On sunday, they looked brilliant from the first whistle and it wasn’t a surprise when they got scored first in the 12th minute through Nabulime to set the tone.

But the hosts, Kampala Queens, levelled matters before the break through defender Lukia in the 34th minute.

At the restart of the second stanza, Kawempe Muslim restored their lead through Nabukenya in the 51st minute.

And Nyanagahirwa scored the third in the 65th minute before Nassazi added the fourth eight minutes later.

With ten minutes to play, Nantongo put the icing on the sugar with the fifth goal and the last nail in Kampala Queens coffin.

Victory ensured that Ayub Khalifa’s charges reached the semi finals of the ongoing FUFA Women cup. They will now face off with Uganda Martyrs, who beat She Makerere 2-1 on Sunday to reach this far.

Elsewhere, Asubo Gafford needed shootouts to beat St. Noa Girls 4-3 on penalties and they will face off with She Maroons in the other semi final of this competition.

Its strong to note that the FUFA Women Cup is similar to the Men’s version of the FUFA Stanbic Uganda Cup.
