New FUFA Women Super League entrants Wakiso Hill suffered a 1-0 defeat in their first league game against Makerere University at St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende on Sunday.

Noeline Namiiro scored the lone goal that proved to be the difference between both sides in an evenly contested encounter.

Namiiro, formerly at She Corporate, capitalized on a lapse in the Wakiso Hill defense to score her first goal in the Makerere colours in the 58th minute.

Wakiso’s biggest chance of the game came in the 90th minute when Rashida Nankya had a brilliant strike saved by goalkeeper Zahara Nankya who got injured in the process.
