Kalekwa elated with cup win



Sofapaka president Elly Kalekwa has hailed his side after they came from behind to beat Gor Mahia 6-5 on post match penalties and win the Kenya Power Charity Cup on Saturday.

The club president told supersport.com that he was delighted with their achievement and hopes that more trophies come their way in the upcoming season.

“I thank God for the win. We have started well. We have won a title and that will give the boys the confidence needed.”

“However the organizers need to improve on the timing next time. We played our match against Western Stima and only had an hour to rest before the finals, that brings fatigue to team but I’d like to thank them for this competition.”

He also commented on the way forward for the one day event.

“This is a big tournament being sponsored by a big corporate. They should expand it in terms of teams participating and increase the prize money in future. This will increase the competition if it happens,” he added.

Sofapaka pocketed $10,000 as champions following Duncan Ochieng’s save that denied Paul Kiongera in the penalty shootout.
