The Kenya Hockey Union Premier League continues on Tuesday December 12, 2017, with a total six fixtures lined up in both men's and women's leagues.

Men's

Four matches will be played in the Men's Premier League, with league leaders Kenya Police, who registered a 2-1 win over Greensharks on Sunday taking on bottom placed Technical University of Kenya at noon. The match will then be followed by the one pitting Parklands Sports Club against Chase Sailors before KCA University take on Strathmore University at 15:00.

Bring the curtains down on Tuesday will be a clash between Sikh Union and Wazalendo at 18:00, with all matches slated for City Park Stadium.

Ladies'

In the Ladies Premier League, bottom of the pack University of Nairobi will be eyeing their maiden win of the season when they take on Strathmore University, a side that is currently fourth on the log and have lost only once in their last twelve fixtures. 

At 10:30, a mouthwatering clash between Chase Amira and league leaders Telkom looms as both sides seek to disrupt each other's rhythm.

Fifteen games into their campaign, Telkom still remain unbeaten and have only conceded two goals so far compared to 93 that they have scored. Amira on their part were held to a 1-1 draw by Vikings on Sunday and will be looking to get back to winning ways and probably end their opponent's unbeaten run.

Comment

Chase Amira's plans of consolidating the second spot in the Kenya Hockey Union women's Premier League table were momentarily stalled by Vikings, who held them to a 1-1 draw in a match played on Sunday December 10, 2017 at the City Park Stadium.

In what was a largely 50-50 affair, Sarah Bonareri continued with her impressive goal-scoring record by taking Vikings ahead in the 18th minute with a field goal.

Amira's leading scorer Pauline Naise then squandered a chance to pull her team level seven minutes later, with Vikings' keeper Winnie Kiprop doing well to save the Kenyan international's penalty flick.

Yvonne Madowo ultimately equalized for Amira following a short corner later on but the Chase Bank-sponsored side will have themselves to blame for not recording a win despite a handful of clear chances that went down the drain.

Amira still move to second in the league standings on 34 points, level with third-placed Strathmore who have played two games less and have an inferior goal difference.

In Mombasa, Mombasa Sports Club finally recorded their first win of the season after overcoming fellow strugglers Multimedia University 3-1 on Sunday. 

The hosts took the lead in the 14th minute through Esther Mwikali's converted  penalty flick before Shirlen Nabifwo evened the scores for MMU eight minutes later. Goals from Emma Uchi and Margaret Akinyi were however enough to secure a victory for MSC.

They had a day earlier been held to a barren draw by a visiting University of Nairobi side.

 

Comment

Western Jaguars earned themselves a pole position to remain in top flight league following two crucial wins this weekend in the Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) men’s Premier League.

On Saturday at the City Park Stadium, Jaguars kicked off their weekend with a 3-0 blanking of Sikh Union Nairobi. Goals from Adan Ayuku, Kevin Machindi and Brian Onditi gave the visitors the crucial win in the top-flight encounter.

They then came head-on with Strathmore University Gladiators at the same venue on Sunday, overcoming them 2-0 in an exciting clash.

Wayne Kipkorir opened account for Jaguars five minutes into the game after converting Willis Malesi's short corner to show result of the skillful runs and constant attacks that his side had been executing.

Strathmore then sought immediate response and an equalizer almost came  a minute later, but Jaguars’ shot stopper Gilbert Okanga did well to stop an effort from Festus Onyango.

In the 22nd minute,  Wayne Kipkorir once again showed his importance with his second goal of the day following nice exchange of passes with Mike Malungu. The Western-based side were able to hold on to their lead till the final whistle for a hard-fought victory.

The win takes Jaguars four places up the table standings to 9th with 27 points and are all but assured of a spot in next year's top flight hockey.

Police back to winning ways

League leaders Kenya Police recovered from their 1-0 defeat to Western Jaguars by seeing off Greensharks 2-1 at the City Park Stadium on Sunday December 10, 2017.

Greensharks drew first blood through the usual scorer Chris Wokila in the sixth minute, the Kenyan international finishing off a well-orchestrated move from their backline.

