Greensharks and Strathmore University Scorpions reclaimed second spot in their respective men and women’s Kenya Hockey Union leagues after round of matches played at the weekend.

However, men’s champions Strathmore University Gladiators lost their sixth game of the season, dropping to the 13th place in the standings.

Greensharks, who are eying a top two finish this season, claimed a hard fought 2-0 win over Kenyatta University (KU) Vultures to relegate Butali Sugar Warriors to third. Victor Osiche and Chris Muchwanju scored to give the Sharks the three points moving them 30 points from 14 matches, seven behind league leaders Kenya Police.

SECOND LEG BECKONS

It was Sharks last match of the first leg and the team’s coach Ben Owaga admits he is satisfied so far with the team’s display.

“Second position at the end of our last first leg match is a good achievement, the challenge will be to maintain the same form in the second leg which will be tougher,” Owaga said on Monday.

Butali, who were not in action this weekend, are a point back in third place. Wazalendo are in fourth place after a mixed weekend. They beat Parkroad Badgers 2-1 on Saturday before they lost 5-0 to the 2012 champions Sikh Union Nairobi.
