Gaspo Women ended Vihiga Queens’ dominance by beating them 5-3 in post-match penalties to book their place in the Kenya Women’s Premier League final set for Sunday in Nakuru.
The Isaac Maluki-tutored side finally broke their winless duck against Vihiga Queens following a 1-1 draw. Gaspo have lost the last four meetings against the defending champions.
Queens won the title in 2017, 2018, and 2019 and were almost sure of winning the title for the fourth unprecedented title before the shocker. Vihiga goalkeeper Lilian Awour was sent off early in the second half.
Gaspo team manager Edward Githua said his players were psyched up for the match and their progress was as a result of the collective team effort.
Star striker Tereza Engesha played and missed from the spot. Alumira had on Thursday ruled her out of the match because of an injury she suffered three weeks ago. Engesha has scored 15 goals this season.