 Police however staged a perfect comeback to avoid a second successive defeat with goals from Amos Barkibir and Calvins Kanu handing them their 21st win of the season.

The victory takes their point tally to 64, 13 ahead of second placed Butali Sugar Warriors.

In other weekend matches, Nakuru condemned Parklands Sports Club to a 3-0 defeat on Saturday as Wazalendo Youth whitewashed bottom placed Karate Axiom 4-0 in a Pool B National Men's League match.

The Kenya Hockey Union Women's Premier League continues this weekend where three matches have been scheduled between Saturday December 9 and Sunday December 10, 2017.

Twin matches for MSC

Mombasa Sports Club will be the busiest side this weekend with two matches against fellow strugglers lined up from them. Sitting second from bottom on the log with only four points, the team will be out for victories that can add on to their point tally.

On Saturday, they host bottom placed University of Nairobi at 15:00. Both sides are currently on a poor run, MSC having lost all of their last eight fixtures while UON remain winless in over fourteen games. The last meeting between these two teams back in May 2017 ended in a 1-1 draw.

MSC then returns to the same venue on Sunday where they have a date with Multimedia University, a side that is just above them on the league standings with seven points. MMU however head into the clash buoyed by a 1-0 victory over Vikings in their last league engagement. 

Amira eye second spot

In another match on Sunday, Chase Amira will be seeking to dethrone USIU-A off the second spot when they tackle Vikings at the City Park Stadium from 17:00. Amira, who are third with 33 points, have won all of their last four games and are unbeaten in their last seven. 

Vikings on the other hand have not recorded a win in their last four games, a result that has seen them drop to seventh place with 20 points from 17 matches. The most recent meeting between these two sides ended in a 2-0 win in favor of Chase Amira.

Comment

Western Jaguars captain Dan Kuya believes that last Saturday's win against league leaders Kenya Police has heightened the morale of the team as they seek to improve their performances in the Kenya Hockey Union Men's Premier League.

Morale booster

Dan scored the only goal of the match in the 45th minute via a penalty corner, a goal that ended Police's 21-match unbeaten streak this season hence slowing down their title march. 

``The win against Kenya Police is our best result so far and a very important one for us given that we are not doing so well in the league standings. But having beaten the leaders, I believe that we are capable of doing the same with other strong opponents,'' a happy Dan told KS.

Vital weekend

On their season targets, the captain insists on a top ten finish and has acknowledged that the two games they have this weekend will go a long way in shaping their table placing. Jaguars take on Sikh Union on Saturday December 9 at the City Park before clashing with USIU a day later at the same venue. If they win the two weekend fixtures, they might leap up to ninth place.

``We are really struggling to make it to the top ten. So basically what we want is to win the two weekend matches that we have so as to be in a better position to achieve that target.''

Home advantage

The Western-based side is currently third from last on the log standings with 21 points from 19 matches and are also in danger of relegation, sitting only one point above 14th placed Kenyatta University. To go up, the team has intensified training and are eyeing wins in all home matches.

``Our training system has changed and become more intense since Monday, which is good for all players and they have been very responsive to that.

``The other target is to use our home ground as an advantage and record victories in all the matches that are played here,'' he added.

Greensharks cut leaders' Kenya Police 15-point lead at the top of the table to twelve thanks to a 2-1 win over Wazalendo in a Kenya Hockey Union Men's Premier League match played on Sunday December 3, 2017 at the City Park Stadium.

Sharks were 1-0 up ten minutes into the match courtesy of Chris Wokila's penalty goal before Elly Mwanzia even the scores in the 34th minute to make the game level again. Sharks however had the last laugh, Chris Mchwanju netting the winning goal in the 44th minute to hand his side their 15th win of the season.

At the same venue, Butali Warriors continued with their impressive run in the second leg by scrapping off USIU Men 1-0., with Emmanuel Simiyu's 40th minute goal proving the sole difference in the tightly challenged clash. This was a continuation of Saturday's 2-1 victory over Strathmore Gladiators and the result means that Butali have won all six of their last league fixtures,  having lost only once in nine matches.

