Kenyan Under 20 ladies fall to Tunisia

02 April 2012, 16:01 John Maigwa

National Under 20 Women’s team started their second last stage of qualification to the Women’s world Cup with a 2-1 loss at home to Tunisia. It was a bad outing for the impressive girls who were constantly frustrated by extremely poor standards of officiating.in the 7th minute through a penalty converted by Ella Kabachi.

The penalty was awareded after the Kenyan defenders hacked down a Tunisian striker inside the box.The girls put up a gallant fight to try and wade down the constant attacks from the Tunisians.

They however stumbled again in the 38th minute when poor goalkeeping handed the North Africans a second goal. The keeper did not handle well a harmless cross, spitting the ball right on the path of Mezier Hurief who nodded the ball in.

The second half was better for the girls as they started well in constant attack. However, poor finishing sot them dearly as they did ot manage to break well when they reached the attacking third.

The reprieve came in the 73rd minute when top striker Sharon Jepkurui shot from the edge of the box and the Tunisian keeper simply waved the ball in. Efforst to try and draw the equalizer bore no fruits as no goal was forthcoming.

Kenya now rests for two weeks before they head to Tunis for the return leg, hoping to overturn the deficit.  If they win convincingly, then they will be on the way to the last round where they might meet either Ghana or South Africa. A win in that stage will wave them into the World Cup that wil be held in Japan in August.
