Speaking on his boys’ performance in the competition, Koyonzo coach Elly Okwemba said: “The Boys did what we expected them to do. We are happy with their display and after back-to-back County titles, we now hope to win the regionals,” he told The Scummage Africa.
Mukumu settled for the third spot after a 21-12 over Musingu High School. The top three sides are expected to feature in the Regional Games set for St Peters Mumias next weekend.
Kakamega School who in recent years have focused on 15s Rugby saw their side fail to reach the knockout stage for another year. The East African 15s Champions and other sides that have been knocked out of the competition now shift focus to 15s rugby which is expected to return in 2023.
