FUFA Women Cup
UCU Lady Cardinals 2 Olila 1
Muteesa v She Corporate
MUKONO - UCU Lady Cardinals brightened their chances of winning A silverware this season after they defeated defending champions Olila 2-1 in the semifinal of the FUFA Women Cup match played Wednesday evening in Mukono.
This was sweet revenge for UCU who lost to Olila (2-1 in penalties after 2-2 draw) at the same stage last season.
Captain Maureen Kinavudori notched a double for the Lady Cardinals to make it to the final while Norah Alupo scored a consolation for Olila.
In the second semifinal, Muteesa Royal will play She Corporates on Thursday at Mutesa II Stadium Wankulukuku.
The Women Cup is a knock out competition that is played by all the FUFA Women Elite League clubs plus other teams across the countries that are interested to take part.
The Knockout competition gives women footballers more competition and in the long run help in the growth of the game. Olila Women FC won the inaugural edition last year at Madibira grounds in Busia defeating Gafford Ladies in the final.
This year's final will be held June 23 in Bushenyi District.
