Mukumu Boys High School started the Kakamega County games on an impressive note beating Ingotse 8-0 in the first match played at St Peters Mumias on Wednesday evening.
A try and penalty were enough to lift Mukumu past their rivals in what was a closely contested clash. Mukumu’s lone try was scored by Marvin Sore while Walter Oigo added three points from the tee after they were awarded a penalty. Mukumu will be back in action on Thursday for a clash against Kilimani and Koyonzo.
Mukumu boys coach Allan Kasiti is happy to have picked a win and he is expecting his charges to finish the job and book a slot in the last eight.
“I expect them to put up a good show in the remaining two games, play some good rugby and get out of the pool, Kasiti told Scrummage.
Kasiti is a Western Bulls utility back and he was facing his former school which he captained in 2010 and 2011. He was impressed with the competition posed by Ingoste who are currently under the tutelage of his Western Bulls teammate Bailly Anyasi.
“It’s was a good feeling and emotional one since I was their (Ingotse) captain back then. The boys (Ingotse) are playing some good rugby and have a coach (Baily) during our time we never had one,” he added.
The matches will continue on Saturday and conclude on Saturday.
