National women league reigning champions AS Kigali resume their hunt for a record-extending 8th consecutive league title when they visit Huye district-based Les Lionnes FC on Sunday afternoon at Mutunda grounds.

 

The league had been put on hold for the past three weeks to enable the national team prepare for the just concluded CECAFA Women Championship which was staged in Uganda and was won by Tanzania, who defeated Kenya 2-1 in the final on Tuesday.

 

AS Kigali head coach Grace Nyinawumuntu believes her team is in a good shape to beat any opponent after many of her players were with She-Amavubi in Uganda where they lost against Tanzania and Ethiopia in Group B hence returning home early.

 

“We’re lucky because majority of my players were in the national team and we have benefited a lot from CECAFA in terms of experience and match fitness. Les Lionnes are always tough opponents but we have to win this game to maintain top spot in the league table,” said Nyinawumuntu.

AS Kigali lead the women football league table standings with 30 points in 10 matches, nine points ahead of Rambura FC, who will not be action this weekend.

Les Lionnes are third with 18 points, one point ahead of fourth-placed Kamonyi FC while Bugesera FC are sixth with 16 points.

Elsewhere, Gakenke FC, who are sixth with 12 points in 12 matches, take on winless Nyagatare, Kamonyi host Inyemra while Golden Generation entertain Bugesera..
