FUFA Women Elite League: Ehcos earn late equalizer against Lango Queens

FUFA Women Elite League

Ehcos WFC 1-1 Lango Queens

Ehcos WFC brightened their hopes of qualifying to the knockout stages of this year’s FUFA Women Elite League after earning a late equalizer against Lango Queens on Wednesday.

Despite losing 6-1 in their opening game against SHE Maroons, Ehcos returned a better side and eventually earned a point.

They conceded first with Joan Adong socring two minutes before the break but a late equalizer by substitute Martha Ajoro gave Ehcos a lifeline.

The first half was largely devoid of scoring opportunities with either side lacking conviction in the final third.

It was Adong who broke the deadlock in the 43rd minute with her powerful strike going straight into the back of the net.

Ehcos were unfortunate to lose first choice goalkeeper Sarah Anyipo through injury and she did not return for the second half. Grace Ikalamu replaced her and she did well not to concede.

With the game destined to the end, Ajoro who had come on in place of Rachael Abiyo tucked home the equaliser.

Lango Queens have two points in two games and will play SHE Maroons on Friday while Echoes on the other hand with one point will take on Wakiso Hills.
