Hockey: Sliders fail to see off JKUAT students

HOCKEY By Elizabeth Mburugu | November 25th 2018

Sliders hopes of registering a third victory in the ongoing Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) women’s Premier League were dashed yesterday after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture at Technology (JKUAT) at City Park. 

Sliders have had a tough season and are currently one place above relegation with eight points.

They have registered two victories, two draws and seven losses  and have one match remaining.

Coach Liner Onyango said that they faced challenges as a team that affected their performance. “We salvaged a point but we did not play well.

“We lost clear chances as well as short corners that if we properly utilised we would have secured victory.

Not being able to train together as a team this season was our major undoing.

“We have one match remaining and we look forward to ending the season with victory,” Onyango said.
