School Coach Owen Kassidy Daglish has two key reasons to point to for the loss
of his starting game on Tuesday 7 August 2012 at the Airtel sponsored Kenya Secondary School Sports Association (KSSSA)
National football games currently underway in Mombasa.
Red cards affected our game plan
Garissa High fell 2-0 to defending Champions Gekomoni High in a game played from 100hrs at Shimmo La Tewa.
The team, representing North Eastern Province, not only lost but ended the game two boys short after Saddam Abdulahi and Mohammed Deko saw red.
-The referee made some very controversial calls and the decisions made including the red cards affected our game plan, he said to futaa.com soon after the game
-The calls aside, you have to remember that my players are observing the holy month of Ramadhan and are fasting. They went into the game weak but still gave their best
-We hope to bounce back and now look forward to our next game tomorrow (Wed 8 Aug), he concluded
Garissa High will face off with 2011 runners up Tononoka High on Wednesday in their second Group A must win tie.
