Tusker 6-0 Zimmerman Youth
Tusker humbled Zimmerman youth to a 6-0 score line in the first preseason friendly match played today at the Ruaraka grounds. Tusker was using this game to help them test the various formations and gel together as they began their preseason training on 28th December, 2017.
Paul Odhiambo slotted the ball past the keeper to score the opener in the 4th minute of the match after sending the goalkeeper on the wrong side of the net. Minutes later Isaac was tackled from behind inside the 18yard box with the referee quickly pointing out for penalty. Odhiambo converted the penalty and a second goal for the Brewers was found. Two substitutions were made with new acquisition Peter Nzuki coming out for Njuguna who hails from the Tusker FC development side. The second goal made sure the first half ended 2-0.
On resumption of the second half, a new team came in which dominated the better part of it though missing a lot of chances in front of the away team’s goal. Timothy Otieno opened the second half barrenness chipping the ball past the goalkeeper. The team was still yearning for more goals though efforts from Osumba, Odongo and Achema proved a little bit difficult with the goalkeeper and the away defenders being solid.
With an excellent run from Mathew Odongo and a last wonderful cross which just landed on Timothy’s legs made him curve it smoothly and hence making his second goal and fourth for the match. Minutes later, Shivachi was roughly tackled by the away team defender and another penalty was called in favor of the Brewers which was converted by Timothy Otieno making his third for the match.
The away team made changes introducing another goalkeeper to lessen the burden of the first one as on the Brewers side Omar Bilal was also introduced in place of Boniface Muchiri. The junior combined well with Odongo and through the latter’s pass, Timothy Otieno found a nice spot in between the goal to slot the ball in hence scoring his fourth goal of the match and the final for the match.
The team resumes training on Monday as preseason preparations are ongoing.
