WPL Things fall apart as Kisumu All Starlets relegated from Women's Premier League

All Starlets have been relegated alongside Kangemi Ladies and Kayole Starlets.

Kisumu All Starlets have been relegated from the Football Kenya Federation Women’s Premier League (FKFWPL) despite a huge 6-0 win over Trans Nzoia Falcons on Saturday afternoon.

All Starlets needed a win hoping for Bunyore Starlets to lose their match against Nakuru City Queens.

However, Bunyore managed to pip Nakuru by a solitary goal in a match played at Mumboha Grounds in Luanda.

All Starlets spent the better part of the 2022-2023 season battling in the bottom half of the table.

Coach Beryl Oketch had hoped to beat relegation due to her charges' fighting spirit and desire to remain afloat in the recent games, but her team was not able to achieve this goal.

Trans Nzoia Falcons' defense crumbled when Kisumu exerted pressure from the first whistle with the first goal coming from Beth Achieng in the seventh minute.

Ten minutes later, Achieng added her second goal when she was picked up by Rosemary Oraro after cutting onto her favored right foot, before squeezing the ball past Falcons' goalkeeper at the near post.

Beverline Adika made it 3-0 in the 27th minute before Faith Ogenda continued her scintillating scoring form when she made it 4-0 at the half-an-hour mark.

The onslaught continued following the break as Ogenda nodded home from a corner kick in the 80th minute for her second goal of the match before Beverline Adika completed a hat-trick in the closing stages of the match.

All Starlets finished in 10th position on the log with 26 points, two below Bunyore Starlets who finished fourth from bottom.
