Hockey: Strathmore ladies thrash Kampala

Strathmore University ladies thrashed Kampala Hockey Club of Uganda 11-0 in the ongoing Africa Hockey Club Championships in Lugogo National Hockey Stadium in Kampala, Uganda.


The Kenyan girls, making their second appearance in the continental showpiece, made their intentions known from the first whistle, dominating the entire match.


Strathmore head coach Meshack Senge told FeverPitch: “We played according to our plan but there is still room for improvement.” “We lost many scoring  chances and we need to work on that for our next match,” he added. Lucy Wanjiku put the students in the lead with her 11th minute field goal from a Laura Gichau pass.


Wanjiku then scored four more goals in the 35th, 57th and 60th minutes before Vyvonne Wanjiku netted a hattrick in the 15th, 48th and 53rd minutes. Laura Gichau made sure her name was on the score sheet scoring in the 18th minute goal. Linda Ayodi, Caroline Njoki and Eva Nkatha scored a goal each to seal their big victory.
