The Kenya Hockey Union has trimmed the hockey national men and women’s after trials in early June. The trials were held at City Park, Nairobi.

The mens team has been trimmed to 29 while the women are 28 from an initial pool of approximately 40 players in each team.  While defending champions Strathmore Gladiators and last years runner-up Kenya Police contribute the bulk of the players in the mens team, Orange ladies hockey team contributes over half of the womens teams.

Orange survive to beat Strathmore as Sharks fail to impress again

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

Africa champions Orange Ladies have all but sealed their 11th consecutive Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) title. With an impressive 15 point gap between the champions and the second placed team USIU-A ladies, Orange now have all their eyes set for the upcoming Africa Club Cup championship in December in Accra, Ghana.

The champions were however made to sweat for a narrow 3 -2 win over league debutants Strathmore University Scorpions. The fast paced match played at City Park Nairobi was all set for a 2 – 2 all draw before Orange scored the wining goal on the 70th minute. Betty Tioni opened the scoring in the 10 minute before Jacky Ogot added a second 15 minutes latter. However, strathmore’s Norah Kijala rallied the students to a 2 all draw by scoring two brilliant goals. Tioni later rescued the Orange ladies with a last minute goal, second before the final whistle.

The mens premier league got the excitement it needed with the two main title contenders in action. Kenya Police played their last game against last years semi-finalists Green Sharks while champions Strathmore Gladiators were away to Western Jaguars in Kakamega. The Sharks failed to impress a second time by losing their second match in as many weeks. Police won 1 – 0 against an uncoordinated Sharks side.  Strathmore continued to pile pressure on the cops by pumping 6 goals past their harpless hosts. Jaguars got a consolation goal to end the game 6 -1 in favour of Strathmore.

Other matches saw waning giants Kisumu Simba loose its 2 weekend matches against Parkroad and Wazalendo by a 1 – 0 margin in both games. Hosts mombasa also won USIU-A ladies 2 – 0 as the USIU-A men also slumped to a 2 – 0 defeat by Mvita IX. The national mens league saw Mombasa SC loose by 1 – 0 to visiting Barbarians.

The league resumes next week.

Sliders regain form as Strathmore pressures Police

The last weekend of August had lots of great hockey going on with a few surprises too! In the mens premier league matches, all the top four teams were in action.

Current leaders Kenya Police were facing their toughest test yet against number 2, Nairobi Simba. Both teams are yet to loose a math this season and they seemed to like it left that way after battling to a 3 – 3 draw. The draw ensured that Kenya Police maintained its top slot, though its Nairobi Simba that breathed a sigh of relief since it has faced all its toughest opponents (Strathmore, Green Sharks and Kenya Police) and got draws from them all.

Current league champions Strathmore University Gladiators were put to the test late Sunday evening, but managed to get a labored 2 -1 win over a resilient Parkroad team. Strathmore were the first to score in the 6th minute but Parkroad got the equalizer 15 minutes latter. The students then scored the winning goal in the second half.

In Mombasa, last seasons semi-finalists Green Sharks were held to a 2 – 2 draw by a hard fighting Mvita team. The Sharks seemed complacent and looked a distant team from the one that put 5 goals past Wazalendo just over a fortnight ago.

The weekend results leave Kenya Police as number one with 14 points, Strathmore at number two with 13 points and Nairobi Simba at number three with 12 points. All teams, with the exception of Kisumu Simba, Western Jaguars and USIU-A have played at least 5 games.

The womens league saw sliders regain their respect by drumming two goals past their hosts Mombasa Sports Club. Sliders have had a poor streak and the win serves as a morale boost for the once formidable team.

Other matches saw Kimathi University loose to Parklands hockey club. The win puts Parklands in a good position to qualify for the premier league next season.

Kenya Hockey Union Revised Fixtures [As at - 10/09/2010]

The Kenya Hockey Union has released a revised league fixtures for the 2010 season.

In an short email sent to Team Managers and Coaches in early August, KHU says the fixtures were interrupted following security concerns in the country at the time. Kenyans were preparing to vote in the constitution referendum at that time.

The same email also instructs clubs to complete paying their outstanding dues within 14 days to avoid cancellation of their games. Kenya Hockey scene has a number of self supporting clubs such as Wazalendo, Parkroad, Green Sharks and Blue Eaglets amongst others, which depend on current and past players contributions to meet their expenses.

KHU also plans to introduce the use of player ID’s and have given the Team Managers a 14 day grace period to submit passport size photos of their players or risk having the players barred from representing their teams.
