Airo, Omita fire braces as Kisumu All Starlets whip Falcons in Eldoret

Kenya Women Premier League side Kisumu All Starlets were on Saturday 9th 4-1 winners over hosts Eldoret Falcons in a week 2 WPL match staged at the University of Eldoret Pavilion from 1 pm local time.

Having gone down 3-1 to 2018 runners up in the league Trans Nzoia Falcons, All Starlets declared an all out war in their remaining fixtures with Eldoret Falcons next on their roster.

2018 Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Most Valuable Player Mercy Akinyi Airo took Starlets off the blocks in the first half with a quickfire brace. The cue for more was now on the club’s all team leading scorer Bertha Omita who added a third briefly before the break.

Juma Saidi’s girls were well on their way to claiming their first victory of the 2019 WPL campaign with a comfortable 3-0 lead at the break.

Ruth Ingosi pulled one back for Falcons but it was too little too late as with he clock ticking away, Bertha Omita also ensured she went home with a brace- making it 4-1.

The win puts Juma’s girls at 3 points from 2 matches and will be in the top half of the table standings pending other results.
