The women warders later rained on Boron again shattering them 3-0 of 25-5,25-10 and 25-17 as local team Stadia was not able to persevere the severely sparks of Kenya Airways hence losing 0-3 to flights women of 6-25, 17-25 and 15-25.

His sentiments comes as the team reports at Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on Tuesday this week for training ahead of the October Zurich, Switzerland World Club Championships, team’s head coach Lung’aho is happy for winning the fifth leg against Mount Kenya University team at the finals of the of the fifth leg.
Lung’aho said the loss to Pipeline's team in the final match at some extent was contributed by the absence of team captain Brackcies Khadambi who travelled home due to domestic problems, Loice Chepkosgei who is nursing an arm string injury, as well as top scorer Lydia Maiyo who has been out for maternity leave.
