FUFA Women’s Cup: Holders Makerere, non league side St. Noa make quarterfinal grade

St. Noa Girls SS defied odds to reach the quarterfinals of this year’s FUFA Women’s Cup.

The non-league entity stunned FUFA Women Super League side and 2019 FUFA Women’s Cup finalists Lady Doves on Saturday at African Bible University.

Under the stewardship of former Uganda Cranes defender Jimmy Mukubya, St. Noa remain the only team outside the top three divisions in the competition.

Sylvia Kabene and Miriam Ayo scored a brace each to guide St. Noa to victory in a seven-goal thriller.

Norah Alupo (brace) and Olivia Babirye scored for the Masindi based side in a losing effort.

St. Noa will therefore face Asubo Gafford Ladies in the quarterfinals. The latter dumped out GYCO Girls thanks to a 3-0 win in Gulu City.

Madinah Nakaayi, Irene Nakalyowa and Zaitun Namaganda all got onto the score sheet for Asubo Gafford Ladies.

Holders Makerere University made light work of Isra Soccer Academy to make the quarterfinal cut.

Husna Mpanja, Rebecca Nakasaato and Daphine Nalubowa scored a goal each for the University team.

The win at this stage sets up a quarterfinal clash with Uganda Martyrs who ejected Fort Portal’s She Geme on Sunday.

Latifah Nakasi and Rebecca Nandhego were on target for Uganda Martyrs in the 2-0 victory.

Elsewhere, Olila High School emerged winners over She Corporate. Normal time ended in a goalless draw but the Soroti based side won the tense penalty shootout 4-3.

Olila who won the inaugural edition in 2017 will therefore face She Maroons who equally advanced past Rines SS on penalties (5-4) after normal time had ended in a two-all draw.

Kampala Queens were the biggest winners at the round of 16 stage, obliterating Tooro Queens 6-2 on Saturday.

Sophia Nakiyingi and Hasifah Nassuna struck a brace apiece. Joan Nabirye too got onto the score sheet before an own goal by Tooro Queens captain Cissy Kabarwani.

The consolation goals for Tooro Queens came from Sharon Kanyiginya and Everyln Katusiime.

Kampala Queens who are seeking to win a domestic double will have Kawempe Muslim as their next hurdle in the Cup competition.

Kawempe Muslim needed a brace from second half substitute Allen Nassazi to stage a comeback over UCU Lady Cardinals.

The 2018 winners had gotten into the lead in the 17th minute through former Kawempe forward Sharon Naddunga.

UCU Lady Cardinals goalkeeper Hadijah Nalongo saved two penalties in the second half but Nassazi would eventually beat her to send Kawempe through.
