Asubo Gafford Ladies FC secured a much needed a 1-0 victory over Kawempe Muslim to stave off relegation in the FUFA Women Elite League.

Skipper Shakira Mutibwa struck the winning goal and the victory saw Gafford move to 17 points, one point above the relegation zone as the regular season in the Victoria Group came to an end.

Elsewhere, Ajax Queens beat She Corporates 2-0 courtesy of goals from Annet Namwenge and Margret Nalubega as they also finished the season with 17 points but had a superior goal difference compared to Gafford.

Rines SS and Dynamic were two sides relegated from the group while Kawempe Muslim and Lady Doves qualified for the playoffs.

There was also a moment of silence observed in memory of UCU Lady Cardinals coach Peter Ssebulime who passed away and was laid to rest on Sunday.

In the Elizabeth Group, leaders Kampala Queens cemented their playoffs spot after beating Lango 3-1.

They will be joined either UCU or Olila after both sides faceoff on Wednesday. Lango and Town View were the two sides relegated from the group.
