Set to conclude in the weekend of Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September 2012, the FKF Girls Premier League final weekend had to be pushed back by two weeks to allow the Women’s National team to prepare for an international friendly against Ethiopia.
Seven final games
That friendly was played in Addis on Saturday 29 September with Kenya going down 5-0 to the hosts.
The friendly over and done with, focus now returns to the 12-team Girls League that is set to conclude in the upcoming weekend of Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October.
Lined up for the weekend will be seven final games; three on Saturday and another four on Sunday.
At stake on Saturday is the title as the title race was sent down the wire during the last round of games.
Then, Matuu fell 3-1 to Old is Gold to remain on 55 points from 21 games while MOYAS saw off Thika Queens 2-0 to move to 54 points.
On Saturday, MOYAS will host Mombasa’s Spedag at the Langata Prisons from 0900hrs while Matuu will be away to Kamaliza Eaglets at St. Paul’s later in the day, from 1500hrs.
A MOYAS win will certainly see Matuu head to Kamaliza pressured but will Matuu will be crowned Champions with a win at St. Pauls.
Beyond the two, there will be a fight by Kisii United, Spedag, Thika Queens and Mathare United with each planning a fourth finish.
Spedag, currently fifth with 35 points, stand a good chance of taking up that position as the team has two matches in hand; against MOYAS on Saturday and Sotik Super Stars on Sunday.
Mathare United currently seventh with 32 points is in the mathematics for fourth with a Saturday game against tenth placed Makolanders.
Kisii United is currently fourth with 35 points and ahead of Spedag on goal difference. The team concludes the season with a Sunday game against Kisumu’s Galacticos Youth.
With 50 points, Old is Gold is already assured of ending third, and will concluded the season on Sunday with a game against Thika Queens.
