It was an all Western region affair at the rugby finals, in this year’s Kenya Secondary Sports Association (KSSA) games, between Kakamega County champions Koyonzo Boys and Vihiga Boys High School from Vihiga County, as a last minute try by on-form flyhalf Jackson Siketa sealed the win for the “Stormers” for a 22-12 full time score at the well attended match played at the Western Bulls – “Bull Ring” – grounds.

The national finals were a repeat of the Western region finals between the two sides that ended in a 17-7 score in favour of Koyonzo at the same venue.

Vihiga had a well coordinated attack at the national stage marshalled by the diminutive centre Owen “Kante” Kedera and will be looking forward to replicate the same form at the East and Central Africa competitions in Rwanda. The two teams will be joined in Rwanda by St. Mary’s Yala who defeated Kitondo School from Eastern in the playoffs.

Kakamega County representatives in the girls category, Mwira, lifted the trophy after a hard laboured 10-5 win over industrious Gilgil Girls. Both teams proceed to the East Africa competitions alongside Madira Girls who narrowly defeated Bishop Sulumeti, another Kakamega side, 5-0 in the 3/4th playoffs.

In football, Butere Girls marched to the finals after beating Madira Girls 1-0 and will meet Trans Nzoia County’s Wiyeta Girls in the finals, tomorrow.

In boys football, the Shanderema Eagles’ flight was slowed down as the crowd favourites suffered a 1-0 loss in the hands of St. Anthony Boys in the semifinals marking their exit in the title contention campaign. They however have another of redeeming themselves when they meet Agoro Sare in the playoffs tomorrow; the winner will be assured of the remaining slot to Rwanda.

Mwitoti Girls will battle it out with Soweto in the girls volleyball playoffs.
