“We thank God for the success because it was a very tough campaign from the start to the end. All the teams in the league have improved and though we still managed to get the results, it was not easy,” the Kick4Life coach stated.
“Credit must go to all the teams in our group and LDF as the team we played in the final. They really got the best out of us.
“We are looking forward to the coming season, it’s going to be exciting. I would like to thank the Super League Committee, LeFA women’s desk and the Lesotho Football Association for giving the platform to play with this competition.”
For his part, LDF coach Lehloenya Nkhasi, admitted that the early goal worked against his team mentally, but the final between the two teams was a thriller.
“It was a good game of football. We had a good plan unfortunately we conceded early in the game and it affected our players mentally. We managed to comeback with the equalizer before halftime,” Nkhasi said.
“in the second half, we again we conceded early and tried to play. It’s okay we lost, but I feel like a lot of things didn’t work in our favour on the day. Congratulations to Kick4Life for being crowned champions of the tournament,” he said.
