Clash Of the Titans.
Former Kenya Handball Federation (KHF) champions Ulinzi HC suffered a shock defeat to Kenyatta University (K.U) HC in their last men’s league match and as they take on General Service Unit (GSU) on Sunday 1 August, many wait to see whether the K.U loss was a slip-up or the military side’s ship is sinking.
Ulinzi’s loss to K.U came on the back of a 23-21 slim win against hard-fighting Buccaneers and now they are faced with yet another acid test as to whether their dominance is being challenged.
GSU who have recruited heavily after their debut last season was unimpressive, have gone six matches unbeaten. The Allan Odhiambo-coached Soldiers picked their win in an edge-of-the-seat encounter pitting former champions National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) to set a precedence for upsets.
“We have had weaknesses especially on our wings but we have worked on that and will be ready for Ulinzi. We are not underrating them neither are we afraid, we approach the game with the respect the opponent deserves and give it our all. For us it is one match at a time as we look to finish in the top three for a chance to play in the Super Cup,” said GSU captain Mark Barasa.
