UCU Lady Cardinals are the 2018 FUFA Women’s Cup Champions

After their hopes winning the FUFA Women Elite League being cut before the final playoffs, UCU Lady cardinals efforts in Women  Football have been finally rewarded. They are the new champions of the FUFA Women’s Cup previously held by Olira Women.

To earn their first ever silverware in the name of Uganda’s women fooftball, Uganda Christian University (UCU) Lady Cardinals beat She  Corporates by 2 – 0 in the finals that were played at Kabwohe play ground in Sheema district on Saturday.

As usual, their main (woman) Mercy Nabulobi shot for UCU Lady Cardinals ahead in the 52nd minute after the opening half had failed to  bear any goal fruit before Nasuuna finished off Jackie Nakasi’s well set ball passed the She Corporates goalkeeper Fatumah Matovu to seal
their victory in just 8 minutes to full time.

It should be remembered that UCU signed big names in the previous transfers including Hasifah Nasuuna – the Crested Cranes Capatain,  Ruth Aturo, Yudaya Nakayenze among others and it would have been an unfair for them to end the football season without any  silverware.

UCU Lady Cardinals, the winners walked away with 3M shillings, runners up (She Corporates) with 2m while the semi-finalists (Olila  Women and Muteesa Royals) 1m each.
