“Today’s match was very challenging but I am glad we made it to the finals. One of my players got a red card at the 26th minute therefore; I had only 10 players for the rest of the match. It took some effort to get back to the game but yes, we did it! We are looking forward to a good game tomorrow”, said Fred Serenge, Coach – Bishop Njenga.
