Mixed results in hockey league as USIU fall, Police shoot with precision
USIU head coach Kabuu John is disillusioned as his charges
were on the losing end in weekend’s hockey league match played at City Park
falling 0-1 to Kenya Police.
Despite dominating the match in all the four periods, the team failed to convert their chances and Kabuu reckons it was a bad day in the office.
“The results were disappointing despite my team dominating in all four quarters but because they didn’t convert our chances, our opponents won. We shall rectify the areas where we didn’t perform well,” Kabuu, said, noting that, “Sometimes in sports, we say it isn’t your day. At times in sports, you win, sometimes you lose. It was bad luck for us. I won’t say my side was fatigued since I had enough bench power. It was just a bad day in the office, especially for my forwards.”
His counterpart Patrick Mugambi said that the contest was tight but is magnanimous in victory.
“The match was tough as this was our third meeting this week against USIU after meeting them twice during the Gold Cup competition. It’s not easy to win against a team three times consecutively. Our focus is to continue collecting maximum points, to win the league,” said Mugambi.
Police are second on the log on 10 points, a point shy of the league leaders Butali who have 11, and shared spoils with Western-based counterparts Western Jaguars in a 0-0 draw.
In other men's top tier results, MSC lost 2-1 to Greensharks as Parkroad Badgers squeezed a narrow 1-0 win over Sailors.
USIU who have now registered two losses, two draws and a single victory are eighth with five points, a point ahead of jaguars, who are second last on the 10-team table.
Meanwhile Mombasa Sports Club registered their fifth defeat of the season, after losing 2-1 to Greensharks . The defeat leaves them rock bottom of the log while Parkroad moved to seventh position following the win.
Sailors face defending champions and league leaders Butali Warriors on May 29 while Police visit Greensharks at City Park.
