Impala backs coach Oscar Osir is a happy man man after his team’s win over Blak Blad over the weekend despite terming their first half performance as average despite heading into the break leading 24-3.
Osir admitted of Blad having many chances to hurt his team but failing to utilise the chances. The students blowed away chances to score with loose passes and handling errors which gifted Impala with a chance to counter attack where they found difficulty defending.
“We were average in the first half. We did not convert out chances. Blad held on well especially on the set pieces. They had their chances but we lucky were did not convert them.” Osir said after the game.
He commends his team for a more solid performance in the second half that saw them run in two tries to take the game out of reach for the university boys who came late to reply with two tries.
“We settled more in the second half. We Consolidate our play more and our chances came. It was good to see the interplay at the back that saw us score more try from line breaks.” Osir added.
Impala are fifth with 34 points, one above sixth placed Mwamba and seventh placed Nakuru as the play off battle intensifies with four games remaining.
