Defending national netball champions Kaya Tiwi have been warned not to underrate this year’s finalists, St Peters, as the two sides look to battle it out for the title in a much-anticipated Coast region final clash set to be played at Malindi High School, Kilifi on Saturday.

St Peters, who have reached final after a long period of time in the cold, booked a final berth with Tiwi after defeating Bura girls 26-22. On the other side, Tiwi humiliated Kibokoni 82-6 to reach the finals in two consecutive years.

As the two sides prepare to lock horns, St Peters captain Mercy Nekesa was quick to warn Tiwi that they should expect a difficult task insisting they are upbeat ahead of the show-off.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Nekesa said: We know we are going to win, in any game, there must be losers and winners and we are ready for them. I know they are the favorites but they should also remember we didn’t reach the final just by bad or good luck, we fought for it.”

St Charles have been on fine form so far, coming to this final on the back of two impressive wins that also includes a 41-11 win against Kachochoroni Secondary.

However, Kaya Tiwi captain Melda Oguda has noted that her side has ‘nothing to lose’ and they are confident of being crowned the champions once again.

Oguda, who was speaking after reaching the final, said, “we have already won the final. Our focus is on the national competitions and East Africa but speaking of this final, we believe its going to Kwale again.”

Elsewhere in the boy’s volleyball semifinals, last year’s finalist Mwalupamba of Kwale will face Shimoni whereas Lamu based Lake Kenyatta has a date with Vitengeni.

In Girls Volleyball, St Johns will have to be at their best when they play on form Mapimo before St Peters entertain Mwangeka.
