Free scoring St. Anthony’s Boys Kitale and Wiyeta Girls have one hurdle to defend their soccer titles in both under 19 and under 16 at the finals of Rift Valley Region Secondary Schools Sports Association (RVSSSA) at Hill School, Eldoret.

In the Saints derby, St. Anthony from Trans Nzoia whitewashed their Elgeyo Marakwet St. Francis, Kimuron in the U19 category to set for the final match against Chemase Boys from Nandi, who beat former national champions Laiser Hill by a solitary goal.

The final meeting rekindles last year finals where St. Anthony won and booked for a national slot, where they lost the title to Upper Hill.

Ian Simiyu, Titus Kapchanga, Elly Saenyi and Omar Somobwana were on target for the saints in a free scoring match.

Captain Ian Karani said that they have had a good run and they have nothing but to defend their title come Friday morning at the same venue.

“Today we played well and we are expecting a fierce battle. We want to play better football and win again. Our target in East Africa championships,” said Karani.

His Chemase counterpart Griffins Situma was optimistic that they will not let the title flick out of their hands as it happened last year.

“We lost last year but this time, we want to play a better football and ensure that we get to the national level.” Said Situma who praised goal scorer Mark Jok for using very minimal chances to give them a win.

The two teams were in pool D where they played out on a barren draw.

In girls U19, Wiyeta had a free ride, scoring freely against Plateau. The Trans Nzoia based team beat their opponents un-replied six goals and booked a date against Itigo girls from Nandi by a solitary goal. Jackline Ekitela scored the lone goal to send Itigo to the finals.

In boys U16, St. Anthony Kitale thrashed St. Patrick’s Iten 4-0 and will face off with Brother Bosang who beat Kabianga school in a solitary goal.

Kitale goals were scored by Anzar Shamun, Kennedy Mwendwa, Christopher Raila and David Leon while Bosang’s goal was scored by Peter Ndiwa in the 18th minute.

Winners captain Cedric Muchina said the win came about by the “cooperation from the defence to the striking.”

In girls U16, Wiyeta mercilessly thrashed Kipsigis girls 18-0 and will play Tartar girls in the final who beat Uasin Gishu’s Kapkenda girls 2-0.

National volleyball defending champions Cheptil girls made their presence known by beating Kirandich in straight sets of 25-07, 25-25-11 and 25-12 in the first semifinal while Kesogon walloped Chebororwa 3-1 in 25-16, 25-15, 20-25 and 25-12.

In volleyball boys, Kipkenyeloi will face off with Tuiyo in finals. Kipkenyeloi beat Londian 3-0 (25-15, 25-18 and 25-12 while Tuiyo won against Kondabilet 3-1 (25-18, 26-24 and 25-18).
