Low blow as confusion mars ECL round 4

The concluded weekend of football action in Embu will go down as one of the most poorly organied match days. The same confusion that showed up in midweek persisted throughout the weekend.

Most notable will be the match between Kisimani and Runnyenjes which was slotted at Runyenjes Stadium Sunday. The visitors showed up but the hosts did not. Reason? Home side Runyenjes were adhering to a communique that had declared this particular round postponed.

Assistant Secretary General Charles Njoka had, through the league’s official Whatsapp Group, said that the league would be called off this weekend to pave way for the Nawiri Sacco tournament. He said that teams willing to play would need to make an arrangement between themselves.

Kisimani, on the other hand, was following the rule that holds the league superior to all other competitions. At the end of the day, the visitors were reportedly awarded a walkover. Charles however insists that the match was not played as there was no prior arrangement between the teams. That sets up a tricky situation that will probably end up before the disputes tribunal.

Elsewhere, the match between Kaa Ngumu and Shaolin remained in limbo up until the last minute and was eventually not played. Green Everton played Kangami after failing to secure a postponement and were able to collect their first maimum points in a 3-2 win.

Juventus brought to a halt Man-U’s perfect start with a 1-0 win at Karurina. That result makes 3K the biggest winners of the round as they go top of the log following a massive 7-0 drubbing of Gaturi.

Yatte won again at Embu Stadium as they came on top in a town derby. Two goals without reply helped the school side emerge victorious against FC Inter Dunga Dunga.

Unsuccessful tournament

Stakeholders’ fears were confirmed as the Nawiri Sacco tournament came to an unexplained halt on Sunday. No reason was given as to why the tournament did not hold its inter-ward level competitions and teams still remain in the dark.
