Beijing Raiders on Sunday reclaimed their Nairobi Region Chapa Dimba na Safaricom girls' title after a 6-0 thrashing of defending champions Acakoro Ladies at Jamhuri High School.

The Starehe-based side had to wait until in the 40th minute to take the lead through Drailer.

Adhiambo extended their lead at the stroke of halftime with a powerful low shot from close range.

Adhiambo grabbed her brace in the 76th minute, before Drailer sealed her side's big win in 84th minute.
