Trans Nzoia Falcons head coach  Justin Okiring is optimistic of clinching the Kenya Women Premier League (KWPL) title this season, judging by the smooth run thus far.

Okiring led his charges in hammering Oserian Ladies 6-0 yesterday at Manour Agricultural Center, in one of their two fixtures played over the weekend, taking them to number two on the log.

Speaking to to Citizen Digital, he is sure that if the ladies continue playing hard then they are capable of clinching the title for the first time in history.

Tumaini Waliaula was the star of the match after scoring a hat-trick before Martha Karani, Irene Amutabi and Monica Paul scored one goal each to complete the scoreline, underlining Okiring’s team potency.

Okiring however admitted that there is a stiff competition from Gaspo Youth and Vihiga Queens who are the champions , in the challenge for the title.

“Gaspo and Vihiga are the only strong teams I fear in the league. Gaspo has signed very quality players, who have propelled them to tyhe top now with 33 points. We have 27 points, six away from them and it means we have to win every fixture for us to overcome them. I believe we can keep them at their toes, by winning every fixture,” said Okiring.

Oserian coach Hudson Odari slammed his ladies for lack of concentration, saying the whipping should not have occurred.

‘’This was one of our biggest losses of the season. We played well in the first half but we didn’t capitalise on our chances going to the second half. Falcons were strong, they used almost every chances they created. I have to focus more on the scoring, my strikers created chances but failed to use them.”

Gaspo leads the log with 33 points while Eldoret Falcons and Vihiga Queens sit second and third consecutively both having 27 points but Eldoret have more goals.
