A late strike by Gentrix Shikangwa saw Kenya’s Harambee Starlets beat Ethiopia 3-2 in a friendly match played at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Starlets took the lead in the 7th minute courtesy of Mwanahalima Adam. No more goals came forth from either sides in the first half until the second half when Ware Birtukan restored parity for the guests.

Mwanahalima Adam got her name on the scoresheet again to help Starlets gain control of the game one more time before Ethiopia equalized this time through Serkadis Kidane.

Starlets’s goal machine Mwanahalima Adam was then brought down inside the box minutes to the final whistle and with that, Kenya were awarded a Penalty with Gentrix Shikangwa making no mistake from the resulting spot kick.

The Match saw Topista Situma, Nelly Sawe and Lydia Akoth make their debuts for Harambee Starlets.
