Seconds to the final whistle (90+3′), substitute Emma Natamba found the back of the net after he tapped in Abala’s cross from the left Wing to sealoff a comfortable 2 – 0 win against the Juniors.

In a post match interview with The Rwenzori Mail, Augustine Mubiru the Galacticals FC head coach said; “As a coach all I want is winning, entertain our fans and move on to the next stage”.

With both goals coming from substitutions, Mubiru says football is a calculative sport and tactical changes are made in order to beat the opponent.

“Kazibwe and Natamba did exactly what I told them to do and that’s why we have won this game. I am glad that all the three substitutes were involved in the two goals,” he added.

He however noted that even when his side has won, the performance wasn’t the best and he is getting back to the drawing board to see that his side displays an undoubted performance at the finals.

Galacticals FC will face K – Millan In the finals on Easter Monday at the same playground and the winner will walk away with a trophy and a cash prize of UGX 1Million.

K – Millan sailed past Locomotive FC in a penalty shootout (8 – 7) after a one all draw in a highly anticipated match.
