After storming into Prescott Rift Valley semis, Menegai high coach Omela Okwemba is hopeful of scooping a double, Rift Valley and national titles.

Okwemba, whose charges had a good run in the preliminaries, will now face Utumishi High School in the semis slated for Saturday 30th at Kabianga School.

Going into the semis, the Nakuru-based side saw off Utumishi 26-05 before recording a slim 5-3 win over Kabianga in day one matches that were played on Thursday last week at Nakuru High School.

The next round matches held at Utumishi boys saw Menengai stretching their dominance, beating Koelel 8-3 and later on running riot over neighbours Nakuru High School 33-05 to book their semi-final slot.

“We are heading into the semifinals with a very tactical mindset, we are looking forward to getting into national and winning,” he told the Scrummage Africa in a post-match interview.

“There’s no doubt because my boys are also confident with the set piece so let’s wait for the big game, we are going for the title and also win the national s” he added.

Okwemba, who doubles as a Menengai Oilers winger, led Menegai High to KSSSA nationals in August and will be looking to continue with his impressive performance over the weekend.

The other semis will see hosts Kabianga taking on Koelel.

In the western region, East Africa 7s champions Koyonzo also stormed into semis alongside Vihiga, Kakamega High School and Maseno, the semis will be played on Saturday at Mmust grounds.
