Millicent Namwembe was in for a brace 26 minutes into the game to make it 3-0 for the Prison Warders.

In the 30 minute SHE Maroons goal-keeper Esther Akujo failed to clear the ball away which gave Shilla Amadit a chance to pull one back for Echoes WFC to take the score to 3-1 until the half time break.
