In the closing minutes before the halftime whistle, Uganda Martyrs WFC was back in the lead courtesy of Namata Anita assisted by Nakacwa Spencer. 

Second half started in high gear as Tooro queens were looking for an equalizer, fresh legs were introduced where Babirye replaced Afoyo Maureen in the 57th minute, and the other side Nakasi came in the 61st minute. 

Tooro queens continued hunting for an equalizer but Nyakato Ruth missed a sitter which could have leveled the game in the 90th minute before she was replaced by Kasemire Imelda two minutes later.

The referee blew the final whistle and the game ended 2 : 1 in favor of Uganda Martyrs Lubaga WFC.
