School Games: Tigoi Girls target East African glory

Tigoi Girls High School are now targeting success at the upcoming East African Secondary School Games after failing to clinch the national hockey title.

The Vihiga-based were stunned 1-0 by Nyamira Girls during last week’s national final in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County.

The western region giants will be looking to step up their game and improve on their fitness levels if they are to wrestle the East African from holders Kakungulu from Uganda who have won it twice in a row.

Head coach Moses Erima is confident that her girls will put in a spirited fight to see the title home and end Kenya’s two year drought.

“We need to improve on our fitness levels if we are to match Kakungulu because they already beat us in experience. They have their players in form five and six so they are already ahead but we can capitalize on fitness to go toe to toe with them.

“Kakungulu has never beaten us so this year we will not allow them to do so. I urge my attackers to be ruthless, utilize the chances created and capitalize on any mistakes our opponents make,” Erima said.

Tigoi are planning for a series of friendlies with Kenyan clubs when they report back for term two to keep them in good shape and provide the experience they need ahead of the regional school games.
