Cardovillis impressed with Harlequins defence in Floodies Plate win

Kenya Harlequins tactician Charles Cardovillis praised his team after beating Mwamba 25-6 in the plate final of the impala floodlight tournament saying it is not what they wanted but relishes the happiness that comes with winning trophies and medals.
Quins lost to Impala 20-15 in the quarterfinals of the main cup before overcoming Nakuru in the plate semi-finals 22-13 going on to outplay Mwamba in the final to win the plate.
Cardovillis praised his charges pointing out defence as the key part which they got right subsequently helping them beat a dangerous Mwamba side.
“It’s a good feeling. It is not the final we wanted but its better than nothing. We faltered against Impala and I told the boys we can go out and win the plate. A trophy is a trophy, so they get the plate and will wear medals around their necks, bring happiness and trophy to the club and you know that winning can be a habit. So we hope to extend the mentality to Kenya Cup, He said.
“The boys have put in hard work and it has paid off. The defence has been good and that is what we have been working on. We are happy that we kept a very mobile, agile and running Mwamba from breaching our line. Those are the boxes we would like to tick.We will keep working on our defence because defence wins you championships.” he added.
The team will now shift focus to the new Kenya cup season set to kick off next month with an opener against Mwamba
