Champions Butali were relegated to the third spot with seven points although it is worth noting that, the sugar men who were on top before last weekend’s matches, were not in action.

The Kenya Police hockey team rose to the summit of the men’s Premier League after stunning Sailors 4-1 last weekend at the City Park Stadium.

The big win saw the 2017 champions scale from the second slot to the top one with ten points garnered from four matches.

A brace from Titus Kimutai and field goals from Govan Mbeki and Kennedy Sibweche reduced Abraham Musee’s goal from a short corner to a mere consolation.

Wazalendo are breathing behind the backs of the law enforcers with eight points. This is after downing USIU-A Mashujaa 2-0 last Sunday at City Park.

The students had suffered a 2-0 defeat to Western Jaguars on Saturday, making their start of life in the campaign a sour one as prior to last weekend, they had not tasted action in the season.

Succlife Usagi and John Rioba were on target for Wazalendo who have played six matches this season. 

Jaguars won the three points courtesy of goals from Oscar Kibet and Job Wandera who both scored from the field.

Champions Butali were relegated to the third spot with seven points although it is worth noting that, the sugar men who were on top before last weekend’s matches, were not in action.

All the teams in the men’s league have points to show for apart from Mashujaa who sit at the bottom.

 


In the women’s league, record champions Blazers lost 1-0 to Lakers on Saturday in Kisumu.

Maureen Achieng scored the all-important goal for Lakers who remained placed fourth despite the win over the former champions.

Holders Strathmore University Scorpions remained on top with eleven points despite being out of action last weekend. Blazers are second with nine points.

Amira missed out on the opportunity to go joint top after playing USIU-A Spartans to a one-all draw at City Park.

Naomi Kemunto was on target for Spartans while national team captain Gilly Okumu scored for Amira.

Parkroad Badgers and Sliders remained on top of the men’s and women’s Super League tables with 13 and 15 points respectively.

GHF Rift Pirates and Bay Club boss the nationwide Eastern and Western zone leagues respectively.
