A 7-1 win over South Sudan saw the Harambee Starlets advance to the second round of WAFCON (Women's Africa Cup of Nations) qualification on a 15-1 aggregate score.

South Sudan had done well to stem the tide until the 37th minute when Harambee Starlets captain Mwanahalima Adam broke the deadlock from the spot in the 37th minute and doubled for Kenya on the brink of half time.

On return from recess, the Harambee Starlets continued business with Janet Bundi's 48th minute strike before Skiangwa double in the 67th and 73rd minute of the contest.

However, Josephine Nyibol grabbed the consolation for Shilene Booysen's side in the 81st minute before Lydia Akoth and Neddy Atieno completed the rout for the Kenyans.

With their progression, Kenya will face off with the aggregate winner between Uganda and Ethiopia on Sunday, in the second round next February for a ticket at the continent's showpiece.
