This was the first game of this year’s FUFA Women Elite League at the FUFA Technical Center Njeru which was meant to kickoff at exactly 9:00am but the kickoff was delayed by one hour due to unavoidable circumstances.

The game started at 10am and 7 minutes into the game Luweero Giants Queens had a chance to score from a direct free-kick but Ruth Kanyinyizi sent the ball wide.

Aisha Namukaaya gave Dynamic SS the lead in the 17th minute with a cool finish off the rebound after goalkeeper Saidah Namwanje had tried to save a strike.

8 minutes later Daphine Nalubowa gave Dynamic SS Jjeza a double lead and it was 2-0 in the 35th minute.

Goals from Aisha Namukwaya and Daphine Nalubowa marked the end of the first half and Dynamic SS Jjeza was in the driving seat at half time with 2 goals to nil.

At the start of second half Luweero Giants Queens made their first substitute with Sarah Tambula replacing Lydia Namuyomba.

Due too much pressure, Shadia Nabukenya was booked in the 51st minute for a foul

In the 65th minute Florence Nakaggwa found a consolation for Luweero Giants Queens to make the score 2-1 just before Teddy Achandi leveling the score 4 minutes later.

The game remained 2-2 until the 79th minute when Sandra Ndagire scored the third to put Luweero Giants Queens into the lead again.

Dynamic SS Jjeza continued searching for an equalizer but all in vain and the final whistle was blown.

Luweero Giants Queens FC managed to get all the 3 points on their first game of the tournament and lead the table of Group A as they wait for the results from the next game between Asubo Gafford Ladies FC and King of Kings WFC.
