Following the victory, Bullets have 39 points from 13 matches, six points above second-placed Ntopwa. This means Bullets, Ntopwa and Evirom, who have 27 points from 13 matches, have qualified for the 2022 Fam National Women’s Championship which will take place this year at a date and venue yet to be confirmed.

Bullets Women Coach Maggie Chombo heaped praise on the players.
