Telkom lost their first match against defending champions Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) at the on going Africa Hockey Cup for Club Championships on Thursday evening.
The two teams mate again in this years tournament and Telkom will be hoping to revenge against the GRA who beat them 1-0 at the final to relinquish their title early this year in Accra, Ghana.
The first-half was tense with GRA fully aware of the prize at stake. Both teams did flash early danger signs though things changed in the second half as a Vivian Narkuoh penalty corner conversion in the third quarter was enough to give the Ghanaian giants their third victory in the tournament, a result that assured them a place in the final.
The result meant Telkom ended top of the round-robin phase on 12 points but locked out Ghana Police, who finished third with 10 points, a point behind compatriots.
