The FUFA Women Super League will take a final bend as it gets closer to its climax. By Saturday, May 1, the four clubs that will participate in the semi-finals of the ongoing tournament had been confirmed.
UCU Lady Cardinals topped group B with nine points as Lady Cardinals joined them on eight points to reach the final four.
The two join Kawempe Muslim Ladies and Uganda Martyrs Lubaga who progressed from group A.
In the first semi-final, Kawempe Muslim will face off with Masindi based Lady Doves at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru on Monday, May 3.
Fazila Ikwaput and Allen Nassazi will be in the spot light. The two being the finest goal scorers in the tournament, will have a big load on them to carry their sides into the final as they continue their hunt for the golden boot.
The second semi-final will feature UCU Lady Cardinals and Uganda Martyrs at Njeru in the afternoon. The game will be played after knowing the opponent to meet in the finals.
This fixture pits together two fantastic skippers Gloria Namugerwa and Hasifa Nassuna of Uganda Martyrs and UCU Lady Cardinals respectively.
The two have been imperious for their clubs during the group stages, producing crucial goals and leading their sides while on the field of play. The same will be required of them as the teams meet for the remaining spot in the final.
Both sides have great set-piece takers in Namugerwa for Uganda Martyrs and Shadia Nakya for UCU Lady Cardinals. Both sides have an abundancy of talent, and it will be up to the tacticians to decide how to approach the game.
UCU Lady Cardinals had to wait till the last day to confirm their qualification out of what seemed to be a tricky group. They faced a stubborn side Olila High School that equally needed three points to progress.
Defender Shadia Nankya’s goal carried the Lady Cardinals to the next level through a spectacular freekick from 40 yards to seal a semi-final place.
The victory was the third for the Lady Cardinals in the campaign topping the group on nine points.
Meanwhile, Ikwaput tops the charts of the goal scorers in the ongoing tournament with seven goals earned from four games. Kawempe Muslim’s Allen Nassazi comes close with four goals on her account.
