Ajax Queens Win 2017 Mama Becca Memorial Tournament

Ajax Queens were crowned champions of the 2017 Maama Becca memorial tournament in the open category after overcoming Kawempe Muslim in a tense penalty shootout on Sunday.

Barely a week after facing exit from the Fufa Women’s cup at the hands of the same opponent, here Ajax Queens made sure they earned revenge against Kawempe Muslim winning 4-2 in penalties after a barren draw in normal time.

With the tournament this time round played in Entebbe Municipality, patient Frank Mulindwa’s charges triumphed to win the 5th edition of the annual tournament played in memory of the late staunch Express supporter Rebecca Kazibwe alias Maama Becca one of the pioneers of women’s football in Uganda.

Midfielder Tracy Akiror and right back Viola Namuddu failed to convert their spot kicks for Kawempe Muslim.

Kawempe had defeated She Corporate 1-0 in the semifinal on Saturday courtesy of defender Yudaya Nakayenze while Ajax Queens eased past Katuzo women’s football club from Muyenga.

In the Primary schools category (U14) Main Street Primary school from Jinja defeated Entebbe’s Taggy High School 2-0 to be crowned champions.

Mukono High School emerged champions in the secondary schools classification (U19) edging past Kawempe Muslim SS 1-0 in a close contest.
