Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro Queens have retained the regional Cecafa Women’s Challenge Cup.

The Queens defeated Ethiopia 4-1 in their last round-robin match played on Friday at the Stade de Kigali in Rwanda to top the table from Uganda on goal difference.

The Queens, who finished with nine goals scored and four conceded, lost the opening match of the tournament to hosts Rwanda 1-0 before drawing 1-1 with Kenya’s Harambee Starlets.

They went on to defeat Uganda 4-1 and also humbled Ethiopia by the same margin.

“We are happy to be taking this trophy back home,” said Kilimanjaro Queens’ senior player Stumai Abdallah Athumani, who netted one of the goals in their last game.
