The FUFA Women Elite League resumed on Saturday with a game played in either groups – Elizabeth and Victoria.
Kawempe Muslim edged Muteesa I Royal University 1-0 in the Victoria group game played at IUIU Kabojja Campus.
Striker Samalie Nakachwa was on the score sheet for the first time this season at the stroke of halftime and ensured a slim win for the holders.
The result meant that the Ayub Khalifa coached team has now registered 10 consecutive wins and clean sheets since their 1-1 draw against Lady Doves in the opening game.
The four time champions stretched their tally to 31 points garnered from 11 games played.
In the Elizabeth group, Kampala Queens rallied from a goal down to defeat She Mak 4-1 at the Old Kampala playground.
Former Kawempe Muslim attacker Amina Nababi put the Makerere University side ahead before Farida Bulega’s charges retaliated with four goals, two in each half.
Veteran Annet Nakimbugwe, Doreen Nabukeera, Precious Najjemba and skipper Aisha Namukisa ensured Kampala Queens temporarily go to the log summit.
Kampala Queens are now level on points (21) with second placed UCU Lady Cardinals and Olila High School WFC who are third.
Both Olila and UCU will be in action on Sunday. UCU welcome minnows Town View SS at Mukono whereas Olila entertain Uganda Martyrs in Soroti.
Uganda Martyrs go into this match after edging Lango Queens 1-0 in Lira on Friday thanks to Shadia Nankya’s 9th goal of the season.
In other games to be played on Sunday, High-flying debutants Lady Doves stand a chance to clinch a playoff slot should they beat close rivals She Corporates at Nakawa.
Asubo-Gafford Ladies and Rines SS will negotiate their relegation woes at Kanyanya.
