Thika Queens drop points but remain unscathed in league race
Kenya Women Premier League (WPL) zone A leaders Thika Queens lost ground in their title quest after they were held to a 1-1 draw by fourth placed Mathare United at the weekend.
The loss means that the defending champions are now four points ahead of the second placed Mombasa Olympic and Thika Queens coach Benta Achieng has pointed out a lapse in concentration for the equalizer after they had taken an early lead via penalty.
“We were the first to score then they equalized from nowhere, we were not expecting a goal but we are happy to have drawn away other than to lose,” said Achieng.
Achieng is however convinced that they will bounce back this weekend when they face Soccer Queens as they attempt to retain the title.
“I am optimistic that we are going to retain the title, if we manage to win in our next two matches then we are good to go,” remarked Achieng.
In another match, Soccer Sisters were humbled 3-1 by Makadara based Makolanders who moved to fourth with 14 points.
In WPL zone B, two matches were played over the weekend as second placed Oserian FC were held in 0-0 stalemate with fourth placed Eldoret Falcon.
The sole point lifts Oserian joint on points with leaders Vihiga United who have 20 points only that they have an inferior goal difference.
