Kenyatta University win Impala Floodlit title

27 October 2014, 13:12

Nairobi - Kenyatta University's Blak Blad successfully defended their Impala Floodlit Universities title on Saturday.

Blak Blad beat United States International University-Africa (USIU-A) 20-16 in the final of the tournament.

Michael “Tank” Otieno, the team’s coach, said the team has got better and better since he took over.

“These boys have greatly improved since I took over three years ago,” Otieno told the Daily Nation. “They barely passed the ball (before I took over).”

Otieno’s team raced to a 12-0 lead after tries from open side flanker Rocky Anguko and full back Rueben Moegi and a conversion from fly-half Felix Juma.

USIU-A struck back just before half-time, with Afred Odawa scoring a penalty to open his team’s account.

Anguko extended Blak Blad’s lead with another try soon after play resumed, but Odawa narrowed the deficit with another penalty to make sure his side didn’t fall too far behind.

USIU-A  went on to cut the lead to just one point after Moses Seroney scored two tries which both came from mauls.

They were unable to get another score and win the game, and Moegi put the game beyond doubt when he scored a penalty to take the scores to 20-16.

Meanwhile, Ofafa Jericho were unable to hold onto their title in the Schools’ competition. Nairobi Eastlands school were defeated 30-10 by Laiser Hill Academy in the final.

James Kaili, Jericho’s coach, said his Laiser Hill were the better side on the day and deserved to win.

“We had worthy opponents as they gave us a good match,” Kaili said.

“We were slow in reaction and didn’t have the urgency to attack especially in the first half.”
