Reigning East Africa secondary school football champions, Kwale Girls, began where they left off in last year's campaign as Golini Zonal Term Two games ended in Kwale County at the weekend.

Trained by 2018 SOYA coach of the year (schools), Amboko Mukasa, Kwale Girls were in a ruthless form as they picked victories with much ease. They scored 39 goals in three matches.

The champions beat Mwamgunga 16-0, won 12-0 against Tsimba before wrapping up their assignment with a 11-0 victory over Golini.

“We are the East Africa champions and we must play like true champions,” said Mukasa.

Kwale Girls, who were named the best school in the last Soya awards, have vowed to retain all titles in this year's campaign.

Winners will represent Golini zone at the Matuga sub county games set for Thursday and Friday at Waa and Kaya Tiwi schools.
