Four minutes later, Nakagolo fired the hosts ahead, breaking the deadlock as the crowd was sent to their feet.

On top of the hour, Amina Nababi scored the equaliser from the penalty spot.

Five minutes to the end of the game, Nakagolo nearly scored the winning goal, but her attempt bounced off the woodwork.

The two sides will meet for the second leg at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium to decide who will play the highly anticipated final.
