Mercy Achieng scored the only goal as Harambee Starlets trounced Kenya Women Premier league (KWPL) select in a friendly match played at Utalii Grounds today.
With their preparations for the Africa Women Cup of Nations set for next month on Ghana, The Starlets will be playing other friendly matches as a build up for the championships.
The win today was a motivator for the David Ouma let charges when Achieng converted a spot after a goalkeeping mishap by the Select Side’s Samantha Akinyi saw the referee point to the spot.
This was the team’s third day in camp, with all players having checked in, save for Esse Akida and Pauline Atieno who are set to check in in the course of the week.
The team will play two more friendly matches against Uganda and Ghana before departing for Ghana on November 14, 2018, in time for the continental showpiece.
