It was perfect revenge for UCU Lady Cardinals who were ejected from the competition last year by Olila at this stage.

It is the first time UCU are reaching the final of the competition played on a knock out basis that was started last year.

Norah Alupo got the consolation for the ousted Olila. The match was played at UCU Campus in Mukono on Wednesday afternoon.

She Corporate joins UCU in Finals

She Corporate joined Uganda Christian University Cardinals in the final after eliminating Mutesa I Royal University at Muteesa II Memorial Stadium, Wankulukuku.

Namubiru Noeline scored an early goal in the 5th minute to give the visitors a lead but Habiba Nakayobyo leveled matters towards the end of halftime to bring the hosts back to the game.

Regular time wasn’t enough to separate the two sides thus the winner was decided on kicks from the penalty mark.

She Corporate’s custodian Fatumah Matovu exhibited great skills by stopping two of Mutesa’s kicks taken by Favour Nambatya and Margaret Namirimu.

Matovu converted the last kick to send her team to the maiden final.

Noeline Namiiro, Alice Kalimba, Penina Akuku, Sarah Namulindwa also converted for She Corporate with Florence Imanizabayo missing while Margaret Birabwa, Sharifah Naiga, Elizabeth Nakigozi and Najembe Precious successfully negotiated their kicks for Muteesa I Royal University.

The final will be played in Bushenyi at Kabwohe grounds on 23rd June, 2018.
