Champions Nairobi Water Queens coach Jack Ochieng said his defence is still a work in progress despite drowning Amazon 40-16 in a Kenya Handball Federation (KHF) women’s league clash at Nyayo National Stadium.
The 10-time women's champions, who are yet to taste defeat in a decade, took a 19-6 at the break. They moved to another gear in the last half to improve on their impressive goal aggregate.
“It was an easy game and most of the new players in the team really enjoyed playing this game. But I am still working on the defence,” offered the long-serving tactician.
Gladys Chilo led the scoring tally with 10 goals, Brenda Musambai hit nine, Cecilia Katheu shot eight and Brenda Arivisa had five. Christine Mwirigi made seven and Nelly Kharisa added four.
National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) blanked New Hope 49-6. The Millers raced to a 17-4 half-time cushion and allowed the losers to hit the target only twice after the break.
“It wasn't a difficult game apart from the rains that interfered with play. Despite the wet weather conditions, my players were able to express themselves well. Arnette Barasa who joined us during the transfer period is settling well in the club,” said coach Bryan Mathews.
Sarah Mabonga tallied 12 goals, new signing Annette Barasa scored nine, Sharon Akoth managed six and Joan Akinyi bagged five in the rout. The losers Timminah Barasa and Ayan Deno registered two each.
In the men's matches, Randy Ochieng shot 13 goals but it was not enough to stop the Buccaneers, who dimmed Desert Scorpions 36-35 after tying 19-19 at halftime.
Martin Orera shot seven goals while Jones Amollo had six and Robin Musoni five. Young City pipped newcomers Hunters 33-29 after taking a 16-9 lead at halftime.
Dickson Mayange nailed eight goals and Danstan Shamalla seven. The losers had 14 from George Liru and 10 from Edward Wanyonyi.
Another newcomer Nanyuki made a flying start in their first game, hitting Spartan 24-23. Both sides tied 12-all at the break. Samson Kiprop scored eight and Evanson Ngoberam seven for the winners. Patet Macharia had the losers' six.
