The victory means Akiror and Seminole College qualify for the District playoffs scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday this week. In case they progress, they will book a place at the College Nationals that will be played in Florida.

Akiror joined Seminole college in August this year, after guiding Kawempe Muslim to their fourth consecutive FUFA Women Elite League crown.
