Free-scoring Teresa Engesha netted a double and substitute Faith Marende also got in on the goal-scoring as Vihiga Queens defeated Kisumu All Starlets 3-0 during Sunday’s FKF Women Premier League Cone B clash at the Mumias Sports Complex.

Engesha scored the opener inside five minutes after receiving a beautiful pass from Joan Nabire and Marende doubled her side’s advantage in the 78th minute before Engesha wrapped up the points with her second on the day, capitalising on a goalkeeping error to finish.

Despite the convincing victory, Vihiga Queens Alex Alumira said he was unimpressed by the chance to goal conversion lamenting the scoreline should have been better.

“The ladies played good math but the striking needs more attention, scoring three goals after creating more than 21 chances is not acceptable, we were capable of scoring more goals, “said Alumira.

Alumira however, is confident that they will finish at the top of the table in zone B. He acknowledged that the visitors were good in the midfield and frustrated them in the first half.

Vihiga Queens captain Enez Mango said the win is an indication that Queens are more than focused to retain the trophy for the fourth times this year adding that the game was not easy and mental strength is what enabled them to win

“it was a tuff match, we had an advantage after scoring earlier and this enabled as to win, we are determined to win and keep our glory; “said Mango.

Kisumu all starlets Said Juma claimed the loss was due to lack of resources as the ladies trained for only two days hence making it hard for them, he adds that the striking need s a check after two of his best players left the team for greener pastures.

“I am not a happy man, the ladies lost this because they have not been in the camp consistently, it is hard to even get transport for these ladies to go for training. My striking needs attention, after two of my best strikers left, we need to dig deep and get a replacement “Said Juma.

Vihiga Queens will face Trans Nzoia Falcons next week on Sunday.
