty spot after she was bundled in the box five minutes into the game.
Mwanzi then stretched the lead further with three goals under 25 minutes – in the 10th minute, 17th minute and 32nd minute.
Kinavudori added another before the break and replicated her heroics with two other goals in the second half in a comprehensive victory.
A toothless Rhiness side registered no shot on target and appeared to have succumbed to the pressure from their dominant hosts.
The Cardinals have scored 18 goals altogether this season, with all but three shared between top-scorer Mwanzi (eight) and Kinavudori (seven).
They are the leaders of the Elizabeth Group. The other group is Victoria. Kawempe Muslim FC are the reigning champions.
Next, the Cardinals will visit She Corporates while Rhiness will take on Wakiso FC.
UCU head coach Tonny Membe: “The title is now in our hands. My players have to build attack from the back line until it reaches the forward line. Fans have to enjoy however much we love to win. Nevertheless, it was a great win for us.”
Rhiness head coach Kayinda Mustafa: “The game wasn’t hard although we have lost. We play good football and people believe in us. The biggest problem was eight of our first team players did not come back due to late communication but we would have put up a better fight than that. We are focusing on our next game.”
