Day 4 it is - as EALA wins in Soccer, beaten in Netball
…Tanzania shows prowess in Volleyball
East African Legislative Assembly, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania: 6th December 2017: Day 4 was interesting in Dar Es Salaam. In soccer, EALA staff once again proved their mettle whipping Parliament of Kenya 3-0 in the only encounter played at the Uhuru Stadium, Wednesday afternoon. Midfield dynamo, Ahmed Mwapambe was at it again - scoring early in the first half to give his team the lead. Tormentor-in-chief, Ibrahim Jamal would once again return to haunt Parliament of Kenya beating the goalkeeper, Naman Agengo twice in the second half to secure 3-0 win.
Though EALA dominated the proceedings in the first half, Parliament of Kenya smarting from a 0-7 loss in the first match to Parliament of Uganda two days ago, was more settled. Coach, Ally Mtumwa brought in a fresh pair of legs with the inclusion of EALA Clerk, Kenneth Madete for Hon Julius Wandera Maganda as the team sought to consolidate its lead. There were a few moments of inspiration for Kenya coached by Sylvester Ocholla as it pushed for a consolation goal. Parliament of Kenya’s Charles Musera missed opportunities in the second half as did winger Elijah Ichwara that could have narrowed the score-line.
As per the rules of the tournament, EALA which has scored 9 goals in two matches will not earn any point. Neither does the team that plays EALA benefit from the match.
Prior to the match, a one-minute silence was observed in memory of fallen Kitui West MP and former Minority Leader at the Kenya National Assembly, Hon Francis Nyenze who passed away – Wednesday at the Nairobi Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya.
In netball, the script was re-written as Parliament of Kenya whipped EALA 43-18. Parliament of Kenya led in all quarters (13-5), (23-10) (33-15) and 43-18). Parliament of Kenya’s Alcas Wasike scooped the most points netting 26 goals – while EALA’s Aida Nakabugo bagged 8 goals. The EALA team vastly improved showing more determination having lost to Parliament of Tanzania 74-8 in a match played yesterday.
In Men’s Volleyball, Tanzania beat Uganda 3-0 (25-17), (25-17) and (25-9). In Women’s Volleyball, Tanzania once again reigned supreme beating Parliament of Uganda with a similar margin – 3-0 in sets of (25-20), (25-18) and (25-20).
On Thursday, Parliament of Uganda will face off with Parliament of Tanzania before Parliament of Burundi locks horns with Parliament of Kenya in the second match. In netball, Parliament of Tanzania will also meet with Parliament of Uganda.
