Shakira Nyinagahirwa became the first player to score double goals after grabbing a second half brace in Kawempe Muslim’s 2-1 win over Asubo Gafford Ladies as the Women Super League resume at the Valley ground.

 

Kawempe who were wasteful on the day, found themselves trailing at halftime after Kamiyat Naigaga capitalized on a slip in defense to score for Asubo Gafford Ladies in the 30th minute.

Kawempe kept knocking for a leveller and eventually got it through the in-form Nyinagahirwa who was on a receiving end of a poor clearance to fire the ball past the keeper’s trying gloves in the 60th minute.

 

Nyinagahirwa then sealed the comeback for the school side from a perfect long ball from Rhoda Nanziri in the 87th minute.