In Nakuru, hosts Nakuru leaped two places up in the league table after downing Chase Sailor 3-0. Eric, Caleb and Kelvin were all on target to ensure that their side moved from tenth to eight place on the log and they now have 26 points from 24 matches.

Chase Amira and Strathmore University Ladies will be battling for the third position on the log standings, with both sides in action on Sunday December 3 in the Kenya Hockey Union Women's Premier League.

Amira vs Sliders

Chase Amira, who have been out of action since November 4, take on Sliders on Sunday at the City Park Hockey Stadium from 12:00.

Amira sit third on the log with 30 points, but might surrender the spot to Strathmore who also have the same number of points if they register nothing short of a win. They however head into the game at the heart of a six-game unbeaten streak, and will also look upon their 3-1 victory over Sliders back in July for motivation.

On their part, Sliders will be on the hunt for triumph on Sunday following two consecutive unsuccessful spells against Amira. The Felix Okoth coached side has also failed to record a win in their last two league fixtures, falling 3-0 to league leaders Telkom before being forced to a 2-2 by Vikings a fortnight ago. They are currently sixth on the table standings with 21 points from 15 games.

Vikings vs Strath

Strathmore ladies take to the pitch at 13:30 for a date with Vikings, with the students eyeing a win to move up the standings to third at the expense of Chase Amira.

They will also be seeking to get back to winning ways following their narrow 3-2 loss to leaders Telkom two weeks ago, a result that scrapped off their ten-match unbeaten streak.

They will however not have it easy against Vikings, who are also hungry for a win to re-discover the right path of their league campaign. The team has not been on the victory list of late, having lost three of their last six fixtures where they have only won once.

The Technical University squandered a golden chance to claim their second win of the season giving in their two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Wazalendo in a Kenya Hockey Union Men's Premier League match played on Wednesday evening at the City Park Stadium.

TUK, who went into the match at the heart of a twelve-match winless run, took the lead 13 minutes into the match through skipper  Moses Obushuru's strike, their first goal since October 18th. Leonard Marwa  then doubled the lead just past the half hour mark in what was proving to be a good evening for the students.

A lapse in concentration two minutes later however halved their scores, Job Omondi pulling one back for Wazalendo with a wonderful shot that caught TUK's keeper unawares. Elly Mwanzi made it 2-2 in the 39th minute and despite visitors pushing out for a winner, they were unable to get one and had to settle for a point.

The draw takes Wazalendo's point tally to 36, maintaining fifth spot on the table standings while TUK remain rock bottom with only seven points.

Up next for Wazalendo is a clash against Greensharks on Sunday December 3 while TUK take on Strathmore a week later.

 

Comment

One match in the Kenya Hockey Union men's Premier League will be played on Wednesday November 29, Wazalendo taking on Technical University at the City Park Hockey Stadium from 18:00.

Wazalendo

Following two successive defeats, Wazalendo head into the match hungry for a win that will get them back to their feet as they seek to catch up with the four teams that are already ahead of them.

The Evans Bwogando coached side received a 4-1 thrashing by Strathmore before going down 4-3 to Parkroad Badgers in a tightly contested affair a week later.

The team is currently fifth on the log standings with 35 points from 20 games, three points adrift of USIU-A Men who occupy fourth spot with 38 points.

They has so far managed to accrue ten wins, five draws and five losses.

TUK

Technical University head into the game at the heart of a seven-game winless streak and will be hoping to give Wazalendo a run for their time.

Having only tasted one win this season, TUK have lost 17 matches, the most of any team this campaign and hence lie at the bottom of the league table with only six points.

Head-to head

The two sides have met once this year, with Wazalendo bagging three points thanks to a 2-0 win back in April 2017.

 

Comment

Parkroad Badgers finally got back to winning ways on Sunday November 26 following a 4-3 win over Wazalendo in an enticing match played at the City Pak Stadium.

