    Neddy Atieno, Mary Kinuthia and Esse Akida were on the scoresheet as Harambee Starlets thumped Burundi 4-0 in their second group A clash on Wednesday 13 September in the ongoing CECAFA Women Championship in Jinja, Uganda.

    Burundi came into the game oozing with confidence after a 10-1 win over Zanzibar but found it tough against a much-polished Starlets side.

    Neddy Atieno opened the floodgates in the 30th minute before Mary Kinuthia doubled the lead three minutes later. Esse Akida then extended her goal tally to three in the tournament a minute before the break. Neddy Atieno would later grab a brace moments after resumption to seal Burundi’s fate.

    Starlets have scored 8 goals in two games and conceded none. They will look to carry that form to the last Pool A match against Zanzibar on Thursday 15th September and the forthcoming Semis on Sunday 18th September.
