Asubo Gafford Ladies struck late through their in-form forward Kamiyat Naigaga to salvage a 1-1 draw against Makerere University in the FUFA Women Super League game played at Kampala Quality.

Makerere University scored an early goal through striker Sharon Namatovu who tapped home from a goal mouth melee in the 16th minute but was unfortunate not to win all three points.

Gafford Ladies fought back and got a much need equalizer inside the added five minutes courtesy of Naigaga who capitalized on a lapse in defense to brilliantly score from a tight angle.
