Christopher Mayende top-scored for the paramilitary side with five goals, while Maxwell Munene emerged the highest scorer for the varsity side with eight goals.

GSU coach Victor Siero conceded defeat.

Our coordination, blunt attacks and poor ball handling skills were our main undoing. I have been with the team for only two months and that’s not enough to study the players, but I hope that next weekend we will have a better outing,” said the former Kenya men’s national team captain.

Siero offered that Phillip Eskei, who dislocated his neck during the match, is in stable condition having been rushed to the hospital.

Strathmore coach Peter Mwathi said his team had achieved what they had set out to do and what will follow will be a bonus.

The lads played well today. They showed character and going forward we want to build on that,” said Mwathi.
