FT: Kataka SHE 4-2 Town View SS WFC
Venue: FUFA Technical Center, Njeru
Kataka SHE reclaimed hope of progressing from Group B with an emphatic win over Town View SS on Sunday at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.
In an exciting encounter, Kataka SHE FC came out top, winning 4-2.
The opening half ended 2-2, but the diminutive forward Esther Namataka was the difference in the second half, scoring a brace to guide Kataka SHE to victory.
Both Kataka SHE and Town View SS came into Sunday’s clash on the bank of losses in their opening games and needed to return to the rails.
It was Kataka SHE who drew first blood in the 10th minute through right back Catherine Namataka whose well taken drive went into the back of the net, beating goalkeeper Rose Bamaniriza who had moved off her line.
The lead was however short-lived with Town View SS levelling matters four minutes later thanks to a well taken free kick by Saluwa Nakaima.
Poor goalkeeping by Bamaniriza once again cost Town View SS when the shot stopper failed to time well Shakira Nandudu’s delivery from a free kick and the ball bounced off the ground before going to the back of the net.
Three minutes from the mandatory break, Elizabeth Anyango completed off a well worked goal when Dorcus Kwikiriza teed her up inside the area.
The second half was literally about Namataka who beat Town View SS defence for pace on two occasions to guide Kataka SHE to victory.
The two teams will return to action on Tuesday with SHE Kataka playing against Rines SS WFC while Bunyaruguru will take on Town View SS.
