FOCUS: Late goal deciders, Nairobi North dominance and Kisii University Feswall Abdalla.

“Compete & Dominate” 

The Nairobi region dominance was in the display this past Friday as Njiru Njeru and Frank Ochieng powered past any opponent that came their way. The boys from JKUAT put up a show booking a slot in the final event dubbed “Fainali” set for 20th November. 

Nairobi North Conference v. Western Conference   

The JKUAT players came in with only one goal, win and send a message to any other opponents taking part in this demonstration tournament. Friday night clash between the boys from JKUAT and Kisii University player Feswall Abdalla produced two late winning goals and comebacks as qualification was on the line. 

The first match between Njiru Njeru and Feswall was a “premium tears” kind of moment for the Western Conference hitman as he came from 2-0 down to equalizing, going in to catch up again as Njiru went up by a goal (3-2) to take the game level again- and eventually conceding a late 90+ winning goal to seal the game for the Nairobi North Conference team. Feswall suffered the same fate as he played Frank Ochieng losing the game 2-1 with the latter’s winning goal coming in the dying minutes of the game. 

Nairobi North Conference v. Rift Valley Conference 

The second match kicked off immediately with Njiru Njeru playing both matches for the Nairobi North Conference due to connection issues experienced by Frank Ochieng. Joel Mong’are an engineering student from Moi University, took the challenge to represent the Rift Valley region. 

Going 1-0 up in the half, Joel was starting to take hold of the game but Njiru Njeru had to pour out all his anger after a painful loss to Frank Kibet in the e-Lig Series Opener Nairobi derby showcase. The Computer science student from JKUAT came back scoring three goals and sealing a 3-2 win in the first match. 

Njiru later set the tone higher with a 5-2 convincing win in the second match of the team battle securing an 8-4 aggregate win against the Rift Valley region franchise. After this game, this meant a direct qualification for the Nairobi North players and a must-win for either of the remaining teams. 

Rift Valley Conference v. Western Conference 

The final matches of the day came down to Feswall Abdalla & Joel Mong’are with both fightings for slots in the e-Lig Series Fainali event. “It is a must-win game for both players.” Bruno Sorre, the e-Lig official commentator said as the match kicked off. 

Joel Mong’are came in the match knowing how strong Feswall was at the attack but poor at closing out the games as he had earlier lost both matches in the dying minutes of in-game FIFA. Losing 2-1 in the first match, Joel Mong’are set his eyes for the second game looking to secure a convincing win to book a slot in the Fainali event. Unluckily, Joel Mong’are could only scoop one point in this game giving Feswall a boarding pass for the e-Lig Series Fainali.

A bad performance by Joel and Yobra slowed down the Horizon organization quest to dominate the e-Lig standings after weekend two. Joel who finished fourth at the weekend opener tourney bagging him 21 points did not even qualify for the top two spots. Joel placed in conference D for weekend two had a rough day playing in a conference that had Yardie (KU), donuts (JKUAT), and Kamal (Strathmore), Bari Maina and Steve. Joel finished 5th in this conference and secured 17th-20th playoff position that only earned him 7points.

On the other side, Team Alpha players, GeeMajid and Kamal had a great day during weekend two steering the organization to sit top of the standings. GeeMajid reached the final where he lost and only bagged himself 23 points, while Kamal finished 5th.

The e-Lig University series moves into its third and final tournament run for the pilot season and will be back for season one.

The third tournament of the series will be on March 16th 2019 and at a venue we will communicate.


The new entrant into the All-Ladies Division Amanda lit up the division this past weekend with great play and clinical finishes. Amanda qualified for the final after a splendid play during the pools.

In the absence of Tuts, we might have missed a great matchup between her and Amanda because they both almost have a similar style of play execution. Amanda beat Bree and drew against Tamara. The final saw Tamara and Amanda face off in a match that ended 1-0 in favour of Amanda. Due to playing only one tourney, Amanda sits bottom of the table with 6 points. Tamara leads with 10 points, Bree(8 points), Tuts (6points).


Horizon Organization player Elias beat GeeMajid in the final of the e-Lig series weekend two to bag himself the prize plus 24 points. Elias, who was a replacement for Pablo, came in and maneuvered his way through Conference A which was a tight group. He finished 2nd beating Technical University of Kenya player Malvin on goal difference finishing after Flossin Mauwano.

Elias qualified through Conference A and met Rockie in the two-legged quarter-final where he made a comeback win (4-3 aggregate score). He lost 3-2 in the first leg of the game and made a late comeback in the 2nd leg to book a semi-final after a 2-0 win.
