Strathmore Coach pinpoints major undoings in Floodies semi

Strathmore Leos coach John Mbai says they let themselves down in the first half during their semifinal clash against Impala in the Floodlit tournament last Saturday.
In the first half Gideon Makumi gave Strathmore an early 3-0 led from a penalty as they staged a solid defence to keep the marauding Sarries at bay for almost 30 minutes.
In the final 10 minutes, Leos allowed Impala to score 15 points for a 15-3 lead at the break.
In the second half, the students came close to causing an upset but their efforts were hampered by a knock on in Impala’s 22.
Commenting on the narrow loss Mbai said,” I think we let down ourselves down in the opening half. Overally we did not play the game we wanted to. The players were a bit worried about what Impala were going to do and they never got to put them to pressure.”
“Its a positive that we were able to compete for 80 minutes but we let in three soft tries that did not do us a favour. The break down was not played as we wanted but there was an improvement in the set pieces.”
“It is a learning process and we have talked to the players and they are known where we let ourselves down¬† before the Kenya Cup.”
Leos now embark on final preparation before the season set for mid November.
