Friends College Kaimosi Trounce Keroka to Lift Football Crown

Friends College Kaimosi beat Keroka TTI 2-0 to retain the Kenya Technical Training Colleges men’s soccer title. Michael Isabwa and Moses Mudavadi scored for FCK in either half to give them the deserved victory in the match that was played at Jomo Kenyatta grounds in Kisumu on Wednesday.

Keroka must, however, blame themselves for wasting several scoring chances against FCK team captained by Amwai Jackton. In the semis, FCK overcame Kaiboi 2-1 while Keroka narrowly beat Rift Valley Institute of Science and Technology 1-0. RVIST edged Kaiboi 1-0 in the third place play off. In the special category, Karen beat Sikri 2-1.

Sigalagala thrashed FCK 4-1 to lift the men’s hockey title. Allan Malik scored twice while Rodgers Simiyu and Wycliffe Wanyonyi were also on target for Sigalagala. Gerald Wekesa pulled one back for FCK. Rift Valley Technical Training Institute clincheacute;d the women’s title after garnering 10 points with 14 goals. FCK placed second with 10 points and 12 goals while Ol’Lessos were third with six points. The event was graced by Kisumu County Sports and Youth executive Jennifer Kere and Bashir Mursal, the director Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).

Kere warned against the use of performance enhancing drugs in sports. She also cautioned against fielding ineligible players during games meant for students. “We should let students participate in games meant for them instead of hiring players from clubs,” she said. At the same time, Kettiso chairman Evans Bosire has announced his retirement.
