Wazalendo tops the Kenya Hockey Union, KHU men's premier league standing with six points from two wins after the first weekend of the KHU league.

Wazalendo stunned champions, Kenya Police with a 1-0 win on the first day of the new season before registering a similar score on Sunday against Karate axiom.

Nelson Shilaku's second half goal in the 59 minute  score the goal against Axiom Sunday a day which also saw under dogs, University of Nairobi, UoN thrash a more experienced side, Daystar University 3-1 at the City Park stadium.

Daystar were the first to score through John Kariuki who found the back of the net with just three minutes of play but UoN equalized 20 minutes later through Derrick Odhiambo.

Dickson Mukasa then extended Daystar University lead in the 42 minute but two quick goals from John Wafula (58) and Kevin Omondi (59) sealed the win for the side that is facing financially difficulties.

Greensharks has so far conceded the highest number of goals, four in total after they went down 4-0 to Nairobi Simba . Goals from Imran Chaudry (46), Wilson Otieno (52)", George Mutira (59)" and Tanveer Matharu with five minutes left ensured that Nairobi Simba take all the three points.

In other matches played outside Nairobi, home teams recorded win with Kisumu Simba registering a 3-1 win over visiting Western Jaguar while premier league debutant, Mombasa Sports club, MSC beat Mvita XI 2-1 at the MSC ground in Mombasa.

Dennis Owoka, Bramwel Lijodi and William Oketch were on target for Kisumu Simba while Victor Chidi scored the consolation for Jaguars in the 44 minute.

Zeller Tatiana's solitary goal helped Sliders beat Blue Eaglets 1-0.

In Italy, Kenyans Brian Musasia scored a brace in his second match of the Italian Serie A2M hockey league with Barnabas Odhiambo adding another but the three goals from Kenyans could not help them overpower Ferrini who beat HC Superba 9-3.

Musasia is a defensive midfielder who joined Italian league in February from Strathmore Gladiators and has so far scored seven goals in the serie A2M, including in his debut game in the Copa Italia league against Liguria.

He has also scored against Genova and Moncalvo to take his tally to seven in the two leagues, Copa Italia and Italian serie A2M.

"It feels good especially being able to score goals in every match, it gives me motivation. The season is just halfway but i hope for the best," said Musasia who shares the same number of goals with Odhiambo, attacking midfielder who 's been playing in the Italian league for the last four years.

"We share the same number of goals with Barnabas (Barnu) who is a great role model to most of the team members and am finding it hard to fit into his shoes," Musasia told sportsnewsarena.com from Italy.
