The Plateau Queens who represented the Nyanza region defied all the odds to edge out favourites Tartar Girls from West Pokot 4-3 in post-match penalties to be crowned champions, pocket Sh1mn prize and a trip to London for a week-long training and a metorship with the tournament’s brand ambassador Victor Wanyama.

“I want to thank the coaches who have natured these girls who have made our Kisumu county proud. We wish you all the best when you go to United Kingdom get the skills so that you can shine in your career,” Nyong’o said.

The match had ended 1-1 after Tartar’s late equaliser through Cheyesh Jeniffer who cancelled out an own goal that had sent Plateau ahead in the 66th minute.

Plateau goalkeeper, Judith Osimbo won the Golden Glove, Mercy Akinyi scooped the Golden Boot award after netting five goals while Beryl Eshiteku from Plateau was named the Most Valuable Player.

Osimbo was the heroine when she saved one kick before a Tar Tar player blazed over as her corresponding counterpart from TarTar rescued one.
