FWSL Hooray! Kampala Queens seal maiden league title

Allan Damba • 09:44 - 26.03.2023

Kampala Queens Women Football Club have been crowned the 2022/23 FUFA Women's Super League champions for the first time in history, with four games to play.

A Bridget Nabisaalu own goal and a Shamirah Nalugya goal were all the Moneybags needed on Sunday at the Islamic University in Uganda Kaboja to beat UCU Lady Cardinals 2-0 and cap off a dominant season that has seen them lose no game so far.

At the summit of the 10-team log, the Queens have 40 points, 17 ahead of the second-placed Kawempe Muslims, who cannot beat the tally with four games remaining to end the campaign.

As though being invincible (thus far) is not damning a statistic enough, Kampala Queens have won 13 of their 14 games, drawing just once.

They are both the most potent and meanest side in the league, as they have found the net 27 times and leaked in just four goals.

Last season, they narrowly missed the championship by a goal difference to She Corporates FC. The latter has, on the other hand, struggled to replicate last season's brilliance.

The administration then dived into the market, acquiring some of the finest stars on the land, including Hasifah Nassuna, Grace Aluka, Joan Nabirye, Sumayah Komuntale, Asia Nakibuuka, Daisy Nakaziro, Teddy Najjuma, Elizabeth Nakigozi among others.

And the acquisitions, along with the already existing bunch of stars like Margaret Kunihira, Resty Nanziri, Shamirah Nalugya, and Daisy Nakaziro, among others, have made history, albeit in style.
