Olila, Kawempe can only get stronger in FWEL

At the start of the season, Olila Women coach Saddam Pande, urged his players to treat every Fufa Women Elite League match as a final.
The advice seems to be paying off for this team that won the inaugural Fufa Women Cup in June.
The Soroti side’s 1-0 home win over Uganda Martyrs High School (UHMS), Lubaga courtesy of Siporoza ‘Falcao’ Amoding’s goal, on Saturday now means Olila has maximum points from five FWEL encounters.
“We take every game seriously and I believe we can only get stronger,” Pande told Daily Monitor as he prepares to welcome back goalkeeper Vanessa Kalungi and midfielder Cissy Nantongo from school for the next couple of games that will be played during their holidays.
“I hope those two are still at the level they performed at last season or even better because we need to complete the first half of the season with the maximum 18 points,” Pande added ahead of their encounter with Kampala Queens.
Elsewhere, Sharon Apon has been deployed to lessen the burden on Juliet Nalukenge and she has repaid the faith by scoring in two successive wins for Kawempe Muslim against Victoria Group’s best defences; Ajax Queens (last weekend) and She Corporate (in a 1-0 win on Saturday).
Ayub Khalifan’s charges also have maximum points from five games ahead of the December 9 encounter with Gafford – the only side to ever record a win over Kawempe – in four league seasons.
Meanwhile, UCU Lady Cardinals continue to disappoint despite having a star-studded squad as they lost a second successive game at home, this time losing 0-1 to Kampala Queens.
