The 2017 Africa Cup for Club Champions (ACCC) has not been a good edition for Strathmore University but despite struggling, the Scorpions will be seeking to end the tournament on a good note with improved performances in their last two fixtures.
The students are yet to record a win following three straight defeats. They first went down 4-0 to Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) on Saturday before narrowly losing 1-0 to country mates Telkom a day later. Ghana Police then piled more pressure on the Meshack Senge coached side with a 4-1 thrashing.
The three defeats now make it almost mathematically impossible for the Scorpions to find their way to the finals scheduled for Sunday January 28, 2018.
There is however a chance for the students to end the tournament heads high with victories in their two remaining preliminary matches.
After resting on Wednesday, the team is set to take on Nigeria’s KADA Queens on Wednesday at noon before winding up with a clash against Yobe Desert Queens, who are also from Nigeria, onThrsday.
Drop in local league
Back home, Strathmore have relinquished the second spot to United States International University (USIU-A) who reaped big this weekend with three hard-fought wins.
The impressive results took USIU’s point tally to 43, three ahead of Strathmore who have played a game more.
