Lukia Namubiru notched six goals as Ajax Queens thrashed Mpatta Women Elite 13-1 as the National Women Beach Soccer League season kicked off at Lido Beach on Sunday.

Stella Namisango and Zuilaika Najjuma added a hat-trick and brace each while Dorah Nalukanga and Daphine Nabachwa’s own goal ensured the victory. Sharon Achwero scored a consolation for Mpatta.

Ajax Queens who were one of the top contenders last season lost momentum in the last games of the league last season handing Muteesa 1 Royal University the opportunity to retain the trophy.

The University side that has dominated the league for the past seasons will be looking for their fourth consecutive title despite not playing at the weekend.

They will be hoping to replicate the performances that have seen them win three titles in a row.

But it could be a big ask for Muteesa this season since Alphoenix, KJT Ladies and Ajax Queens among others are also itching to win the title.

Elsewhere, Nkumba defeated Talented 8-2 in the other league match played over the weekend. Rashida Nankya and Judith Sanyu each scored a hattrick before Dorcas Nabuufu added a brace. An own goal from Mercy Namyalo sealed the victory for Nkumba. Namyalo and Josephine Asara each had a goal for Talented. 

This year’s league is being played at three different venues; Mutoola Resort Beach, Lido Beach, and Spennah Beach.

The women league has generated a lot of competition since 2012 with the women’s game also developing at a high speed.
