Kawempe Muslim SS clinched the Girls Football trophy of 5th Edition of the USSSA Elite championship in Jinja on Saturday.
Kawempe Muslim SS came from a goal down to salvage a point against Bukedea Comprehensive School courtesy of a Shadia Nabirye strike.
The point was just enough to hand the Valley Warriors their first trophy this year. Kawempe finished top of the group with 13 points and one point above second-placed Boni Consili Girl’s School which settled for silver and St. Noa Girls SS which took bronze home.
St. Noa had their title chances nailed on the first day as they were stunned by Boni Consili Girl’s School through a Rina Ariho strike which was enough to seal their first win of the championship.
