Saturday February 26th
She Corporates 2-1 Lady Doves
Olila HS 1-0 She Maroons

She Corporates came from a goal down to overcome Lady Doves in a FUA Wome Super League game held at Mubs Arena on Saturday.

Substitute Ronah Regina Nantege and Phionah Nabbumba scored the two goals as the Sharks bagged all the three points on the day.

Fazila Ikwaput had earlier on put the Visitors scoring from a free kick before half time but her goal wasn’t enough.

Playing at home, She Corporates dominated straight away but failed to break a well organised Lady Doves defence.

And it was the Visitors who scored first in the 15th minute through Ikwaput, who scored from a direct free kick at the edge of the box.

Before the break, the hosts also had two good chances to score but Grace Nassango missed with just a keeper to beat before Swabula Nkomba saw her header saved for a corner.

At the restart of the second half, She Corporates returned back a more rejuvenated side and they could have pulled one back but Nabbumba’s long range effort hit the cross only to be save by goalkeeper Agatha Agnes.

Finally in the 49th minute, off the bench Nantege levelled matters tapping in home off a well delivered pass from Favour Nambatya.

There on, despite their dorminance She Corporates had to wait till the 75th minute when Nabbumba made it two, scoring from a direct free kick after Nambatya was fouled at the edge of the box.

In the closing stages, their was nothing much to right home about as the Corporates maintained their lead to walk away with all the three points on the day.

Victory ensured that She Corporates registered their third win of the season and moved to the top with 10 points after four games played.

For Lady Doves, their woes continue as they suffer their third straight loss of the season and they remain rock bottom with just a single.

What Next – She Corporates will be away to UCU Lady Cardinals on Saturday 5th March while Lady Doves welcome Olila High School on Monday 7th.
