Asubo Ladies have become the first team to be relegated from this season’s FUFA Women Super League after suffering a 3-1 defeat to Kampala Queens at Lugogo.

Asubo Ladies took the lead through Miriam Ayo but Kampala Queens fought back through Catherine Nagadya, Esther Namusoke and Lukiya Namubiru.

Ayo broke the deadlock in the 41st minute with a brilliant volley after Sarah Babirye’s exquisite free kick hit the cross bar.

Nagadya took matters in her own hands to level the scores in the second of the four added minutes of the first half.

Coming into the second half, Kampala Queens went for the kill. Esther Namusoke scored a beautiful long range strike in the 65th minute.

Lukiya Namubiru who came off the bench to replace Lillian Kasuubo, thought she had stretched the lead but her tap in from Nagadya’s ball was cancelled for offside.

Moments later, Namubiru scored again, and her strike stood, after Damalie Matama’s long range strike hit the cross bar on 72 minutes.

Asubo Ladies have managed 10 points from 16 games, with two games left which automatically confirms their relegation back to the FUFA Women Elite League.
