Ouma praises Sofapaka players

Sofapaka’s run of not losing in a competitive match against Tusker continued in the two sides’ FKF President’s Cup semifinal match at the Moi International Sports Centre (MISC) Kasarani on Sunday as Batoto Ba Mungu overcame the Brewers 1-0.

Joseph Nyaga got the only goal after 74 minutes and coach David Ouma was an elated man after the game, heaping praise on his players for believing in their abilities and going for a win against the league champions.

Ouma’s focus has now shifted the final, set for Tuesday 20 November, and he lauded his players for the feat – saying it gives the team another chance to win something in the season after a bad run in the second leg that saw them finish fourth.

“This is a result of my players believing well in themselves especially in the second period; a reflection of what we failed to do in the second leg of our league campaign, and I am very happy with the players for sticking to the plan in the second half,” he said.

“This win gives us a chance to keep the faith – another opportunity to get something out of a difficult season and I believe we will put our plans well in order and get the all-important win in the final.”

With the win, the church-sponsored side will play in their third consecutive President’s Cup final.