Parkroad, who had lost all three of their previous games, fell behind five minutes into the match after Kennedy Munialolo scored for Wazalendo. Parkroad equalized four minutes later through Andrew Kamau but found themselves trailing again in the 22nd minute, Kennedy scoring his second goal of the afternoon for Wazalendo. 

Andrew however proved once again came to the rescue for Parkroad with a quick brace that took his side leading for the first time and as a result secured him a hat-trick. 

Although Joab Malanda leveled the scores for Wazalendo in the 36th minute, Brian Shilton's 54th minute effort grabbed the victory for Parkroad in the tightly contested match. 

The result takes Parkroad to 6th place on the log standings with 32 points while Wazalendo remain fifth with 35 points. 

Police march on

On Saturday, Kenya Police took their lead at the top of the men's table to 61 points following a narrow 1-0 win over a resilient USIU side. Skipper Oliver Echenje's goal in the 36th minute secured the vital win for the law enforcers to extend their unbeaten streak to 21 this season.

Sailors end woeful run

Chase Sailors were also on the winning end on Saturday, overcoming Sikh Union 2-1 to record their first win in five matches. Nixon and Douglas found the back of the net for Sailors while Inderjit scored the consolation goal for Sikh Union.

 

Comment

League leaders Telkom Orange added spice to their impressive 2017 season with a comfortable  6-0 drubbing of United States International University of Africa (USIU-A) Spartans in a Kenya Hockey Union women's Premier League match played on Sunday November 26 at the City Park Stadium.

In the opening minutes, USIU looked like the better opponents with a majority share of possession and good passing skills around the watery turf as they sought to break their opponents' defense as early as possible.

As time slowly went by, Telkom found rhythm and started displaying their usual commanding play, with Barbara Simiyu opening account for them in the 20th minute before Flavia Mutiva adding a second one nine minutes later.

The two goals seemed to have demoralized USIU whose attacks were foiled from as far as the midfield area, with all hits pointing to their goalpost. 

 In the 40th minute, Audrey Omaido tripled the lead for Telkom with a well-taken strike and in what quickly turned from a balanced affair to an onslaught, Jane Ofula added herself into the score sheet with a goal in the 42nd minute before Jackie Mwangi's quick brace sealed the 6-0 victory for the reigning champions.

MMU Down Vikings

In an earlier match at the same venue, Multimedia University bagged their second win of the season following a shock 3-1 win over Vikings.

MMU, who had on Saturday held University of Nairobi to a 1-1 draw, got the lead in the 7th minute through Rachel Nduta before Winnie Wanyoike doubled it eight minutes later. 

Vikings sought to get back into the game and Sarah Bonareri surely initiated that with a goal in the 45th minute but Winnie sealed her brace in the hour mark to put the match beyond Vikings.

The win takes MMU's point tally to seven, placing them tenth on the overall league standings.

Hockey action in the country continues this weekend, with several teams from the men's Premier League, Ladies Premier League and men's National League scheduled to play in different venues.

Men's

In the men's Premier League, leaders Kenya Police will be seeking to extend their stay at the summit when they come up against USIU-A on Saturday at the City Park Stadium from 18:00. USIU will however not be an easy side given the fact that they have not lost any of their last four games.

There will be an earlier fixture pitting a struggling Chase Sailors side against Sikh Union at the same venue from 14:00. 

Ladies

In the Ladies category, a mouth watering clash is up on Sunday when the two top sides, Telkom and USIU clash at 11:00. While Telkom sit at the top of the log with 42 points, USIU are second with 34 but have played a game less. The leaders however tower high over their opponents in terms of statistics, having beaten them 6-1 back in August 2016 before humbling  them 10-0 in March this year.

Vikings will also be in action on Sunday against Multimedia University as they seek to get back to winning ways. Their latest result was a 2-2 draw against Sliders which put them in position seven with 20m points. Mulitmedia on the other hand have lost all five of their last fixtures and lie second last with only three points.

Comment

In a match that ended prematurely due to a power blackout, Greensharks propelled themselves to second place in the table standings following a 2-0 win over Chase Sailors in a Kenya Hockey Union men's premier league match on Wednesday November 22 at the City Park Hockey Stadium.

