Girls football action. The sport has continued to spread wings over the years

Women football continues to get the deserved meteoric rise and respect in Uganda.

Already in place is the FUFA Women Elite league, the famous Mamma Becca Memorial tournament, the inaugural FA knock out tournament as well as the respective schools competitions (UMEA and national schools championships).

Add to the Wakiso District regional league, the game of football among the feminine gender is on a promising note.

From the basis of match day two of this league played at Bugema University, goals are something to cheer about.

Light College Katikamu Katikamu remains the only unbeaten side thus far.

They won convincingly 5-0 against God Cares High School and 1-0 over Light Secondary and Vocational Bulenga.

Steven Kintu’s coached Taggy High posted arguably the biggest scoreline so far in all the games played.

A 6-0 result over Light Secondary and Vocational Bulenga before a 4-0 win against hosts Bugema University gave Taggy the cutting edge.

Halima Kanyago scored four times for Taggy in the game against Light Secondary and Vocational. Zaitun Namaganda and Catherine Naggadya were the other players on target.
Tracy Nakiguli and Regina Lwetuso were also on fine goal scoring form for Light College Katikamu and Light Secondary respectively.

In the other result of the day played, God Cares High School edged Bugema University 2-0.

Kintu attests there is room for improvement for even better performances;

I am so far impressed by the performance of the players from my team. I know, we can even better this display

One of the league organizers, Hamidu Kasozi appreciates the different stake holders who have witnessed the Buganda regional league grow through leaps and bounds.

From the team managers, players, match officials (referees), fans and the media, Kasozi, a keen women football advocate pays a glowing tribute.

I want to thank all the fans, team managers, coaches, administrators, match officials, the media and everyone who has been present for these for these future talented female players.

Without any of them, there would not be any success scored

Only one club shall be promoted to the FUFA Women Elite league.

The league will take a two week’s break to allow schools preparing for the national girls’ football championship slated to take place in Kabale district.
