• This was Gaspo's fourth draw of the season after 12 matches.
• Chris Kach's lone goal was all that Thika Queens needed to edge out Trans Nzoia Falcons 1-0
Gaspo Women surrendered a two-point lead at the top of the Kenya Women's Premier League standings to drop to second position following a barren draw with Nakuru City Queens.
The match at the Gems Cambridge on Sunday was an end-to-end affair with both teams wasting countless chances that would have guaranteed victory.
A win would have taken Gaspo's point tally to 27 but the lack of a clinical edge in attack proved costly.
Nakuru coach Benard Esitoko said the result was fair considering they did not lose. "I am okay with the draw. It would have been terrible to leave Cambridge empty-handed."
He added: "Our game plan did not work at all. Again, my attackers were wasteful but hopefully, we will find our scoring boots against Young Bullets in the Cup competition this weekend."
This was Gaspo's fourth draw of the season after 12 matches. The Kiambu county side now has 25 points same as Vihiga Queens but the latter enjoy a superior goal difference. Vihiga demolished Kangemi Ladies 5-0 on Saturday.
In another match, Chris Kach's lone goal was all that Thika Queens needed to edge out Trans Nzoia Falcons 1-0 to stay third on 24 points.
"The game was tough but we were lucky to take maximum points. We really felt the absence of injured striker Wendy Atieno. The scoreline would be different if she was available to play," Fred Majani, the Thika head coach said.
Atieno is currently sidelined with a head injury she sustained against Zetech Sparks a week ago. The 27-year-old is the WPL top scorer with 13 goals—three more than Monica Etot of Kisumu All-Starlets who has 10.
Explaining their scoring woes, Majani added: "We have struggled to score goals in the last two matches. That is a big concern and I hope the available strikers will share the goal-scoring burden."
