Kawempe Muslim continued with their winning form after coming from a goal down to defeat rivals Uganda Martyrs 3-1 at Lubaga.

Usual suspects Shakira Nyinagahirwa and Hadijah Nandago were on target while Phiona Nabulime grabbed the other.

Uganda Martyrs drew first blood at the stroke of first half through Angel Auki Kigongo who capitalized on a howler from goalkeeper Juliet Adeke to tap in from close range.

Kawempe equalized through Nabulime’s wonder strike from outside the box in the 52nd minute.

Nandago then grabbed the lead eight minutes later with a free header from Nyinagahirwa’s wonderful spadework. The game was also her eighth of the season.

Nyinagahirwa put the game beyond reach with a slightly deflected effort that also took her personal tally to 12 goals this season in the 78th minute.

Kawempe have won all their second round games apart from a 1-1 draw Olila in Soroti. They are currently second on the table with 29 points.

Uganda Martyrs remained third on 25 points and will seek redemption from their visit to Lady Doves in the mid week.
