  • Description

    Kenyan won the East and Central African Challenge Cup on Sunday (9 November) for soccer only by post-match penalties after a gruelling two hour battle with Malawi.

    At the end of the match, the score was two goals all. The referee allowed thirty minutes of extra time but this produced no more goals. So he ordered post-match penalties. Kenya converted three of its penalties ... and malawi only managed two.

    So, against the run of play during the match, Kenya was declared the winner. It's the third time the country has won one the cup ... but Malawi has every reason to be proud of its effort. It's the first time the country has taken part and the team became the first newcomer ever to reach the finals.

    Malawi opened the scoring when Msiska sent is a rebound from inside the penalty box and the half time score was one-nil to Malawi. In the 65th minute of play, Chege kicked the equalising goal and this was followed by a header from the Malawi player, Phiri ten minutes later to put Malawi into the lead again. Two minutes from full time, Kenyan player Ochieng kicked the equaliser and took the score to two goals all.

    It was a rough game in parts and several Kenyan players were warned by the referee for their tactics.
