She Maroons head coach Cida Alex Olowo admitted that he is fascinated with his squad after they earned progress to the FUFA Women Elite League quarter-finals with a game to spare.
She Maroons came from a goal down to defeat Wakiso Hills 2-1 in their second Group D game at the FUFA Technical Center on Wednesday.
“It is special that we earned two wins in two games to qualify to the quarter-finals comfortably,” Olowo told the media.
“We are still on track to achieving our tournament goal. I am hopeful we shall become a better side on the next stage,” he added.
Wakiso took the lead two minutes from the halftime break through Faridah Nanyonjo’s powerful header.
Second-half substitute Winnie Kyomugisha levelled matters with a freekick in the 52nd minute before she converted from 12 yards to earn a victory for She Maroons.
“Whenever you win a game, there is a way you gain confidence in that you feel like you can win every other game. I know my team is fully boasted and confident after the achievement,” he said.
“I will say Maroons and Wakiso Hills is always a derby. I expected a hard game, and thanks to the girls who managed to overcome it in style,” Olowo concluded.
She Maroons have already secured a place in the quarter-finals after two wins in two games took them to the top of Group D with six points.
The group will take a break today to allow players to rest and return on Friday for the final group games.
In the last fixture of the group, She Maroons will face off Ehcos WFC who sit bottom of the group with a single point from two games played.
