Amuria High School 0-1 Wakiso Hills WFC

Wakiso Hills defied odds to overcome Amuria High School WFC on Sunday and earn a slot into the semi-finals.

Despite struggling to qualify out of Group D and garnering just 4 points, Wakiso Hills managed to defeat Amuria High School who topped Group C with 9 points and scored 12 goals.

In the absence of skipper Faridah Nanyonjo who was suspended because of card accumulation, Wakiso Hills played as one unit.

The decisive moment came in the 67th minute when Amuria defender Josephine Atilong directed a corner kick into the back of her own net.

Amuria looked a shadow of themselves and failed to replicate the performance they had had in the Group stages.

The absence of influential captain Emmanuel Akoel and Evans Kunihira seemed to have destabilized the game approach for Amuria who looked to be at sixes and sevens.

Wakiso Hills therefore become the third team to secure a berth into the semi-finals, joining Rines WFC and Bunyaruguru.

The Antelopes will face either She Maroons or Ajax Queens who face off in the final quarter final game.

Amuria High School Starting XI
