Kisii Boys and Kisumu Girls High School were crowned rugby champions after silencing their rivals in the Nyanza Secondary Schools Games.

Kisii peeled off St Mary’s High Schools 8-5 to win the coveted Nyanza Secondary Games Rugby trophy.

With brain, brawn and versatility Kisii peeled off St Mary’s High School 8-5 after producing a scintillating display to wade off a tough challenge from their opponents in a tie played at the Kisumu Boys High School.

Despite the dusty and sweaty weather in the lakeside region, Kisii Captain Morgan Ochiel attributed their win to prayers, hard work and discipline.

“We got a lot of morale when we defeated Maseno High School in the semis and we have set our eyes on bagging the National Rugby trophy,” Ochiel said in a post-match interview with KNA Sports.

In the third-place play-off, Nyabondo Boys High School overcame Maseno High School 19-5.

In the girl’s tie, Kisumu Girls humbled Koru Girls to set a date with other regional winners in a tournament to be held in Machakos.
