The FIH ratified test matches between Kenya and Uganda national hockey sides (men and women) puck dropped on Thursday, 18th March 202 at Sikh Union Club in Nairobi.

Kenya women’s side had a dream start to the test matches after recording a commanding 11-00 win against their Uganda counterparts who often struggled to get themselves equal to the task.

On the other hand, the men’s teams settled for a 1-1 draw in a fixture that witnessed a much improved Ugandan side.

In the men’s game, Robinson Omutekete gave the hosts a lead in the 34th minute before Thomas Opio leveled matters five minutes later.
