Malindi Action’s Ngala Annet netted a sublime hat-trick to lead her team to a convincing 3-0 victory over Tana River as the U15 COPA Coca-Cola action graced the north coast branch this past weekend.
The speedy striker scored two goals in the first half and completed her hat-trick just after the interval with a stunning third to ensure the girls from Malindi kept up to pace with Muungano who dismantled Majaoni 4-0, a scoreline which sees Muungano top the standings with a superior goal difference.
In the boys’ action, Victor Ochieng’ and Kahindi Junior were both on the target for Malindi United Academy in their 2-0 win over Kilifi United while Lamu hit Malindi South with the same scoreline. The games between Kilifi United and Tana River and Malindi Kenya versus Lamu both ended on a barren draw. The matches were played at Ngala Grounds in Malindi.
There was goals galore in the girls’ North West Rift Branch matches as Wiyeta Girls mauled a poor Kitale Union Primary side 8-0 while Tar Tar scored five goals less in their 3-0 win over Namanjalala. The boys’ action on the other hand was short of goals with two matches, Kitale Union versus Sikhendu Primary and Makutano Primary versus latter ending on barren draws. Namanjalala came from a goal down to beat Kesogon Primary 2-1, the latter losing their second match with the same scoreline against Kitale Union. Makutano kept a clean sheet in their 2-0 win over Liberty Primary.
A total of 58 matches were played in 9 Football Kenya Federation (FKF) branches countrywide.
