On the eve of the Gafford-Kawempe Muslim match, head coach Henry Barungi revealed that his players had a special plan to contain leading scorer Sandra Nabweteme.
In Saturday’s game, Fatumah ‘Kamunye’ Luwedde did the damage as she netted the game’s solitary goal late in the second half to end Kawempe’s 5 match unbeaten run.
The result also meant that Kawempe conceded their first goal of the season.
Having signed new players and also improved on their technical bench with tactics after the FIFA Women coaching course at the FUFA Technical centre, there are signs that many teams will be a hard nut crack.
In the first round, when the two teams met, Kawempe trounced Gafford 5-0 with Sandra Nabweteme (14 goals this season) netting a hat trick.
All eyes were on Nabweteme after her school had just won the National schools girls football championship in Mbarara. She scored 37 goals.
