Women national football league defending champions AS Kigali began their quest for a record-eighth consecutive title with a comfortable away 3-0 win over Gakenke FC on Saturday at Gakenke ground.
Fourteen-year old Liberata Nibagirwe was the hero of the day after scoring all the three goals, to inspire coach Grace Nyinawumuntu’s side to victory.
Nibangirwe, a senior two student at Groupe Scholaire Kabusunzu, broke the deadlock in the 29th minute and added the second goal in the 69th minute before completing her hat trick nine minutes to full time.
“I am very impressed with the performance of my team especially, Nibagirwe, who scored 3 goals. She is a promising talent,” said Nyinawumuntu.
She added, “Our focus now is the next match against Kamonyi next weekend, which will be much tougher.”
