Strathmore Scorpions display their tophy after a previous tournament

Nairobi, December 20, 2011.. The 2011 edition of the Kenya University Sports Association (KUSA) games came to a close in Nairobi today with Strathmore University ladies (the Scorpions) winning the women’s hockey title and Kenyatta University (KU) reigning supreme in the men’s final.

However, the Strathmore Scorpions needed a penalty shoot-out to stop stubborn KU 2-1 after the women’s national league sides battled to a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

Joan Chemtai put KU ahead 1-0 at the interval before Miriam Oungo equalided in the second half to summon for the flicks.

Strathmore national team call-ups Lilian Aura and Caroline Njoki would score for Strathmore with Benazir Omotto managing one for KU.

The win adds onto Strathmore’s trophy chest, being the reigning East Africa University Champions and dethroning United States International University (USIU-A) ladies to the second position in the Kenya Hockey Unions 2011 league table.

Chris Muchwanju, James Juma, Gilbert Kosgey and Lewis Weyo scored for KU in the men’s hockey final while former Strathmore player Ali Musa managed the consolation for Moi University.
