Eldoret Falcons leapt into the summit of the Kenyan Women Premier League (KWPL), thrashing Kayole Starlets 4-2 in a league match played on Sunday, at the Camp Toyoyo Grounds, Nairobi.
Harambee Starlets ace Janet Bundi and Ascar Meto grabbed a brace each in the exciting clash, to seal the three points hence a total of 20 in the current campaign.
Thus, Thika Queens who beat the reigning champions Vihiga Queens 2-1 on Saturday, had their tenure in at the top cut short by the red-hot Falcons.
Despite the win, Facons head coah Joshua Ariko has blamed center referee Meshack Omondi for controversial decisions against his side.
“I am not happy with referee’s decision to award a penalty to Kayole. It was an aerial ball contest and my defender Winnie Adhiambo headed it, only for him (referee) to rule he pushed a Kayole. That was not right at all,” he charged.
Ariko noted the win will be pivotal in his chase for the title, adding his team has settled well for the season.
“I am grateful for the win, my aim was to reclaim the top spot and we have achieved it. We will try as much as possible to maintain our current position and form, eyes on the title,” underscored Ariko.
