Handball giants Kimilili Boys snapped Nduluni Boys impressive run with a 30-19 victory to finish top of Pool A in the ongoing National Secondary School Games in Embu.

Both sides had come into the clash with their semi-final places already secured after winning both their opening two fixtures yet needed the win to top that group in order land a fair draw in the last four.

Nyanza Region’s Kanyawanga topped Pool B meaning they will play Eastern Region’s Nduluni while Kimilili tackle Saniak.

In their last group match, Nduluni started on a bright note when they scored the first two goals but Kimilili’s experience showed in the second half of the game when their flanks started launching fireballs at the opposition goalmouth.

In the Girls’ category, defending champions Sage won their last group match 17-14 against White House from Coast Region to set up a semis showdown against St. Josephs Kirandich from the Rift Valley region.

Elsewhere, Kwathanze defeated Central Region’s Kahuho 21-12 to guarantee a place in the semis where they will meet Pool A winners Moi Girls Kamusinga.

Most of the coaches assessed that the quality of the game had improved considerably well as compared to the previous years, and that quality can only improve in the semifinals tomorrow.
