The Football Kenya Federation Women Premier League resumed on Saturday on a high note after Lucy Mukhwana scored four first half goals to inspire Ulinzi Starlets to a dominant 6-1 win over Mathare United Women in a round 11 fixture played at the Camp Toyoyo grounds.

Mukhwana’s hat trick in the opening 16 minutes of match was enough to unsettle the Slum Queens who have now conceded 15 goals in the two legs after previously losing 9-1 in the first leg.

Mukhwana opened the scores with her first strike on goal in the 6th minute giving Ulinzi Starlets an early lead.

Seven minutes later, Mukhwana grabbed her brace after she outplayed Mathare United Women’s defense to bag the second goal for Ulinzi Starlets.

Mukhwana summed up her hat-trick in the 16th minute when she converted a free kick with a header that landed the ball to the back of the net.

Mukhwana went for a haul through her goal in the 22nd minute giving Ulinzi Starlets their fourth goal.

Siliya Rasoha first shot on target for Ulinzi Starlets in the 36th minute saw Ulinzi closing the first half with a comfortable 5-0 score line.

After the breather, Emily Egesa netted the sixth goal for Ulinzi Starlets with Emma Wainaina’s goal for Mathare United Women in the 87th minute summing up as a consolation goal with the full time whistle sealing the scores at 6-1.
