Two tries for Ambaka as Kenya 7s thrash USA to remain unbeaten in Madrid

William Ambaka starred as the Kenya men’s national Sevens team made light work of USA, thumping the Americans 38-7 in their third match of the Madrid 7s on Sunday. 

The match,which saw Kenya come up against former coach Mike Friday,was marred by a nasty injury suffered by USA talisman Perry Baker who had to be stretchered off in the second half after landing awkwardly.

Ambaka opened the scoring in the first half from kick off with an unconverted try before the Kenya Harlequin man completed his brace later in the match after receiving a pass from Billy Odhiambo.

The win saw Shujaa remain unbeaten  in the round robin competition and Innocent Simiyu’s charges have a great chance of finishing top ahead of their final match against Argentina at 2:44pm.

Simiyu’s men had on Saturday thrashed Portugal 36-5 before following it up with a 19-5 victory over hosts Spain.

After Ambaka had given Kenya a 5-0 advantage with an unconverted try, USA responded through the speedy Baker to take a 7-5 lead.

KCB duo Vincent Onyala and Johnstone Olindi then combined before the latter scored a converted try between the sticks.

Captain Herman Humwa then ensured Shujaa took a healthy lead to half-time as he added a third try that was converted by Tony Omondi.

Billy Odhiambo also got himself on the try scorers list then turned provider for Ambaka’s second try before Jacob Ojee completed the rout.
