The FUFA Women’s Super League Champions She Corporate FC have qualified to the finals of the ongoing CAF Women’s Champions League Qualifiers after a 2-1 win against Commercial Bank of Ethiopia FC.

Goals from Namata Anita and Phionah Nabbumba secured their slot in the finals.

Top scorer Loza Abera scored the consolation goal for the Ethiopian giants.

Anita Namata opened the scoring in the 20th minute tapping home from a rebound after Phionah Nabbumba’s shot hit the woodwork after receiving a through ball from the goal scorer.

CBE FC nearly found the equalizer in the 47th minute through Loza Abera whose direct free-kick hit the crossbar.

Medina Awol also had a chance two minutes later but her effort went inches wide.

Loza Abera equalized for CBE FC after receiving a through ball in the 63rd minute.

Her incredible runs yielded both goals.

Phiona Nabbumba has now scored 6 goals in 4 games level of CBE FC’s Medina Awol Busser and 4 goals behind the leading scorer Loza Abera of CBE.
