Makerere University put up a performance that sent shockwaves to the entire women football fraternity as the underdogs beat all odds to win the championship.

Jemima Twesigye scored from  the spot  to put Makerere University into the driving seat midway the first half after youngster Catherine Nagadya was put down in the forbidden area by Lady Doves’ defender Nancy Akello.

Lady Doves’ Lillian Veronica almost leveled matters but she failed to make it count inside the box which would have been a goal.
