Eldoret based Falcons Football Club will take home all the share of spoils from their Kenya Women Premier League Week 5 visit to Kisumu to face home side Palos Ladies. A lone strike coming just a minute off of restart, Falcons would hold on the remainder of the clash to make it two wins in five.

Having both played to a cagey affair in the first forty-five, Elizabeth Mulupi  would head into an empty net after Palos keeper Grace Tambo had parried back into play a corner kick. This was only in the 46th minute. 

Despite late efforts to claw back- including a missed penalty kick after Left Full-Back Lynne Mutheo had brought Emmalyne Adhiambo down in the box, Palos would trail till full time after the latter failed to find the mark with her spot-kick. 

Falcons hit 8 points and climb above Mathare United Women to seventh on the log pending other week 5 results.

Queens Riot

In another match played at Jericho's Camp Toyoyo grounds, champions Vihiga Queens dispatched Mathare United Women 5-0 to further assert their dominance at the top. 

Phoebe Oketch opened the scores before Terry Engesha ensured a 2-0 lead by the break. At the hour mark, Engesha would convert from the spot and dully completed her hat-trick four minutes later after heading home a Shilwatso Cynthia corner kick.

The icing on the cake would be powered in by Kenya U20 International Corazone Aquino to make it 5-0.  The win takes Queens joint top with Thika Queens with the latter ahead on goal difference.