Sharks bagged the important victory courtesy of goals by Chris Wokila and Dave Kibe's penalty stroke, which extended their dominance over the struggling Sailors side.

 The match was however not played till the final whistle due to a rare blackout at the stadium with slightly two minutes left on the clock, prompting both sides to mutually agree on ending the game.

The win takes them to second place with 46 points at the expense of Butali Warriors who as a result slide to third. The result is on the other hand a growing worry for Sailors, who have not recorded a win in their last four matches.

 

Comment

On Wednesday November 22 at 18:00, Greensharks take on Chase Sailors in a Kenya Hockey Union Men's Premier League match at the City Park Hockey Stadium.

For both sides, the three points at stake are very important as they will surely have an impact in the overall look of the table standings.

Greensharks, who are currently third on the log with 43 points, go into the game well informed that a victory will see them hop up to second place at the expense of Butali Warriors. 

Sailors on their part will be even more hungrier given that they have not picked out even a single win in their last three fixtures. T

hey suffered a 3-1 loss in the hands of KCA University before being forced to a barren draw by USIU and most recently surrendered 3-0 to Butali Warriors on Sunday. 

The dip in form sees them sit tenth on the table standings with 22 points from the same number of games.

In terms of head-to head, Greensharks command the better share of points, having won 4-1 in one match in the two meetings while the other ended in a 3-3 draw.

 

Comment

Sliders tactician Felix Okoth has lamented on his side's number of wasted chances, stating that that is the sole reason why they were forced to a 2-2 draw by Vikings on Sunday November 19 at the City Park Stadium.

Charity Miller had taken Sliders ahead in the 12th minute but her goal was cancelled out by Grace Onimbo's strike fourteen minutes. Aurelia then took Vikings up for the first time in the match in 42nd minute and just as the game seemed to be going to their direction, Slider's substitute Christine Mmbone stroke late on to rescue atleast a point for her team. 

The match was however largely dominated by Sliders, who unfortunately failed to convert most of the chances they got even from close range.

``This match has been different from the last one because our energy at some point went low despite having lots of chances to convert and get a win. So I personally believe that we have room for improvement and we will definitely have a different approach to the next matches,'' said Okoth.

Up next for Sliders, who are currently sixth on the log with 21 points, is a match against Chase Amira on Sunday December 3, 2017 at the City Park Stadium.

Butali Sugar Warriors kept their title hopes alive this weekend with two precious victories in the Kenya Hockey Union men's Premier League.

After humbling Nairobi Sikh Union 3-1 at the City Park on Saturday November 18, Butali continued with their impressive second leg displays with a 3-0 win over Chase Sailors at the same venue. Emmanuel Simiyu struck two quick goals in the 7th  and 11th minute respectively before Arif Shah's 29th minute effort gave the lakeside club three points and three goals.

The match was then followed by the one pitting league leaders Kenya Police against Parkroad Badgers where the law enforces strode to a comfortable 4-0 win.

Samuel Wokila, Amos Barkibir, Moses Cheplaiti and Calvins Kanu were all on target for the hosts in the victory which took their point tally to 58 from 20 games. They now leave second placed Butali Warriors with thirteen points, though the latter has played a game less.

In other matches, Nakuru Sports Club settled to a barren draw with bottom placed Technical University on Saturday as Bay Club suffered two straight defeats in the hands of Multimedia University and Wazalendo Youth.

 

 

Comment

There were two Kenya Hockey Union Premier League matches played this weekend at the City Park Stadium, with Vikings forcing Sliders to a 2-2 draw as league leaders Telkom Orange held on firmly to secure a 3-2 win over a tactical Strathmore University side.

Telkom vs Strathmore

Despite leading 3-0, Telkom Orange had to hold on strong in the dying minutes as Strathmore, who had returned two goals, fought hard to find an equalizer but were unlucky to get one.

