Starlet Winifrida Gerald first half goal was the difference as Hosts Tanzania pipped Uganda 1-0 at Azam complex to win the maiden championship.

Prior to the final clash , both sides were on a stretch of three consecutive wins and all on level with same points.

Uganda edged Ethiopia 1-0 in the opener followed by a 3-0 victory against Zanzibar and an emphatic 7-0 win over Burundi.

The hosts started off the campaign with a 3-0 victory against Burundi , 2-0 against Ethiopia , and a slim 1-0 win over Zanzibar on matchday three.

A bright start for Tanzania who were dominant in the first stanza against Uganda.

The ultimate moment came when the hosts were awarded a freekick after a foul on Aisha Juma by Uganda skipper Agnes Nabukenya.

Kipanga shot deflected off the post , for a rebound that was well converted by teenager Winifrida , Uganda conceding their first goal at the tournament.

At the start of second stanza , Uganda tactician Coach Ayub Khalifa brought in forward Shamusa replacing in Immaculate.

An improved performance as the visitors pushed for an equalizer but Tanzania held on till the final whistle where we saw an addition of 9 minutes.
