The amazing world of Soccer: Thika United 3 - KCB 2

After registering two losses in a row, our home team Thika United has been under a lot of pressure to perform and replicate their initial league star performance. Two weeks ago our boys were converted to mere whipping boys by AFC Leopards after being rubbed 5-0. Matter of fact, we had conceaded nine goals from 2 matches in our 4-1 loss to Batoto ba Mungu aka Sofapaka and the 5-0 drubbing by Ingwe. Many soccer pundits believe that Thika away record is not a pleasant sight especially after being brushed off by AFC Leopards.
 
The most appealing thing with Thika United is their fighting spirit. The biggest English Premier League sides find it hard to recover from a 2-0 deficit and take the full three points especially in an away match.Thika United did exactly that yesterday at the Nyayo National Stadium. Trailing 2-0 nil to KCB, Thika United changed the fortunes of the game to snatch a 3-2 win. The goals were courtesy of our wonder boy Francis Kahata, Kepha Aswani and Haji Mwachofi.  Francis Kahata's goal was a wonder strike which proves his credentials to be in the Under 23 National team.

On the other hand Captain Kepha Aswani with a goal and an assist was a great revelation in the 5 goal game. Although the last 15 minute saw a great onslaught by KCB, the Thika United defense maintained a solid performance to make sure Thika snatched the 3 points. However Coach Kamau should do something about the blunders in the defence since that was the origin of Tusker goals.

From that victory Thika United hopped Gor Mahia to take the fifth position,12 points behind leaders AFC Leopards. On the other hand, KCB loss means that they are in the 12 place on the table. Reminds me of Manchester United's loss to Everton at the Goodison Park.

We hope that Thika United continues with their magical recovery and with the flower boys (Karuturi Sports) visiting us next weekend, we are sure the goals will double. Make plans to attend the game at the Thika Municipal Stadium.
Have a bright Tuesday.
