Airtel Rising Stars national champions, Passenga Boys of Aberdare Region came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Coast’s Green Palms at Kisumu Moi Stadium on Wednesday afternoon during the Kenya Secondary School Sports Association Term 2B Games clash.

Gideon Ruwa netted for Palms in the first half before John Avire restored parity late into the second to secure his side four points following Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Northern Region’s Saburlei.

At Kisumu Boys School, Metropolitan’s Laiser Hill crushed Saburlei 7-1 with Peter Kinyanjui scoring a double hat-trick in the goal avalanche.

Richard Ondanda added the other with Suleiman Hussein on target for what was a scant consolation for the team from the Northern Region.

Laiser sailed to the semis after bagging six points following Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Green Palms, while Passenga will need at least a draw from Thursday’s duel against them to claim a last four slot.


Green Palms coach Swalleh Abdalla once again lamented his boys could not adapt to the Moi Stadium’s artificial turf.

“We played well and am proud of my boys despite conceding the equaliser late. I still feel the environment here has not favoured them, the turf and the mid morning heat.

“We will try to score as many goals as we can against whipping boys Saburlei to make the semis,” he added.

Meanwhile, in volleyball girls category, Wabera humbled Hospital Hill 3-0, sets of 28-8, 25-9, and 25-6.
Malava reigned over Cheptil 3-1, 25-23,28-26, 20-25, and 25-16. Cheptil claimed the third set 25-20.
