Cheered on by a fully packed stadium, both teams displayed a scintillating performance but they missed several openings before the half time break.

The second half was delayed for almost an hour as heavy rains pounded the lakeside city.

Langa FC restored parity in the 70th minute with a cool tap-in by Alex Kamadi following a goalkeeping howler from Odek.

The teams headed straight for a penalty shootout to find the winner.

Queens coach Collins Opidi expressed his satisfaction with his players’ mentality, composure, and style they exhibited in the entire tournament.

A game against Barcelona Ladies wasn’t easy because we were scared of them as they are an established club but ours are school-going students,’’ explained Opidi during an interview conducted after the match.

He revealed that they decided to settle down and play their style of football which proved to be a game changer.
