The round of 16 draws of the FUFA Women’s Cup have pitted Kawempe Muslim with the inaugural winners Olila High School WFC.
The draws were held on Wednesday morning alongside the Stanbic Uganda Cup quarter final draws at the FUFA House in Mengo.
Fresh from ejecting the holders UCU Lady Cardinals, Kawempe Muslim will make another trip to Soroti to lock horns with Olila High, a side they defeated 1-0 in last year’s Elite League final at Lugogo.
Olila marched to the round of 16 stage without kicking a ball after their would be opponents Amuria didn’t turn up.
Kampala Queens will play host to Masindi’s Lady Doves in a match that pits Crested Cranes head coach Farida Bulega against her assistant Oliver Mbekeka.
Mbekeka’s Lady Doves thumped Wakiso Hills 7-0 at Wakisha whilst Kampala Queens edged Isra Soccer Academy 1-0 courtesy of Aisha Namukisa’s free kick.
She Corporates have been drawn with fellow Victoria group opponents Muteesa I Royal University. Both sides overcame Ajax Queens and Lango Queens on the previous round respectively.
Makerere University female side She Mak will welcome Asubo-Gafford Ladies who eased past Luwero Women Club 6-0. She Mak weren’t in action after Town View SS Bugiri failed to honor their fixture.
Uganda Martyrs Lubaga are destined for another home fixture against a non league side in Divine Girls SS. The Lubaga school side drubbed Watoto Girls 10-0 with Shadia Nankya registering her name on the score sheet on 7 occasions.
Kawempe Muslim Junior Team will play against Bugiri’s Mwanda Foundation at the school valley playground.
