Parklands reach Nairobi hockey semis

HOCKEY By Elizabeth Mburugu | March 9th 2015

Dr Ribeiro Parklands School beat Highway 6-2 to book a semi-final place in the hunt for Nairobi Secondary Schools Sports Association (NSSSA) hockey title.

Parklands joined defending champions Lenana School who had qualified for the semifinals earlier on and Nairobi School who earned a 3-1 win over Starehe Boys.

The fourth semifinalist will be decided in pool A when third placed Upper Hill meet Starehe who are second with four points this weekend. A win for either team will see the victor in the semis while a draw will favour Starehe as they will remain second with five points, two more than Upper Hill.

Parklands head coach Eric Nyamweya told FeverPitch that their main objective this season is to play in the nationals. "We want to be in the nationals, we have been working on it since we were bundled out of the race last year at the county level."

He said being in the semis is a great improvement and proof that their strategies are working as they finished sixth in the county last year. 

In the girls' category, St Georges and Ngara entered the quarter-finals following a successful weekend out. St Georges laboured at the weekend to win all their matches. St Georges and Ngara join champions Moi Girls Nairobi, Pangani, Hillcrest, Buruburu, Mt Larvena and Parklands Arya in the knockout stage.
