UCU Lady Cardinals were held to a 1-1 draw by new league entrants Lango Queens at Ireda Primary school playground in Lira.

Hajara Nakate drew first blood for the hosts as early as the 5th minute but moments later Hasifa Nassuna levelled matters for the Women Cup holders.

Farida Bulega’s Kampala Queens got off the mark with a slender 1-0 victory over Makerere University female side – She Mak at the University play ground.

Crested Cranes striker Resty Nanziri scored the all important goal in the first half of the game to seal maximum points.

The strike was Nanziri’s second goal of the season in three games played having previously scored against UCU in Mukono.
