Bangla-Pesa Slum Boys Bounce Back In OdiMtaani

Slum Boys Shofco FC from Bangladesh bounced back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Young Talents from Miritini during the FKF OdiBets Mombasa County League match played at St. Mary’s Bangladesh ground in Mombasa. The win redeemed Shofco’s hopes after a lukewarm start in the league match that saw them record three draws and one lose. Determined to restore their dented pride the Slum Boys threw everything into attack and drew the first blood in the 6’th min through Eric Ngele. Lawrence Junior made it 2-0 five minutes to break as Evans Ochieng sealed victory in the 80’th min. With the win the Maurice Odao coached side have 6 points from 5 matches and are placed in the 4’th position in the 7 team Pool F log. Shofco have completed the first leg as they await the verdict of their home match against Talanta Sportiff which was a non starter after the visiting teams refused to enter  the pitch. Shofco FC is sponsored by a Non Governmental Organisation, Shinning Hope for Communities, a grassroot movement that catalyzes large scale transformation in urbane slums. The club is based in Bangladesh, Mombasa’s largest slum renown for Bangla-Pesa, a complementary  currency that has become a medium of exchange for the residents. Meanwhile in the other league match played at Magongo primary ground onsong Simba Apparell trounced Pendua Rangers 2-0 to maintain lead at the summit of Pool C thanks to a brace by Mercelo Dennis  in the 56’th and 64’th min.

Despite the win  Destiny are still languishing at the bottom of  Pool D. They have 3 points after  playing 6 matches having won one match and lost 5 matches.
