Riara football team ‘payback’ by thrashing daystar in universities soccer league
RU football team ran riot on Sunday, dressing down Daystar University with a 5:0 win. This was after a 1:0 loss to Technical University on Saturday in the currently ongoing Kenya Universities Sports Association tournaments. The team drove hard with a 60% ball possession in the first half; Daystar put a spirited come back in the second half but were not lucky to score any goal even though the team managed to level the ball possession to a 50:50.
Dennis Murutaru netted hat trick 3 goals for RU while Kiage Mwenda and Francis Opakasi scored one goal each.
“We attribute the win to commitment, passion of the players and the target the team has to proceed to the National Universities games, as well as the East Africa Universities tournament next year.” Said Owen Makokha, RU football coach.
