Cereals are in pool A with Strathmore, Kenyatta University and Multi Media University. They will face Kenyatta University on Sunday morning from 9:30 am in their second pool game.

Peter Mwathi the Strathmore coach was pleased by his side’s performance despite the loss and was sure they could recover in the next match, “my boys really played well and I am glad we frustrated Cereals the five goal margin should not really worry us because we pushed them and they were under more pressure compared to us. I am sure in the next game we will get a win.”
