Uganda Martyrs High School got their FUFA Women Elite League 2021 season off to a flyer as they beat Makerere University WFC 1-0 on Monday.

The two teams kick-off this campaign’s action with a group 1 contest at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru.

In a closely contested affair, Uganda Martyrs earned victory thanks to Kevin Nakacwa’s goal from the spot in the second half.

Nakacwa dispatched the penalty in the 70th minute after Anita Namata was brought down in the area by Stella Namisango.

Uganda Martyrs started on the front foot making several inroads but they lacked effectiveness in the final third and most of their efforts were foiled by a resilient Makerere University backline.

Latifa Nakasi who was the top scorer last season with six goals had her effort sail over the goal area.

Catherine Nagadya and Spencer Nakacwa too came close but failed to find the target.

For Makerere University, they grew in confidence and had attempts at goal through Rebecca Nakasaato and Jemima Twesigye.

Uganda Martyrs High School will return to action on Tuesday against Kawempe Muslim Ladies while Makerere University will face Tooro Queens on the same day.
