Tanzania Upset Kenya to Claim CECAFA Women Finals

Two quick first half goals from Omari Mwanahamisi was all that Kilimanjaro Queens needed to strike down Kenya’s starlet at a capacity crowd in the CECAFA women final played at the Fufa technical centre in Njeru near Jinja on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, erectile host Uganda Crested Cranes endured a difficult moment in front of the home fans going down 4-1 to Ethiopia despite opening the lead early in the game.

The Tanzanians had not lost a single game in the early stages and were conceded dark horses with their ‘not-so-exciting’ shows but just enough to do their job.

Kenya pulled a consolation later in the second half through Christine Nafula but the effort was not enough to guarantee a comeback like in the semi finals against Ethiopia.

Tanzania road to finals.
Tanzania were pooled in group B alongside Rwanda and Ethiopia. They picked their first win in a 3-2 thriller with Rwanda and later a barren draw with Ethiopia. The two tied on all statistics and their group classification was only decided by a coin toss.

The Kilimanjaro queens went on to spank Uganda 4-1 in the last four to set a date with the Starlets who before the finals had not dropped a single point.

Kenya emerged the highest scorers in the tournament punching in a whopping 23 goals which include 11-0 against Zanzibar, 4-0 over Uganda and Burundi then 3-1 in the semi finals against Ethiopia.
