Namugerwa’s free kick from about 20 yards beat goalkeeper Juliet Adeke who literally remained glued to the goal line.

Catherine Nagadya nearly double the lead a minute later with her ferocious strike inside the area parried away by Adeke.

Kawempe Muslim were largely on the back foot in the game and a shadow of what they had produced in the first game against Kampala Queens.

The frontline of Juliet Nalukenge, Margaret Kunihira and Hadijja Nnadago lacked the cutting edge with the Uganda Martyrs backline defending relentlessly.

The Lubaga based outfit nearly got the second goal towards the end when Spencer Nakacwa went through on goal but chose to lay up Latifa Nakasi who missed.
