Blazers Hockey Club’s hopes of finishing in the 2nd position looked possible after defeating their old rivals Sliders. There was only 1 match pitting JKUAT and Kisumu Youngstars who shared spoils.
Sliders continued to slide to the bottom of the table while Blazers are propelling to finish second after their 2-0 win against them. Joan Anjao’s penalty conversion in the 15th minute and Barbara Simiyu’s 59th-minute field goal are what Blazers needed to be just a point behind 2nd placed Lakers who have 21 points.
MSC will go back home with no point this weekend as they lost in the early kick-off against 2nd-placed Western Jaguars 3-1. Bethuel Masambu scored 2 goals in the 27th and 49th minutes of the game. The 3rd goal was scored by Richard Njuki. The lone goal for MSC was scored by James Omondi in the 28th minute.
