She Maroons Head Coach Alex Olowo has promised an entertaining game in their FUFA Women Elite League semi-final clash against Wakiso Hills scheduled for Tuesday.

She Maroons were dominant in the group stages, winning all their three group games before comfortably eliminating Ajax Queens 3-1 in the quarterfinals.

“Our next opponent (Wakiso Hills) is so physical, and our game is always a derby, and we should brace for an entertaining game,” Olowo said ahead of the game.

“I am not planning to change anything, but encourage the girls to keep playing with a positive mentality. We have always been attacking, and it is the same mentality we carry to the semi-final,” he added.

“We shall pass the ball, and when we lose it, we shall press our opponent to get it back in a short while. Our target is to qualify for the Super League, so this is our biggest game,” Olowo continued.

Millicent Namwembe and Anita Babirye’s early goals gave She Maroons an early lead. Namwembe completed her brace in the second half to She Maroons on their way to within 90 minutes of promotion to the FUFA Women Super League.
