Meanwhile Mombasa Olympic coach Joseph Oyoo applauded his players for the victory despite the fatigue. Oyoo congratulated well-wishers whose contribution made it possible for the team travel back to Mombasa after the victory match.
-My girls played well and I wish to applaud them for their efforts. However fatigue took toll on us as we have traveled the whole night since we are a self-supporting club and cannot afford to come earlier to acclimatize. The artificial turf at Camp Toyoyo also made the matters worse as we are never used to playing on the turf unlike our opponents, he stated.
With the win Olympic have a total of 9 points from three matches. They started their league title campaign with a 3-2 victory over rivals Spedag before recording another resounding 3-0 win over Mathare United.
