Opinion: Ulinzi Starlets' First Season in the top tier League has been perfect

Ulinzi Starlets won the inaugural Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Women's Cup in their first season in the top tier league.

The Joseph Mwanza-coached club managed to defeat the three-time Women Premier League (WPL) champions Vihiga Queens, 2-1.

Vihiga Queens will represent the CECAFA region at the inaugural Confederation of African Football (CAF) Women's Champions League in Egypt.

Ulinzi Starlets won Ksh 350,000 while Vihiga Queens received a KSh 150,000 reward for the runner-up courtesy of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

Maureen Shimuli was keen at the goalposts as she denied Vihiga Queens a number of chances to score. The goals came from Vihiga's super substitute Topister Situma and Ulinzi Starlets' Lucy Mukhwana and Christine Wekesa.

Players with outstanding performance were also awarded: Vihiga Queens' custodian Lilian Awuor won the golden glove award while Ulinzi Starlets' Neddy Atieno won the golden boot award. Vihiga's skipper Enez Mango got crowned the Most Valuable Player (MVP).
