Oserian Ladies finished third in the Football Kenya Federation Women Premier League following a 1-0 win over Makolanders in the third place play-off decided at Camp Toyoyo Grounds over the weekend.

Laila Apiyo scored the lone goal in the 20th minute to give the Zone B side the win.

To progress to the third-place play-off, Makolanders finished second in Zone A while Oserian Ladies finished second in Zone B.

Makolanders started the match with an effective outpouring of energy compared to their opponents who waited for attacks at their own half.

On three minutes, Army Lasu played in Florence Adhiambo, who exchanged a delightful pass with Lucy Njeri but her shot went wide.

Oserian later conceded a corner in the sixth minute that was taken by Njeri but the South Sudanese forward Amy Lasu headed the ball over the bar.

Oserian responded immediately with Leila Apiyo getting a pass from Dorcas Shikobe but her shot was weak with the ball rolling out for a goal kick.

At the other end, a corner in the 14th minute from Makolanders forced a clinical save from Florida Osundwa.

But it was Oserian Ladies that went on to score after Shikobe played Apiyo onside and the latter sent the ball past Pauline Adhiambo for the opener.

Makolanders pressed on for an equalizer as Lasu drove her effort just across goal in the 30th minute while Edna Sumba forced the ball out for a corner.

The resulting corner did not yield anything but Makolanders continued to create half chances before half time.

On resumption for the second period, Oserian came out stronger and had their best chance in the 54th minute with Brenda Sirikwa hitting the side netting.

The best of Makolanders came at the hour mark when Nigerian import Vivian Ebere sent her effort wide from long range.

Oserian dominated the better part of the second half but they wasted a couple of scoring chances.

However their first half goal turned out to be enough to seal the win.
