The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

Kenya De­fence Forces’ hand­ball teams im­pressed over the weekend, win­ning all their na­tional league fix­tures at the Nyayo Na­tional Sta­dium.

All the three mil­i­tary out­fits- Ulinzi (senior men’s team), Ulinzi Youth and Ulinzi women- won their six weekend ties. Matuu Youth were on the re­ceiv­ing end as both Ulinzi and Ulinzi Youth thwarted their hopes of reg­is­ter­ing their first win of their maiden sea­son in the league. Both matches pit­ting the Machakos-based Matuu Youth were a one-sided af­fair as the KDF senior lineup ham­mered them 64-18 with KDF Youth beat­ing them 52-19. Matuu who fielded six play­ers, and not usual seven could not han­dle Ulinzi’s or­di­nances and al­lowed them to cruise to a 27-7 lead at the break. In their se­cond face-off, KDF beat JKUAT 41-22.

KDF Youth squad led the new­com­ers 23-9 at the breather be­fore clump­ing them 52-19. The women’s mil­i­tary out­fit too won their two du­els 27-19 against Mt. Kenya Univer­sity (Thika cam­pus), and 38-21 against Sparkles.

Women’s league de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Nairobi Wa­ter con­tin­ued their un­beaten run by beat­ing ri­vals Na­tional Ce­re­als and Pro­duce Board 21-15 and St. Paul’s 45-11.
