Mombasa,KENYA: Kwale Girls claimed the 2017 Copa Coca Cola U-2017 Coast Region soccer title after edging Waa Girls 4-2 on post-match penalties in the finals played at the Shimo La Tewa secondary school on Saturday.
Waa had themselves to blame after letting slip a 3-1 lead to allow Kwale get into the match before forcing a 4-4 draw in regulations time leading to the penalty lottery.
Kwale Girls head coach Joseph Oyoo who guided St. Johns Kaloleni to national triumphed last year termed the victory a sweet revenge having lost to Waa in the finals of the Kwale county games.

Meanwhile it was yet another Kwale County affair in the boys’ finals where Ramisi Boys emerged champions by overcoming Kwale High 1-0, the same margin they recorded against the former the county finals.
En route to finals Kwale High spanked Mokoe Secondary from Lamu 5-0 while Ramisi were 3-2 winners over Barani from Kilifi.
