Harambee Starlets forward Mwanahalima Adam scored a brace as Thika Queens thrashed Kayole Starlets 7-0 at Thika Stadium on Saturday.
The win saw Thika Queens have maintained their place at the top of the Zone A of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Women Premier League.

Mwanahalima Adam netted his first goal in the 21st minute that saw Queens take a comfortable 3-0 lead at the breather.
After the restart, it took the hosts 30 minutes to break through Kayole’s defense and when they did, Lucy Ikhumba and Wincaate Kinyua netted quick fire goals inside two minutes before Adams bagged his brace in the 85th minute to extend Queens lead to 6-0.
The hosts were not done yet and a Sarah Chalovu goal in added time saw Thika Queens thrash Kayole in the seven-goal thriller.
