Record 12 times national Champions and pre tournament favourites Kakamega high’s Green Commandos have been eliminated in the semis by 2013 Champions Upper Hill in a pulsating encounter.
Both sides came with guns blazing in an evenly contested encounter that saw the strikers from either sides keeping the keepers so busy.
It was a repeat of 2012 semis when Upperhill edged past Kakamega’s green commandos via a solitary goal from Michael Olunga
Once again, fans had every reason to rub their hands in glee. Kakamega’s Green Commandos had been entertaining them with some tiki taka football. Granted, they might not possess the deftness of your world-class players, but when their midfield maestro James Mazembe completed a string of uninterrupted passes, jubilation filled the air.
Kakamega’s defenders had also remained stoic in their business, while their strikers have stood up to be counted.
That is why they remained unbeaten after three rounds of matches as they chased their unprecedented 13th title in vain
This game was a flamboyant testimony that our representatives Kanga School were equally upto the task given that they managed to hold, and even earn a goal against this mighty side from Nairobi, Upper Hill
The finals will now see former East African and 5 times national Champions St Anthony’s Kitale lock horns with 2013 Champions, Upper Hill in a case of renewed rivalry.(the two teams drew 1-1 in the group stage) and will now prove to the nation who’s mightier.
We shall start with third place play off tomorrow to decide on which teams will represent us in Uganda.
The talent showcased by these young Boys especially in soccer would make the KPL appear like an infantile prank.
We wish these Boys well.