Telkom had gone into the match with a record of victories in all their opening 13 matches which they had not conceded even a single goal and looked on course to make light work of the Students, Jacqueline Mwangi opening account for them in the 7th minute after she had been spotted by Lilian Aura from long range.

Following the goal, the match's pace then slowed down as both sides sought to cut out the opposite's possession and passes especially on both wings, Gilly Okumu proving a constant nightmare to the Telkom defense with her beautiful runs and pace.

Barbara Simiyu however doubled the lead for the leaders in the 26th minute, smashing the ball into the net after being teed up by teammate Glen Namajole who had foiled Scorpions' pass in their own half.

Barely ten minutes later, Telkom were 3-0 up courtesy of Barbara Simiyu's second goal that opened a healthy lead for her side as the match went into the break.

On resumption, it was all a Strathmore affair as the Students sought to offer replies and were rewarded in the 44th minute, Okumu's shot hitting the post to find Dennise Bila who hurriedly slotted in amid an increasing Telkom defense. The goal was the first for Telkom to concede since 24th July 2016.

Barbra Atigo then further reduced the deficit eight minutes later with a goal that set up an exciting finish to the encounter. Luck was however not on the hosts' side as they failed to notch an equalizer despite frantic efforts, with the match ending 3-2 in favor of Telkom.

Vikings vs Sliders

In an earlier match at the same venue, Sliders and Vikings played out 2-2 draw in a match that was largely a balanced affair.

Charity Miller took Sliders ahead in the 12th minute but her goal was cancelled out by Grace Onimbo's strike fourteen minutes. Aurelia then took Vikings up for the first time in the match in 42nd minute and just as the game seemed to be going to their direction, Slider's substitute Christine Mmbone stroke late on to force a 2-2 draw between the two sides.

Comment

Parkroad Badgers digested their second successive defeat in the Kenya Hockey Union Men’s Premier League on Wednesday November 15 following a 2-0 humbling by Butali Warriors at the City Park Stadium.

Parkroad, who came into the match at the back of a similar loss to Green sharks a fortnight ago, fell behind at the half hour mark through veteran Saidi Okwemba’s strike which put Butali 1-0 up.

The Kenya Hockey Union men's Premier League continued this weekend where a total of five matches took place, with four of them ending in positive results while one reproduced a draw.

Jaguars with mixed results

It was a weekend of mixed results for contrasting results for Western Jaguars, who went down 3-0 to Greensharks on Saturday before beating Kenyatta University Vultures 2-1 on Sunday at the City Park Stadium.

A brace from Chris Wokila added onto Kevin Simiyu's 9th minute goal to hand second placed Greensharks their 13th win of the season which improved their point tally to 43.

Jaguars then sought a reply a day later against K.U and Willis Malusi surely got them started with a goal in the 14th minute which took them 1-0 up. They were however forced into defense as K.U launched attacks on them on several occasions but were not clinical to find the back of the net.

The students however got the equalizer through Saul Maina on 43 minutes to take the  game back level. With the match seemingly headed for a draw, Ian Baron navigated his way past a couple of opponents to smash home the winner with five minute left to play, much t the excitement of Jaguars' bench.

Police, Sikh record wins

Kenya Police meanwhile maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a compelling 2-0 win over Nakuru away at the Greensteds grounds, Nakuru on Saturday. The league leaders now leave second placed Jaguars with a cool nine points, having played four games fewer.

After losing two straight matches, Sikh Union finally breathed a sigh of relief with a hard earned 3-2 victory over Strathmore, who had edged Parklands SC 2-0 on Saturday. 

KCA University also bragged of a win after sailing past TUK in a 2-0 win. The match between Chase Sailors and USIU Men ended in a barren draw.

This weekend saw three league matches played in the Kenya Hockey Union women's Premier League, with Strathmore, USIU and leaders Telkom all recording victories in their respective assignments.

Telkom go five points clear

Champions Telkom went five point clear at the summit of the Kenya Hockey Union women's Premier League table following a 3-0 win over a stubborn  Sliders side on Sunday November 12 at the City Park Stadium, Nairobi..

