Menengai Oilers win maiden Great Rift 10 Aside title

Menengai Oilers are the Great Rift 10 Aside Champions after a 10-5 win over Homeboyz in the finals staged at Nakuru Athletic Club on Sunday 21 April evening.

This is their first ever triumph at the tournament which has been held since 1990. The victory makes them the 10th different winner of the title.

Homeboyz who were seeking to defend the title were dealt a blow after skipper Brian Songoi picked an injury.

They, however, took lead following an unconverted try by Mike Nyakundi. Anthony Kibet leveled the scores after scoring a try the other end.  Derrick Keyoga ensured a five-point gap after dotting Oilers second try.

The final half ended goalless and Oilers would end up dethroning Homeboyz in their first ever final appearance.

The Bronze went to KCB, who beat their Thika Road Rivals Blad Blad 17-5 for a podium finish. MMUST finished fifth following an impressive 33-10 win over Strathmore Leos. Samuel Mbeche, Claus Shirievo double, Ian Mukanzi and Emmanuel Makwata’s tries were enough for the Kakamega based side.
