FUFA Women’s Cup 2018
UCU Lady Cardinals Vs Olila High School – Mukono
Muteesa I Royal University Vs She Corporate – Wankulukuku
There will be renewal of old foes as FUFA Women’s Cup holders Olila WF take on UCU Lady Cardinals. With Either side looking at this as the chance to win silverware this season after failing in the league, the encounter promises to be a tricky one.
The two teams will clash in the semifinals of this year’s FUFA Women Cup following the draws held on Thursday at FUFA House in Mengo.
Note should be taken that the same fixture was played at this very stage last year and Olila managed to dump out UCU Lady Cardinals winning the game 2-1 on penalties after a two all draw in normal time.
Therefore, the University side will not only be seeking to reach the final but also revenge against a team they have failed to beat in the last three encounters.
The two teams were in the same group(Elizabeth) of the just concluded FUFA Women Elite League and the Soroti based side managed to pick four points in the two games they faced off.
Olila who defeated Gafford Ladies in the final last year in Busia eased past Bugiri Town View 4-0 in the quarterfinals. UCU as well got a similar score against Western United.
The other semifinal fixture will have Muteesa I Royal University playing against She Corporate at Wankuluku.
Like Olila and UCU, both Muteesa and She Corporate were in the same group (Victoria) in the league and either side managed to win while at home.
To reach this stage, Muteesa eliminated Uganda Martyrs High School while She Corporate dumped out league champions Kawempe Muslim.
The semifinal games will be played on 13th and 14th June (only one leg) with the final is slated for 23rd June in Bushenyi District.
