FKF Women Premier League side Vihiga Queens was eliminated in the first edition of CAF Women Champions League after their 4-0 thrashing in the hands of Nigeria’s Rivers Angels at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo, Egypt Friday.
The four time Kenyan champions had arrived in the game hoping that a draw or another win against the West African club who lost their first two games was all they needed to make it to the semi-finals of the competition.
This was Vihiga Queens second loss in Group B after they lost 1-0 in their opening match against Mamelodi Sundowns. The Kenyans beat ASFAR of Morocco 2-0 in their other match on Tuesday.
With Mamelodi Sundowns and ASFAR drawing 0-0 in their final match,both teams advance to the semis while Vihiga and Rivers Angels crash out.
Sundowns top the group on seven points, while ASFAR are second on four points. Rivers Angels and Vihiga Queens have three points each but the Nigerians have a superior goal difference.
ASFAR FC will now battle Hasaacas Ladies FC while Mamelodi Sundowns will take on Malabo Kings on Monday for a place in the final.
