Yala sail to Lake Region 15s finals, Maseno out of 7s race

St Mary’s Yala and Maseno will once again face-off in the Lake Region Rugby 15s finals slated for Wednesday 20 March at Homabay High School.

Maseno have an opportunity to revenge last year’s disappointing exit. They held Yala to a 10-10 draw in the finals but the clash had to be decided by the toss of a coin which favoured Yala.  Yala on their part will be keen to return to National School set for Mombasa in April.


To reach the finals, Yala edged their county rivals Ambira 8-5. A try and a converted penalty made the Siaya-based side superior to their rivals who managed just one unconverted try.

Maseno beat Oriwo 10-0 in the second semi-final.  Rachel Wangila gave his side a lead through a penalty kick while Mike Arafat added a try that was converted by Jack Mongale.

Maseno crash out of 7s
