Kakamega High school’s Green Commandoes opened the national schools’ soccer national campaign on with a positive start beating Kibirichia High school from Eastern Province 4 goals to 1 as the national games kicked off in Mombasa on Tuesday.

Michael Gavoji scored a brace for the former champions in each half with the other goals coming through Sammy Meja from a penalty and Baron Jobita against run of play.

Three of the Kakamega goals were scored in the second half with national U-20 team striker Timothy Otieno playing assists to the three goals. Otieno who joined camp in Mombasa on Sunday from the national team camp was introduced as a second half substitute.

Team coach Hezbon Nyabinge said the positive start by his team is a good indication that they have the power and character to regain their lost glory.

“We had a good start. It is important to finish our group games with maximum positive results because this will greatly boost our morale.” Hezbon said.
