FUFA Women Super League new comers Makerere University fought hard to earn a point off defending Champions She Corporate as the 2022/23 season got underway on Saturday.
In the game played at a boggy pitch following a heavy afternoon downpour in Kampala, She MAK as popularly known made it hard for the visitors to find the outlet.
With the pitch playing to their advantage, grew in confidence every passing minute even when She Corporate proved the better side in chances created.
New signing Spencer Nakacwa scored the first goal of the season at the stroke of halftime to give the Nakawa-based side the lead heading into the break.
The home side however levelled matters just six minutes into the second stanza. Daphine Nalubowa who was making her debut with the University side capitalized on a rebound to fire home.
The hosts should have taken the lead in the 75th minute when Margaret Namirimu held the ball in the area and a penalty was awarded but goalkeeper Fatuma Matovu was well stationed to save Sharon Namatovu’s attempt from 12 yards.
On the other hand, Phiona Nabbuma came close to scoring but her effort kissed the upright while substitute Jackie Nakasi failed to put the ball beyond the goalkeeper when she went through on goal.
Action continues on Sunday with three games. Kampala Queens host Asubo Gafford Ladies in Kabojja, Rines SS and Lady Doves are away to Uganda Martyrs High School and Olila High School respectively.
