The Uganda National women team Crested Cranes are delivering on all fronts but leaving their doubters in the cold corner following two wins out of two matches in the ongoing CECAFA Women Challenge Cup in Rwanda.

Having dislodged neighbours and rivals Kenya on Thursday (1-0), the Crested Cranes handled by Faridah Bulega kept their feet on ground to plan for the downfall of Ethiopia on Saturday.

The one day rest played the magic and when the ladies got the chance to return to action today, they played gallantly and with heart to secure three points. However they fell to a first half goal in the 39thminute but that didn’t deter their spirits as they kept on searching for the leveler.

Left fullback Grace Aluka who hit the cross bar on Thursday against Kenya from the free-kick, got it better this time against Ethiopia when the opportunity came her way to get the equaliser for Crested Cranes to make it 1-1 after the break.

Another pivotal player in the defence of the Crested Cranes Yudaya Nakayenze was on the mark with a header after a free kick was delivered by right back Viola Namuddu.

The game ended 2-1 in favour of Crested Cranes. Uganda will return to action on Monday against Tanzania in a tournament played on a round robin basis.
