Telkom Orange extended their domination of the Kenya Hockey Union, KHU national women league with a 4-2 thrashing over United States International University of Africa, USIU-A on Sunday as Kenya Police's poor run in the start of the new season continued after a 3-2 loss to Nairobi Simba.

Simba announced their intentions as early as the second minute when David Anangwe scored the first goal but Moses Mutira scored two quick goals to put Police on the driving seat. Simba equalized with 14 minutes remaining through Moses Cheplait.

Mutira then came close again but his goal was denied by the umpire. Despite the persistent attack from the officers, the 'Lions' fighting spirit continued in Simba's camp, Anangwe then hit the back of the net  with five minutes to go to give his side a deserved win.

 In the Orange camp, former captain Doreen Baraza and Jackline Jow each scored a brace to give the reigning champions a commanding lead in the table from two wins.

Jow was the first to hit the bar in the 16 minute, the only goal of the first period but outstanding Baraza scored two quick goals in the second half hitting the bar twice in the 41st and 43rd minutes.

The students morale were not dented by the goals and their attack paid off in the 49 minute when Lorraine Nondi scored USIU's first goal before her Pauline Naise scored the second a minute later.

Immediately on resumption of play, Orange won the ball and Jow wasted no chance scoring Orange's fourth goal.

"That was a good game and when we come to any match we expect a tough opposition from the opponent. The goals are very important because we may require them later if we tie with any team where a goal difference matters a lot. We still expect stiff competition through the league especially from the University sides which are playing in the KUSA league," explained Baraza.

In the other match played at the same stadium, Daystar beat Thika rovers by a solitary goal in the match played under heavy rain.

The rains was a blessing in disguise for Daystar who took advantage of the stagnant pool of water to squeeze home the lone goal in the 44 minute through Cejetan Odhiambo.
