The Kilimanjaro Queens stretched their lead in the 70th minute to ensure Kenya taste defeat for the first time in the tournament.

Meanwhile, Djibouti's campaign received another huge setback after going down 8-0 to Burundi.

Ineza Bora scored four goals, Karenzo Lydia bagged a hat-trick while Nzohabonayo Neema also got on the scoresheet as Burundi registered their biggest score in the age-group tournament.

Karenza and Bora completed the rout in the last 10 minutes as the former scored once while the latter got two goals.

Finally, Uganda overpowered Eritrea 10-0 in the last game that was played in Njeru on Friday.
