Braces from Topistar Stimu and Terry Engesha on Sunday 11th saw defending Kenyan Women Premier League champions Vihiga Queens return to the top spot after a lengthy spell away from the summit as Alex Alumirah’s charges did a 4-0 rampage against Kayole Starlet.
Having already won 7-0 on Saturday against Mathare United Women FC, Queens made it a clean weekend with a second resounding result against Starlet who had in fact dispatched Eldoret Falcons 3-2 a day before.
Kisumu All Starlets, for the first time in the season, fell in two successive matches- first, a 3-2 goalfest pitting the Kisumu side and Kibera Girls Soccer Academy on Saturday at the Stima members’ club and later fell 2-1 at the hands of Makolanders on Sunday.
Makolanders had themselves taken a narrow 1-0 slip against Gaspo Youth on Saturday.
2016 champions Thika Queens meanwhile were only active once over the weekend- an away trip to Mathare United Women FC and they kept their title hopes alive with a 2-0 win.
On their way back home after a Saturday loss to Kayole Starlet, Eldoret Falcons were felled once more in Naivasha by Oserian Ladies FC.
