Nairobi - Kenya and South Africa were the men's winners on the second day of the African Hockey championships.
Hosts Kenya bounced back from an opening day defeat to Egypt to see off Ghana 2-0 while in the earlier game reigning champions South Africa beat off a poor Egypt 6-1.
The Kenyans had no option but to go for the win and they started brightly, pushing the Ghanaians. They however only managed to get on the scoresheet in the second half.
The South Africans meanwhile showed their pedigree to dispatch Egypt and ensure a 100% record in the competition.
In the women's section, Kenya thrashed Tanzania 13-1 while Ghana and South Africa drew 1-1.
