KHU League Table [as at 02/08/2010]

Sliders HC during a warm up before facing Strathmore Scorpions

The Kenya Hockey Union 2010 league resumes once again this weekend with a riveting top-of-the-table clash featuring Kenya Police vs Nairobi Simba. The results of this match will have a direct effect on who wins the league this season, with current champions Strathmore University in 4th place with 3 matches hand.

The ladies league is taking shape with Sliders being the unlikely tail chasers while Vikings and Strathmore Scorpions slowly making a name for themselves.

Check out how your team is doing as the league enters the decisive month of August 2010.

‘Sharks’ wipe the floor with Wazalendo as Strathmore draw

The Kenya Hockey scene was absolutely electrifying this past weekend with tough games both in and out of Nairobi.

On Saturday, Mvita hosted Kenya Police in Mombasa in a to-die-for match. In a sea-saw match where Mvita had sought to be the first team to hand the Police team its first defeat in the season, the law enforcers had their Gods to thank after managing to score through a penalty flick. This was to be the only goal of the match. Mvita came close to scoring, hitting the post once and missing several clear scoring chances.

In Nairobi, another coastal side, Mombasa Institute, was making its presence felt against national league title hopefuls Kimathi University Titans. In an entertaining encounter, the Mombasa side managed to put 3 goals past Kimathi. The students however managed to pull themselves back together to score two goals, ending the match at  3 – 2 in favour of Mombasa Institute.

The premier league mid-table clash between KCA-University and Parkroad did not disappoint either. With every thing to gain, each team presented a full strength squad. KCA were seeking to get back their winning ways after getting a draw against the fancied Kenya Police while Parkroad had to get a point from the match in order to have any realistic chance of surviving relegation this season. KCA drew first blood through a beautifully executed short corner. However, a resurgent Parkroad  pulled one back and pilled pressure on the students. The match ended in a 1 – 1 draw despite the students getting dozens of scoring chances and numerous short corners. Parkroad have their goal keeper, Brian, to thank after he made numerous saves.

Sunday saw a classic Kenya Hockey Ladies league derby pitting new comers Strathmore University Scorpions and regulars Sliders Hockey Club. The scorpions were the first to get a goal after dominating proceedings in the first 10 minutes. The Scorpions Lilian Aura Marshalled the midfield with ease as the students controlled the match in the early first half. However, skill, experience and patience were to carry the day for Sliders as Anita and  Awuor ran circles round the Strathmore Scorpions defense to get the all important equalizer. Sliders pilled pressure and got a record 4 short corners after the final buzzer was blown. They however failed to convert, ending the match in a 1 – 1 draw. []

Green Sharks players stretching before facing Wazalendo. The match ended 5 - 1 in favor of the Sharks

The weekend prime time match pitted last seasons semi finalists Wazalendo against the on-form Green Sharks in Nairobi’s City Park Hockey Stadium. In an extremely fast paced match, the Sharks displayed one of the most skillful and tactical games witnessed in the Kenya Hockey in recent history. All departments of the Sharks team functioned 100%, leaving the hapless Wazalendo chasing shadows in all areas. However, it was the deadly mid-field combination of the Captain Wycliffe Omach and Barnabas that left the once fancied Wazalendo in sixes-and-sevens. The match ended 5 – 1 in favour of Green Sharks. This is the second match in which the Sharks have scored 5 against their opponents; the first being against KCA a fortnight ago. []

Kenya Hockey is set to get a major transformation when the City Park Hockey Stadium in Nairobi gets a set of floodlights by October 1st this year.

The donation by Musco Lighting Company after a recommendation from the Africa Hockey Federation, was made over the last weekend following a series of meetings between the Kenya Hockey Union, National Olympic Committee and Musco officials.

The materials are set to be received in Kenya by September 1st and construction is expected to last one month.

The KHU chairman expressed his gratitute on behalf of the union, saying that the floodlighst would translate into longer training and playing hours thereby raising the standards of hockey in the country. This would also attract international teams and better competition.

Kenya was chosen by the Africa Hockey Federation based on its track record on Hockey. Musco’s president Joe Crookman was optimistic that the donation will bring back the glory of the game in Kenya once more.

The installation of the floodlights will help kenya prepare for major events, especially the 2012 London Olympic Games.
