Blazers tipped to reclaim hockey crown

Blazers tipped to reclaim hockey crown

Butali Warriors are perched atop of the men’s Premier League table with 32 points, five ahead of the Kenya Police team.

Record champions Blazers are three victories away from reclaiming the Kenya Hockey Union Women’s Premier League title.

Blazers lost the title last season to Strathmore University Scorpions but it appears that the former champions will reclaim it this season.

Rose Mbulo’s charges sit at the apex with 27 points, ten ahead of the second-placed Lakers who finished third last season, their first in the top flight.

With Blazers having four matches remaining, three wins will be enough to give them unassailable lead.

Lakers have 17 points against their name and further, the Kisumu-based club has six matches remaining in the campaign.

The best tally Lakers can have this season is 35 points if they win the remaining six matches. Should Blazers win their next three matches, they will have 36 points.

Amira Sailors are ranked third with 16 points from twelve rounds while holders Scorpions are fourth on the log with 15 points from ten matches.

University of Nairobi sit at the rock bottom with a point from five matches. If they win the remaining nine matches, they will have 28 points which will definitely save them from dropping to the Super League.

Meanwhile, Butali Warriors are perched atop of the men’s Premier League table with 32 points, five ahead of the Kenya Police team.

Police have however played a game more than the defending champions who have been impressive throughout the season.

Western Jaguars are third with 25 points from eleven matches while Wazalendo are fourth with 18 points.

Abraham Mosee of Sailors is the leading scorer in the men’s league courtesy of the five goals he has scored thus far.

He is followed closely by the duo of Calvins Kanu and Festus Onyango both of Butali and whop, have three goals against their names.

Maureen Ongoche of Scorpions tops the women’s league scoring chart with three goals, one ahead of her teammate Diana Awino.

Kenyan international Gilly Okumu who ditched Scorpions for Amira Sailors before the season began has two goals as well.
