Kenya 7s blank Canada to reach trophy semis

Kenya 7s snapped a nine-match losing streak in the World 7s Series after a win over Canada in the Challenge trophy of the Hong Kong 7s played on Sunday morning.

Shujaa’s aim heading to the match was to end the losing streak that had seen them lose the last nine matches in the series. Paul Murunga’ charges who finished bottom after day losing the opening three matches looked bright from the start against, scoring three tries before the break.

Kenya 7s skipper Jeffery Olouch was the first on the scoresheet after a break in the middle. He dotted his try and Eden Agero added the extras for a lead in the second minute.

Four minutes later, veteran Andrew Amonde beat Canada defence in a similar fashion before dashing to score under the post.

Agero had an easy time to add the extras for a 14-0. Agero then crossed over for Kenya 7s’s final try in the opening half.

In the final half, Canada defence stood strong to stop Kenya from adding more points. Kenya would hold on to reach the semis.

They will play Japan at 0930 am.
