Kabianga make history in Rift Valley 15s as Laiser lift 7s crown

Kabianga High School rugby team have won the Rift Valley Region 15s title after a 14 – 9 over the hosts Saint Patrick’s in a match played on Friday Morning.

To win this clash, the Kericho County champions booted in three penalties while winger Gabriel Okello landed their solitary try. Their opponents also scored three penalties. The win saw them become the first side from Kericho County to win the 15s title in the region.

Kabianga made it the regionals last year but lost all our matches at the group stages and were eliminated. This season they lost just one match on their route to the finals.

In the semis, Kabianga eliminated Suwerwa after a 19-18 scoreline in a closely contested clash played on Thursday.  Saint Patrick, on the other hand, had to toil past Kapsabet for a 9-6 win.

In the 7s category, Laiser Hill Academy lifted the crown after a 19-17 win over Menengai High in the finals played at Singore Girls . The two sides will proceed to the finals set for Mombasa in April.
