It was a red letter day for Administration Police as they were humiliated 5-1 at home by Migori Youth FC in a National Super League (NSL) match played at the Camp Toyoyo, Sunday 24 November.
Before kick off tension was real;Administration Police FC players looked tired and worn out, perhaps due to the fact that they were facing a Migori Youth team that had clobbered St Joseph Youth 5-1 in the previous NSL fixture.
A delay of kick off made it even worse. The AP’s who were winless in their last seven didn’t psych up themselves, the opposite was happening to Robert Ojienda’s Migori Youth who wanted to set things rolling.
At 2:42pm, the match kicked off before a capacity crowd at the Camp Toyoyo and it was the visitors who took the game to the obviously tired looking Law Enforcers.
Herbert Okoth looked tired, Muteti Julius was off pace and so was the entire team.
A fast paced Migori Youth side toyed the more seasonal AP side and it was not long before the floodgates opened. A quick link up play between Robert Ouma and Clinton Okoth released Micheal Boko who’s brilliant cross found Elisha Odhiambo who glanced a header past a stranded Victor Ogola.
The home side did little to make a comeback and it was their tormentor-in-chief Odhiambo who was at the end of a calamitous defending by Aineah Wekesa to slot home the second goal.
Half time would end 2-0 in favour of the visitors and it was evident that Samuel Gitau’s artelary was exhausted.
The second half kicked off just like the first and another comical piece of defending this time round from Herbert Okoth ‘Doc’ gifted Odhiambo his third of the day. Captain Etemesi Asumwa reduced the deficit but it was not enough as Boko and Okoth scored the other two goals to pierce through the hearts of Administration Police.
Migori’s win was not by fluke for they had registered a similar scoreline a couple of days ago when they took on St. Joseph Youth FC in Awendo.
The good work did not go unnoticed. The presence of club patron, Uriri constituency MP Mark Nyamita seemed to have sprung their confidence and after the match, he gleefully offered to support the boys more and help in search of sponsors to help this talented side.
‘We are trying as much as possible to help these young talents grow. The little we have has pushed them this far and it can only get better if we get help.’
‘We want to make this side a hurb of talent and get as many players as possible to top league sides in Europe,’
‘You can see results are speaking for themselves. I’m sure scouts are watching and with the increased fanbase even away from home, better things will come,’ he told 442Media.
Migori Youth Coach Robert Ojienda,elated with the results promised to try maximise the boys potential as they aim at qualifying for the top flight next season.
‘We have been doing so much behind the scenes and we will take each match at a time,’ he said.
