Harambee Starlets sealed a top spot finish in Group B of the ongoing CECAFA Women Championships in Tanzania, consequently booking a semifinal berth against Burundi on Saturday.

Starlets beat Uganda 3-0, courtesy of a goal apiece by Mercy Airo, Mwanalima Adam and Gentrix Shikangwa, completing a perfect group stage outing.

โ€œI want to commend the determination in the players. They knew what was at stake and gave their best. They have to keep improving and maintain their best form,โ€ said coach David Ouma after yesterdayโ€™s match.

โ€œWe scored early in the game. That gave us the confidence to manage the game. I am also glad that we rested some players and gave others a chance. Mercy Airo, Topista Situma and Gentrix Shikangwa are just some of the players who took their chance yesterday,โ€ he added.

Up next is a semifinal match against Burundi on Saturday, as Uganda face hosts Tanzania in the other semi. The final, meanwhile, has been slated for Monday, November 25, 2019.
