“Football is won through moments and She-Maroons had their moment, which they used to score a winning goal. We are first-timers in this elite league and for sure the girls, most of whom are ordinary Level students, played their best, they have received the necessary exposure and if circumstances allow, they will play much better next season,” he said.

The She Maroons and Rhines SSS Women’s Football Club has sailed through to the finals of the FUFA women, elite league finals slated for June 3rd, 2021.

The She Maroons beat Wakiso Hill SSS women football club 1-0 at the Njeru based FUFA technical center on Tuesday to storm the finals while Rhines SSS beat Bunyaruguru WFC 4-3 in penalty shootouts after tying in a goalless draw during full-time.

Kauthara Naluyima scored the She-Maroons winning goal in the last minutes of the first round of the game played at the Njeru based FUFA technical center on Tuesday afternoon. She-Maroon’s head coach, Alex Olowo, said that his girls have a winning spirit, which has enabled them to triumph over their counterparts. “I coach a young team but, our technical team has always managed to instil and motivate a winning spirit in the minds of the girls and their focus on the pitch has given us this opportunity to excel to the finals,” he says. 



Wakiso Hill’s head coach, Swalleh Kamya said that his team played their best and executed all the tactics rightfully but they failed to win the game. “Football is won through moments and She-Maroons had their moment, which they used to score a winning goal. We are first-timers in this elite league and for sure the girls, most of whom are ordinary Level students, played their best, they have received the necessary exposure and if circumstances allow, they will play much better next season,” he said.  

Rhiness’s captain, Elsie Najjemba said that each player executed her role well, which earned them the opportunity of excelling to the next step. “True, I saved two penalties but, it was a joint effort from all of us as my colleagues too managed to score goals and we victoriously triumphed to the finals,” she said. 

On his part, Mohammed Nyanzi, the head coach of Bunyaruguru WFC, said that he plans to re-organize his squad by purchasing more players who will help him triumph through to the finals in the next season’s elite league.  By virtue of their qualification in the elite league finals, both She-Maroons and Rhines SSS have been automatically elevated to the FUFA women super league, the top flight women league in the country.
