Falling Waters FC & Ulinzi Youth Win Chapa Dimba Central Regional Finals

By Soko Directory Team / January 20, 2020 | 10:18 am




Falling Waters FC from Laikipia and Ulinzi Youth from Nanyuki both beat their opponents 3-1 to become Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Central Region champions.

Falling Waters beat Limuru Starlets to defend their title through a Miriam Lutomia goal in the 9th minute and a brace from Jane Njeri in the 65th and 74th minute, with Joy Kanja scoring a consolation goal for Limuru Starlets from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute.

“Today’s game was tough, but watching our opponents play yesterday enabled us to anticipate their tactics, which helped us to emerge victoriously. Being the top scorer is a result of teamwork and without my team, I wouldn’t have scored any goal,” said Jane Njeri, top scorer and Falling Waters FC player.

In the boys’ category, Clinton Sheitara scored an early goal for JYSA in the 9th minute but Ulinzi Youth came from behind with goals in the 29th, 34th and 72nd minute scored by Kafero Brian, Lenkai Emmanuel, and Akmat Kelvin respectively.

“I approach each game differently depending on the opponent. After yesterday’s semifinal, I went back to the drawing board to strategize on how we would play today and I am glad that we were successful. We shall not rest with this win, our objective now shifts to bringing home the national title,” said Vincent Otieno, Ulinzi FC Coach.

The winning teams, Falling Waters and Ulinzi Youth, each received KES 200,000 and will represent the Central region at the national finals set for June 2020 at Bomu Stadium, Mombasa, where KES 1 Million is at stake. Runners up JYSA FC and Limuru Starlets walked away with KES 100,000 each.

North Eastern’s Berlin FC (Garissa), Coast region’s Yanga FC (Malindi) and Kwale Ladies have already booked their spots at the national finals.

The competition now moves to Machakos for the Eastern regional finals set for 8th and 9th February 2020 at the Kenyatta Stadium.

An all-Star team comprising of 32 players, both boys and girls, will be selected from the 8 regional finals to attend a 10-day training camp in Spain where they will play friendlies against top Spanish La Liga Football Academies.
