It was not a most exciting sporting weekend to Kisumu Sports enthusiasts save for one club, Kisumu Hot Stars. Fans of this Division One side will cherish having registered an impressive 2-0 win against league debutants Sindo United in a FKF Division One Zone B league opener. Scoring through George Mapesa and Gordon Okeya on Saturday- and under a new Coach in Ambrose Otieno Hot Stars look well and ready for the new season.
K.H.U Women’s Premier League.
Hockey queens, Lakers HC had a weekend they would all want to forget having been subjected to two consecutive defeats at the hands of the United States International University (USIU) and Sailors. Lakers lost both matches with a 2-1 margin.
Basketball Premier League.
Kisumu Lakeside Basketball Club found themselves in murky waters at the coast to Kenya Ports Authority after suffering a humiliating 81-54 defeat, the defeat makes playoffs chances slim as they have to manage a win against USIU this coming weekend.
Kenya Women Premier League.
Kisumu All Starlets had a tough outing against defending champions Vihiga Queens. Starlets, who headed into the Sunday tie with a few key players out, welcomed back Bertha Omita and Airo Mercy from the national team but found little going for them against defending champions Vihiga Queens. Coach Juma Saidi’s charges, however, put up a valiant fight to the end. They sit 5th on the Premier League table standings.
