Wiyeta Girls cruised to the girl’s football semi-finals of the ongoing Brookside East Africa Secondary School games after thrashing Uganda’s Mukono 3-0 in a one-sided affair at the Hill School Grounds on Thursday.

Monica Etot, Martha Amunyololet and Rhoda Nafula were on target for the four-time regional winners in the 33rd, 43rd and 53rd minutes to set up a mouthwatering semis clash with national champions St. John’s Kaloleni who saw off Nginda 2-0 in another quarters match at the Eldoret Sports Club.

Hellen Ochieng fired St. John’s into the last four, notching a brace in the 54th and 67th minute while Uganda’s Masaka eliminated Burundi’s Nyakabiga 4-2 in post-match penalties after a 1-1 stalemate in regular time.

Kenyan side Nyakach were knocked out 4-2 by Rwanda’s GS Remera in post-match penalties after both teams had drawn 2-2 in the normal time.

Remera will play Masaka in the last semi-final.

Wiyeta’s Leah Cherotich hit the woodwork in the seventh minute, before Nafula’s shot flew only inches off the mark.

Nambiru Lukiya wasted Mukono’s only promising chance of the first half, blazing over the bar with keeper Jackline Jepkemoi to beat after combining well with Maureen Afoyo.

Sylvia Munyasa and Angela Khasiala both lost glorious chances to put the eventual winners ahead shortly before the breakthrough came when Ekot turned in Joyce Wamalwa’s cross.

Wiyeta continued their dominance over the Uganda side in the second half cheered on by the home crowd in the modestly filled stadium.

Amunyololet scored the second from a powerful 35-yard a free kick that custodian Vanessa Karugi’s could not find the power to tip the ball over the bar ending up in sending it to the roof of the net.

Mary Apire failed to handle Anyango’s loose ball properly, gifting Nafula for the third, firing in between Fausia Najjemba and Karugi for the third goal.
