Wiyeta reach FEASSA finals, Kakamega crash out
Hosts Kawempe Muslim are now the only obstacle standing in the way of Kenya’s Wiyeta and glory at the Federation of East Africa Secondary School Association (FEASSA) Games in Gulu, Uganda.
The two heavyweights clash on Saturday in the girls’ football finals at the Pece Stadium as the 16th edition of the regional competition that attracted teams from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan draws to a close.
Wiyeta, the national champions, punched through Tanzania’s Alliance Girls 4-0 to advance to the finals with their Saturday rivals sailing through via post-match penalties (6-5) after drawing 0-0 against Mukono High in regular time.
A Monica Etot brace and one goal apiece from Jentrix Shikangwa and Martha Amunyelet handed the Kenyan champions a morale-boosting victory ahead of Saturday’s finals.
“We feel good winning 4-0 although our target was 7-0. Now we have a job to finish tomorrow. We can already see the trophy,” Wiyeta captain Robai Shari said.
Their male counterparts Kakamega High fell short in the semis after falling to Jinja Secondary School 2-0 with the home boys now set to face play 12-time champions St Mary’s Kitende.
In volleyball, national champions Kwanthanze sailed through to the finals after humiliating Cheptil 3-0 (25-15 25-9 25-22) in an all-Kenyan affair. They will now play St. Alloys of Rwanda who defeated G.S Indangaburezi 3-0.
Laiser Hill won the boys’ rugby 15s title after pummeling Namilyango of Uganda 64-0 in their last match.
