Nondies are the Tisap 7s Champions after a 12-7 sudden-death win over Strathmore Leos in the final played at Eldoret Sports Club.

Strathmore Leos aimed to secure their first win this season as they made their second consecutive final appearance following their participation in the Christie’s 7s.

Nondies, celebrating their 100 years of existence and undefeated in the tournament, were also eager to shine in the final after a long absence from such a stage.

The match began with a minute of silence for departed Kenya Lionesses lock Bernadette Olesia.

Nondies were quick off the blocks and off a penalty, they got a break on the following an offload to Moses Begi and the try was converted by Dan Okito for a 7-0 lead.

The students pulled back following an Andrew Matoka break on the left win and he raced on to score a try that Stephen Osumba converted for a 7-7.

There were no scores in the second half and the second half had to be decided by sudden death. Sudden death, Leos won a penalty and elected to go for a drop kick but Osumba’s kick went wide.

Strathmore Leo’s bright attack was thwarted by a knock-on. Nondies would go for a long kick off the scrum and their chase was fruitful.

A slip by a Leos player allowed a Nondies player to kick the ball to the try-box and his charging teammate Charles Odhiambo dived and grounded the ball for a win.
