KHU mens national league side Kimathi University Titans were on a goal scoring spree over the weekend with a well deserved win over Daystar University Students. Womens league side Sliders also registered its first win in several weeks of play.

The weekend games saw Kimathi put 6 goals past the Daystar students with no response. The win gave the Titans a boost in the table standings, moving two places up to position 2  with 11 points, one behind league leaders Nakuru Athletics. Nakuru were not in action this weekend.

Sliders dramatic 2 – 0 win over USIU-A ladies was the game to watch on Saturday. Going into the match, Sliders had a winless streak and were in a battle for survival.

The win moves sliders to position 3 with six points, same as USIU-A but with one match at hand. USIU-A are fourth courtesy of an inferior goal difference. Orange ladies and Strathmore Univ Scorpions lead the KHU womens table with 18 and 10 points respectively.

The Kenya Hockey Union premier league saw a clash between Nairobi Simba and Kisumu Simba. The match was to be played in Kisumu but was postponed 6 weeks ago. The two Simbas battled to a 2 – 2 draw in a well balanced match.

The visiting Simba side, Kisumu, displayed a much organized game in comparison to their previous visit to the city and always kept the Nairobi Simba defense on its guard at all times.

The draw leaves Nairobi Simba at position 4 with 13 points while Kisumu moves two places to position 6 with ten points.
