Telkom orange beat Ghana Revenue to reach finals

By Bernard Okumu

Defending champions Telkom Orange stormed the Africa Hockey Club Championship final after beating Ghana Revenue Authority,GRA, 2-0 in the semi-finals in Lusaka.

Orange now face another Ghanaian team, Ghana Police, in Saturday’s final. First-half goals from veteran striker Jackline Mwangi and captain Betsy Omala were enough to ensure  the seven-time champions got past their opponents in the last-four encounter.

It was Orange’s best performance of the event as they made use of their first half penalty corners to score the two early goals and managed to keep out their opponents.

In the other last four clash, Ghana Police thrashed Sharkia from Egypt 6-1 to seal their spot in the final.

A hat-trick from Ghanaian international Martha Sarfoa set the West African side on their way to a comfortable win, with Faustina Aggrey, Linda Sasu and Nafisatu Umaru adding the other goals.

The men’s semi-final is slated for later today (Friday) with defending champions Sharkia taking on Niger Flickers of Nigeria while Ghana Trustees come up against Eastern Company also from Egypt for a place in the final.
