FT: Ajax Queens 2-3 Amuria High School WFC
Venue: FUFA Technical Centre Njeru 

Group C kicked off their games today morning with Ajax Queens taking on Amuria High School WFC.

Amuria High School made a perfect start after overcoming Ajax Queens in the game played today morning at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

Their great performance saw them edge past Ajax Queens 3-2 with the winning goal coming two minutes to full time.

Despite wasting several chances Rehemah Akurut of Amuria High School WFC broke a deadlock with one minute to halftime with a cool finish past goal-keeper Pamela Nakayondo  to give her team a lead in the 44th minute.

Rehemah Akurut’s goal was the difference between the two teams at half time after goalkeeper Pamela Nakayondo saved Ajax Queens on numerous occasions.

Amuria High School started from where they ended in the first half with the second goal coming just two minutes into the second half through their Captain Emmanuel Akoel.

In the 51st minute Ajax Queens pulled one goal back through Anet Namwenge with a well carried free-kick before Maureen Nangozi’s 63rd minute cool finish from outside the box to level the score.

The game was level until the 88th minute when Emmanuela Akoel tapped home for the winning goal to secure their first win.
