Strathmore University women team head coach Meshack Senge is looking to build on their big win over Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) as the hockey season kicked off in earnest at the weekend.

The Scorpions thrashed fellow students JKUAT 9-0 at the City Park to send shock waves in a league that has for long been dominated by serial winners Telkom.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Senge pointed out that the huge win was propelled by his charges ability to strictly adhere and execute the games tactical plan.

“We have a new format which we are trying to implement and it worked well for us. However, that was just one game and we hope to continue on the same note since the season has just begun,’” said Senge.

Having finished as runners-up last season behind defending champions Telkom, Senge has outlined his desire to fight for the elusive title.

“Our aim is to be the best. Last season we could not achieve that but this time round we will also try to put our best foot forward and see what happens. We will take each game at a time,” added Senge.