Sliders, who headed into the match at the back of three consecutive victories, sought to contain the league leaders right from the start but fell short six minutes into the game when Georgina Lumumba opened account for the hosts with a well taken strike from the edge which went past keeper Catherine Opicha.

The game then turned into a balanced affair as both sides foiled each other's moves especially on the wings. Telkom however got the better of their opponents once again, Terry Juma smashing home her team's second with only seconds left in the third quarter.

Lillian Aura then sealed the victory in the 49th minute after capitalizing on Sliders' defensive errors to put the ball into the net for a 3-0 lead.

The win takes Telkom's point tally to 39, five more than second placed USIU Ladies. Sliders meanwhile remain sixth with 20 points from 14 games.

Scorpions, USIU also victorious

On Saturday, USIU had edged closer to Telkom after overcoming Vikings 2-0 at the City Park Stadium, which was 11th win of the season. Rhoda Kuira's goal in the 30th minute and another one from Sandra Vodoti twelve minutes later gave the students the precious win.

On the same day, Strathmore were also on the winning end, humbling JKUAT 5-0 at the same venue.

Kenya internationals Gilly Okumu and Carol Njoki each bagged a brace with Diana Akinyi adding herself on the score sheet to complete the 5-0 rout. The result takes them to position four on the table with 30 points while JKUAT stagnate in 5th with 25 points.

Comment

National women hockey team captain Lillian Aura has stated that they have collectively  set a target of qualifying for the World Cup when they participate in the Africa Cup of Nation championship which kicks off on Sunday in Ismailia, Egypt.

``The training has been tough because we always came early and left at 8pm and get home late after undergoing intense physical and technical work. But it is good because it has made us very ready for the tournament,'' she said.

``We want to stick to our game plan, work towards our strengths and also try countering what our opponents bring to the table. So the idea is to stick to what we have been working on and stay disciplined with a lot of team work. 

``Our main target is to qualify for the World Cup. We have a good team of players and with teawork, we are going to do everything we can to meet our target, added the captain.

The week-long competition, which has brought six nations, will also act as a 2018 World Cup qualifier. The winning men and women's teams will represent the continent at next year's global showpiece in India (men) and UK (women).

The women face a daunting task on Sunday when they take on defending champions South Africa, who have already qualified for the World Cup after finishing fifth in the World League Series in August. They will then face arch-rivals Ghana in their second matchbe fore following it up with fixtures against  Nigeria, Zambia and Egypt.

Comment

Ahead of the Africa Cup of Nation championship which kicks off on Sunday in Ismailia, Egypt, National hockey team coach and captain are confident of recording good results and even coming back with the top medal.

Speaking to KS, mens' coach Meshack Senge  stated that his side has adequaletly prepared for the tournament and will be going for the gold medal.

``We have had a fourteen-week training period in which we had a very comprehensive programme to see us qualify for the World Cup and the boys have responded very well to training.

``The team has seven new call ups but they are not very new players because they have previously trained with the national team but did not make the cut. So there is a very good understanding between them and the regulars which we have enhanced by working on things like team cohesion,'' he commented on the new additions.

``We have set out targets in two sets; Our first target is to qualify for the finals and our second is to win the gold. So we will first work to qualifying for the finals and then fight for the gold.''

Speaking on the assistance that the Federation has accorded them, Senge reiterated that they have been given maximum support to enable them head to Egypt without much issues.

``We are here because of the Federation. It has facilitated us in all that we asked and we understand where we are in terms of the Federation. So the fact that we are going means that someone has done his job in the Federation and I want to commend the for that.''

On his part, team captain Maxwell Fuchaka also affirmed on the need to bag gold and called on his teammates not to be afraid of facing different countries.

``The mood is superb; we are just waiting for the tournament. We have been training for the last five months and despite playing for different team in the league, everyone has gelled together and understood the style of play.

``We have tried helping them realize our objectives and explained to them that even the hockey being played outside there is just the same as the way we do.

``We are definitely going for gold. It will not just be a trip outside the country,'' he finished.

The men’s team start their campaign against Ghana on Sunday October 22.
