13 February 2012, 10:55
Kenya lifted the Plate title at the USA Sevens in Las Vegas courtesy
of a 21-7 win over Argentina early Monday morning (local time). They
found themselves trailing to Agustin Migiliore’s early converted try but
captain Sidney Ashioya reduced the deficit towards the end of the first
half with Nato Simiyu converting to level the scores at 7-7 heading
into the interval.
Humphrey Kayange put Kenya ahead upon resumption, Simiyu converting
to take the scores to 14-7 before David Ambunya put the issue beyond
doubt, his try converted by Kayange to hand Kenya the 21-7 result and
with it 13 more points that increased Kenya’s points tally to 26 as they
moved to 12th overall in the latest standings after five rounds of the
2011-2012 HSBC Sevens World Series.
